Question

I have an Edlebrock performer 4bbl carb w/ electric choke. My mechanic told me the power feed to the choke (which was coming directly off the coil) was wrong. He said it should come from the alternator but didn't know where to get it since this is not original equipment. I know there are many set-ups like this one out there. Where did you get the positive power for your choke?

On my '79, the choke feed comes from the oil press. switch (so does the juice for the throttle solenoid). It's a 3-prong connector with 2 wires coming out the back on the timing cover. Hope this helps...

Funny with the same carb set up AMC used the oil pressure switch (79 UP)and Ford used the Field wire on the alternator, so you have your choice. Personally, I have my Jeep wired the Amc way and my Ford wired the Ford way and like the AMC way better, just be sure the way you choose only gets power when the motor is running or it will be like my Dodge motorhome and if you turn the key on for a few minutes then try to start it when cold, it won't start because the choke is open.
