New weber carb
90 wrangler 4.2 need to know if i can run a wire from fuse panel to my choke just installed weber carb and org choke wire not hot .can the choke wire remain live all the time
To answer your question,no. The choke does not remain hot all the time. It is only hot when the engine is running and oil pressure is up. If you have a wire hot all the time your choke will never close and operate as intended with a cold engine.
That's why the original choke, and any electric replacement, are best wired through the electric choke switch. That's the other part on the side of the "T" fitting where the oil pressure sending unit is located. It is a switch that closes when oil pressure comes up to normal on the engine. If you draw power from any other switched source you will power up the electric coil in the choke (thus opening the choke) any time the switch is in the on position, like sitting with your key in 'on' but the engine not running (like some of us do occasionally to keep accessories powered up). Best to pull the power from the original pressure switch as designed.
