Hey. I just switched to electrical choke on my 67 with a 289. Not much to hook up to for power. Any pointers would be helpful. Coil is going to radio fuse and vacuum operated wipers. Thanks, hugh

You just want something that has power with the truck on. I think + side of ignition coil is usually where I ran them.

I purchased a new holley with electric choke and the manual says do not hook up to positive coil side because that takes too much power from the spark plugs. sorry to be a pain. i am new to this stuff.

On the old broncos, does the starter solenoid on the fender have 4 posts? 2 little studs? Can't remember but I was thinking one of them is hot when the key is on. You could go there.

Their might be a wire coming off the switch to under the hood near the firewall. If their is any--have someone turn the switch on and check the wire for power.When the switch is turned on.. If not.You could run a wire off the switch,but I,d have a fuse between it for safety--to keep from burning up any wires. Which comes to my mind. I think I ,ll go check on one of the small body ones this week.

If the radio is hooked up to the coil. You have to rember . If you are parked and turn the switch on to play the radio. You,ll burn the points up. Unless you went to electronic distributor. I don,t know if it would hurt the distributor. Some one else might know about that. Why don,t you put a junction block on it . Run a wire from the battery then hook the radio up.,but have it set up.The only time juice would be on it.Is when you turned the switch on .Then run you a wire from the junction to the coil. I,d have a in-line fuse for protection though.
