It will be in the wiring harness on the passengerside. Believe the color is black. It should be energized when the truck is running. It has a funny looking end on it that looks like it wouldnt plug into any thing.

1981 chevy pickup with a carburated 305 is hard starting, runs rough and when warmed up runs fine.......have replaced two carbs and the problem still exists......the carb im using now is a factory rebuilt...


Is the choke operating properly? You say the current carb has an electric choke, so I am assuming the original carb did not have an electric choke. If that's the case, have you wired the electric choke to a power supply?

My 1981 Corvette Alternator light stays on and my choke light is also on and will not cut off making the engine race. Do I just need to replace the Alternator? thanks


I would ahve the alternator tested to see if it was bad first, if so I would replace it and see if that improves your choke situation. If the alternator is not putting out enough voltage it can affect other systems in you car including an electric choke system.

I need to no where the three wires go off the coil


Look at the top of the coil.It should have a - and a +. The - side goes to the one wire from your distributer. The + side goes to the wire that comes from your ignition switch and the other + wire could go to your electric choke connection on the carb.The + side is just a 12 volt supply point.

My 1981 chevy El Camino V6 3.8L 229 idle gets high when engine is hot and when engine gets cold idle drops not sure why can i have any suggestions


Sounds like a problem with your choke. It may just need to be cleaned (linkages and all). If the choke doesn't close after reaching operating temperature, the engine will rev high. This indicates a choke stuck in the open position. Also, you may need to look for a vacuum leak if cleaning it doesn't fix it. On a 1981 GM product, I'd expect the vacuum hoses to be stiff and cracking.

This sounds like a telltale choke issue. You running carburated right?
If it is what i think it is you have a choke thermostat on the carb. If so check the votage on the wire and if you have power then the choke thermostat has to be replaced. you can do a manual set of the choke behind the carb just to see if this is the problem.

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.
