Automatic choke problem


I recently bought a 1983 Cj-7 and I can't figure out how to get the automatic choke working. I'm assuming its electrical because there are a few wires and connectors that are disconnected. The engine starts and runs fine but it takes a good 2-5 minutes to get it to idle without feathering the gas. I've also noticed that it idles much smoother when I manually adjust the choke. I'm definitely not an expert when it comes to engines so I'm not even sure I will be able to repair it myself. I figured it was worth a shot though! I uploaded some pictures of the carburetor and the disconnected wires.
