random stab in the dark

i cant see your photo because im at work and it will not show photo bucket images. you will want to make sure you are getting a full 12 volts for the edelbrock choke. im not sure what vehicle you have it in but i always run a wire from the ign circuit on my fuse block. if you don't want to go that route you can splice into another suitable Gage 12v wire with power feed only active in accessory or ignition( if you run it off an accessory it will be hot even if the engine is not running or heating up. an edelbrock tech once suggested the wiper power feed wire. there are a number of other wires you can run off of just would not run it off the distributor. the ground wire can be mounted to the carb its self. once you get your choke wired it will need to be adjusted usually especially if its been held open for a good amount of time. hope this helps.
