my alternator dont have an s on it it only has bat. r,1,2,r,f and im trying to hook my elctric choke up with out it getting hot as fire. please help lol thanks
I just did this earlier this summer. 94 Echelon lx, and I swapped out my Weber carb with the manifold choke for an electric choke version. My "S" terminal on the alternator has constant 12v and drains the battery, so I cannot connect it there. I used the terminal on the back of the alternator that has a purple wire going to it, located at about 3 o'clock instead of the S terminal at 6 o'clock. It did not have a label on it that I recall. That one only has power going to it when the key is on. It worked flawlessly all summer long.
I suggest buying a multi-meter, you can get a cheap one for about 20 bucks at any hardware store. Put the black lead to the engine block, and put the red lead to your alternator terminals, key on and key off, to see which one is right.
