Holley Electric Choke,..where to wire from

To what are you wiring the positive wire from the Holley electric choke? The directions say to not wire it to the "+" side of the coil.

I guess I could wire it to the "IGN" port at the fuse box or maybe there's a better way,..maybe at the alternator or somewhere.

This wire is only to be hot when engine is running.

Any advice?

Re: Holley Electric Choke,..where to wire from

I'm not using my heater (no heater core installed) so I tapped the power for my choke to the orange wire on the firewall. I just keep the fan control ON all the time.

I was told you could use the wiper feed so thats what I tapped into for mine.

Re: Holley Electric Choke,..where to wire from

The electric choke should be wired to a switched, positive wire, that has power when the key is on and the engine is running. You have to use a switched wire or your choke will have power 24/7. The choke will not close and you will drain your battery.

As you mentioned, you might have to run a switched wire from your fuse block.

Good luck
Mike

Sounds like a plan. Which of the three wires to the wiper motor is to be used? (I guess I could test with my volt-meter,..lazy).

Thanks!

Battery side of coil is the easiest

I believe the wire is black with a yellow stripe (Top terminal) on wiper motor.

Correct,
Do not use coil + terminal as voltage will be reduced because of the resistive wire and choke heater will never get warm/hot enough to open.

Sorry I was thinking of pointless Dizzy type without ballast resisters or resister wiring.

Re: Holley Electric Choke,..where to wire from

Keep in mind wiper has power when ign switch set to accessory....

So if you sit listening to the stereo, you will be chokeless, dechoked, unchoked and cachocked.

Moved mine to the coil wire, but I do not have resistive wire.
