yeloxr7 said:If the truck was originally equipped with an electric choke, and the electric choke on the Holley is hooked up to the original wire, you will not see 12v at the choke housing unless the engine is running. This is due to the fact that the factory electric choke is run off the STA terminal on the alternator, which only has voltage when the alternator rotor is spinning.
well i havent tried adjusting it yet but heres what happened today.
I installed a set of gauges and one of them included a voltmeter and when i turned the key to run position it only had 10 volts and when i started the motor and reved it the voltage didnt climb, i verified this with the voltmeter and still its not charging. I happened to have a spare alt so i put it in and now its charging just fine and dandy.
I wonder if my problems were that my alt recently died thus lowering the voltage causing the choke to not have enough power to work correctly.
This makes sense because the choke was working but just recently quit.
I have to wait till tommorow and its cold to see, i havent had time to check it.
I'll keep ya posted.
P.s. the choke is spliced to a wire on the firewall. It's switched with power in run and crank position. im sure its a full 12/14 volt circuit but ill double check tommorow aswell.
