I would use the electric choke. All you need is a fused line that switches on when the engine starts. You should be able to buy an electric choke conversion for your new carb.

The original carburetor had a choke heat tube on it. Check the exhaust manifolds and intake manifold for a hole that's been plugged. Most Fords had the tube plugged into the right (passenger's side) exhaust manifold. You may find an exhaust crossover passage in the intake manifold and a provision for the choke heat tube there. How it works is hot exhaust gases are pulled up past the automatic choke to warm the choke so it opens up as the engine warms up. It sounds like a previous owner replaced the exhaust manifolds and carburetor with aftermarket parts. The electric choke set up would not be original to the vehicle. HTH. -Jim
