get your meter or 12volt circuit tester out and check for the wire attatched to the wiper motor that is hot with the key on, splice into that wire for the choke coil wire, and ground the other terminal to the carb body.
Theres no need to go all the way to the battery or all the way to the fuse box, just get it at the wiper motor.

I went to the coil one time and realized choke wasn't opening all the way ...then realized it wasn't full 12 volts (stock ignition system). I agree wiper motor.

Black wire connect to a grounding screw on the carb, red wire just connect to a keyed source.
I.E.
wipper. ACC, or connect to the radio power lead, this is only on with key.
DO NOT connect to the coil. You pull limited power and the choke may not work correctly. Even worse, the choke may pull from your ignition and you may find the car running like crap.
