The power lead (12 volts) goes to the "S" terminal (small wire) of the Alternator, "S" is for Stator, then if the choke has a ground terminal it hooks to any convenient place on the engine, the intake bolt is best, just make sure the choke ground is less than 3 ohms.

How do you hook up the choke to carburetor?

Newer cars do not have carburetors. If your enigne has one, the "choke" plate is the topmost flapper-looking thing on the carburetor. Benath that is the throttle plate, which moves whent he acceprator pedal is pressed. The choke shoudlbe closed automatically when the engine is cold. If thengine is warm, the choke plate should be slightly closed. The engine design includes the necessary mechanism to operate the choke funtion automatically. If that has failed you can choose to repalce whatever is broken or cobble together a "throttle cable" to it so you can manually operate the choke function form the driver's seat. In the old days the cable would be secured to the dash justy above your left knee. Doubtful you will find such a "choike kit" in the autp parts stores these days sicne there are so few carburated engines around, but you should now have an idea as to what to do.

I have a 1979 bronco with a 351w engine im tyring to hook up my choke to the washer motor i ran a 14 g wire from the one that came out of the firewall to the choke and blew the fuse and found that the fuse...

I would wire up a relay between the battery and the choke solenoid. Fuse the choke separately in the engine compartment. You could run the relay coil off the same washer wire as before, but this way the washer fuse wouldn't have to source current to the choke. 25315115-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-3-0.jpg

R and fuel pump choke oil light is on

So if you have a manual pump you have the 2.8 V6 engine.
The choke/oil warning light can be telling you there is a problem with the oil pressure in the engine or the electric choke for the carb.
The defrost won't work right with an ac compressor problem because the compressor runs in defrost mode to dry the air blowing onto the windshield.

High idle won't shut off, uses obscene amounts of gas...

If you have a carb, and nothing but a carb, you probably need to have your carb adjusted. If your carb has an automatic choke, it could be stuck. Check and make sure the choke's butterfly valve (the one in the top of the carb) is opening up once your engine has warmed up. If it doesn't, disconnect the valve from the auto choke and manually open it, that should change idle. Do not drive with the choke disconnected. Write me back if that doesnt solve the problem.

New carburetor installed on 79 el camino

I am familiar with these, a manual choke carb works off of a bimetal coil in the manifold exhaust crossover on the passenger side of the intake, Make sure it is hooked up, then while the car is cold, on the rockchester carbs, use an 1/8 in drillbit to set choke. You have to loosen the three screws on the choke to set, when the choke flap, the very top one on the carb touches the drillbit, set it there and lock down screws, pump once or twice and it should start and idle, as the bimetal coil heats up it should open the top flap. if you try to accelerate before it is wam it will disconnect from the auto choke. I hope this helps if not please do not rate me at all, if it does help you fix your problem then please give me a fixya,

I have a truck that was equiped with a electronic carb & i went with a older standard carb., (carter quadrajet 4bbl # 7044206) i am needing to know how & where to run & hook up a manual choke. thank you...

you have to go to the parts store and buy a manual choke cable, attach it to the choke where it is suppost to be attached, mount it to the engine in a few spots with zip ties, and run the cable into the interior of the car through the firewall, you may have a couple unused plugs on the firewall you can take it through. If not, just foind the speddo cable entrance and with a knife make a hole next to the speedo in the rubber boot and feed it through there. when you take the cable through into the bottom of the dash where your going to mount the little handle, make sure you feed it through the top of some other wires, so it will not dangle or get in the way of your foot.

1980 ford f100 choke no voltage

I have somewhat of the same problem but not really. I would check the fuse but you have probably done that. I would run new medium grade wire from powerpoint ( 12V source ) that is hooked up to your ignition. Then run to your choke wire. you can also do a manual set of the choke to get it started. My choke doesn't work at all and needs to be replaced. Having the same starting problem though.
