Where does the electric choke wire go?
For electric choke hookup, attach the bayonet end of the long electrical lead supplied to the positive terminal on the choke cap. The other end must be connected to an ignition activated 12-volt source. The distributor side of the ignition coil is NOT a 12- volt source. It is a 7-9-volt source after cranking.
