Cj 32/36 electric choke question

I believe I understand the electric choke should be connected to a solid 12v switched when the ignition is switched on... which I have tested and know is good. Question is, does the choke just need this 12v feed or, should something else be in this circuit? Does it simply remain 12v hot the entire time the engine is running? If so, I wonder how the choke is opened or closed based on temp., etc. PO had a 12v feed (which was feeding 0) and.. a sensor was spliced in.. not sure why since had that 12v feed been hot, the sensor would have had no affect.

Sensor?? The choke is a timer choke that opens slowly as soon as it sees 12 volts and just stays open as long as it sees power. The stock setup uses an oil pressure switch so it only starts opening when the engine starts, not when the key gets turned.
