Post Quadrajet electric choke.

I have a 79' Malibu with a Rochester Quadrajet carburetor and electric choke. The choke isn't pluged-in and I'm not sure how it should be wired. Any help will be appreciated.

Well, what you need is power with ignition switch on, confirm that you have no voltage with switch off, with test light or meter. do you need to run a new wire, or is it just disconnected?

It looks like I need to run the wire. I don't think the car had an electric choke to begin with.

Thanks for the reply.

Just run a new switched wire feed to the choke & make sure it gets a full 12 volts. ( Don't use an accessory feed )
