Brown Heater Wire

Hi all, spent some time yesterday removing my old heater wiring harnesses. Just wondering, on my 68 it seems as though the heater harness was fed by a Brown wire. Since I am not going to replace any of that stuff (Anytime soon). Would it be possible to run my electric choke off of that wire. It seems to be 12Volts switched.

Re: Brown Heater Wire

You could or you can just run a wire from the IGN terminal on the fuseblock.

Re: Brown Heater Wire

If it's 12v "key on", and I assume ahead of the blower switch, it should work fine. I used the wire that used to operate the anti-diesel solenoid. Now I have a chokeless Holley.
