    Should be a terminal marked ign. This is only hot when you turn on the key.

    If you poke around with the key off and on with a multi meter, there are a few open places in the box that you can plug into.

    Should be able to go to the hot side of the solenoid on your starter for the electric choke. In the fuse box there should be plug ins next to ignition hot items. You can also hook up to accessory items for the tack, try the plug next to the stereo fuse

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken
