New 2150 electric choke wire.

I have a new 2150 that came with an electric choke. My old carter had the heater tube. Well the question is about the electric choke and where I pull the electric from. I have it set up now that the electric to the choke will be hot when the ignition is on. I have read and have had advice that the electric should only be going to the electric choke when the motor is running. I have heard to hook it up to the oil pump or alternator. Today at my Jeep dealership this old mechanic that used to work on them said the 2150 would be fine the way I have it. Ristow, I am pretty sure you touched on this ealier but I can not find the thread when I researched it.

Will I burn up the choke having it hook up with just the ignition? Can I keep it the way I have it now

The original idea of having the choke rigged thru the oil pressure switch is to prevent an early desactivation of the choke. So the worst case is that your choke opens too early.

The advantage of the original set up is that if your oil pressure takes a dive.... you engine will run like crap.... too rich.

so to answer your question, you are fine running it to an ignition controlled wire.

The only reason for the pressure switch is so that if you sit with the key on then your choke will already be warm when you go to start it and it wont work. You will be fine with it like that. Just dont sit around with the key on engine off.
