I’ve read around about ways to wire an electric choke on my ‘79 corvette and the best option seems to be a spade female adapter to the ignition spot in the fuse block, I’m just cautious about how much power will be running through the line so I can get the right gauge and in line fuse. Does anyone know specifics?

Sorry man. Beyond my not-so-extensive knowledge base but we have lots of members that just may know the answer... @turbozig is one resident electical genius that comes to mind. Maybe he will chime in.

A 5 Amp fused line should be plenty. I have done that on some older muscle cars with good results. Cheers!
