    Default Electric Choke issues.

    Hey guys. I haven't posted on here in a bit but with summer coming around, I thought I might pick up some tools and start tearing at my Wrangler a bit more.

    my Jeep is an '87 Wrangler inline 6 automatic and I've recently installed a brandy new 2 barrel weber carburetor with an electric choke. The problem is that I'm not really exactly sure how to wire the new choke into the old wiring harness.

    Have you guys got any tips for me?

    The 258 engine has a line to the choke from the oil pressure switch. When using a Weber you need to get rid of that line in favor of a CONSTANT, KEYED 12V line. Had the same problem with mine!

    yea 12 v keyed source for power.
    going to have to adj the choke for best results
    starting point:
    cold- choke butterfly 1/4" from fully closed
    watch thru a full heat up until engine is warm then check to make
    sure choke has fully opened

    one thing to be aware of(that alot of people dont know) is that to get
    the choke to set while cold to that 1/4" you are suppose to push the
    accelerator all the way to the floor then take your foot fully off the
    pedal
