oil pressure switch wiring with new carb and choke

Im getting the motor craft carb kit from the guy on ebay and will be using the electric choke of the old carter carb. The wiring is all messed up so i want to get it fixed before the new carb arrives. What is the correct wiring for the electric choke. I can see the wire and its still plugged into the factory choke but I have a mechanical oil pressure gauge to I will need to get the correct switch. (what color wiring and how name go into the switch for a 1982 jeep. And whet ells must i sort out thanks.

You can keep the mechanical gauge but you will need to add a "T" and an oil pressure switch.

Usually there is power to the revers Light switch that can supply the power.
Run one wire from the power lead to the Rev light (look for red wire in harness to tranny) to one terminal on the pressure switch. It might be there alleady.
Run the other side of the pressure switch to the e-choke terminal.

Do you want to hook up the manifold heater also?
Thart will require hooking up a relay in the circuit also.
