Ignition coil and electric choke.

I'm facing two obstacles here.

1) The mechanic that installed my Edelbrock 1406 carb ran the positive wire from the choke to the (+) terminal on the coil. I have now been informed that this wire has to have it's own 12v power source and the best area for that is a space on the fuse panel that is only on when the ignition is one. What kind of wire and what kind of ends should I use to accomplish this? I think I can figure out how to get the wire through the fire wall.

2) I'm having some engine performance issues and think a new coil may solve these few issues. I've noticed that MSD and Pertronix make a coil with 40,000 volts and 45,000 volts and there are also several differnt Ohms as well like 3.0..etc. I have a 327 engine with points and was wondering what type/strength coil would work best.

Thanks.

Re: Ignition coil and electric choke.

Dean, the yellow wire plugging into the wiper motor will work for your choke. You can likely make the connection with the same wire that the previous connection used to the coil.

Re: Ignition coil and electric choke.

If you still have the original points distributor fed by resistance wire, hooking up that choke to the coil will likely cause you ignition problems.

Re: Ignition coil and electric choke.

Dean you have two options that are reliable.
One is quick and simple - feed the choke off the yellow windshield wiper circuit connector at the wiper motor.

The other is to feed a new wire from the fuse box on an ignition side connection and run it through the RS headlight hole in the firewall. If you have an RS you can fit the wire through the hole '67 is a wire bundle, '68 & '69 is a set of vacuum hoses. The hole is noted in the AIM but it is right next to and slightly above the bulkhead connector from the fuse panel.
