electric choke

I've got a 65 mustang with a 289. I put a 600 holley with an electric choke on it. The only thing is, I dont know how to hook up the electric choke. If anyone could help me with this that would be great.

Ground the negative side and hook the positive side to a wire that is only hot with the key on. Do not use the same wire that hooks up to your coil.

Electric choke

On a Ford best place is on the starter solenoid,if you are standing over the passenger fender looking down on the solenoid you will see two small terminals in the center,the one on your left is where you can run your wire.To verify this have someone turn the key on and off while you touch a test light to the terminal,if the light goes on and off with the key you got it right.
