    This is more of a general car question, but it happened on my 1978 280Z with a Holley carb.

    Hrm... Those are good ideas. The wiper would be the best, but from the battery with a relay on the coil would be good too. I don't want to run anything else...

    12V for choke?

    Is there a good 12V to use for the electric choke that is already in the engine bay? Apparently I'm not supposed to use the 12V to the coil, so I'm out of ideas already. I'd appreciate any help!
