the hot wire to the (+) side of the choke should be ingition on position switchble,
the solenoid S lead is only hot while cranking and the I lead is only there to momentarly by pass the ign resistior wire to deliver 12 full volts to the coil while cranking.
so the way youe mech has it the choke is only working for a few seconds which is not nealy enough to to open it
EDIT: if you wire it to the sol batt terminal(the large red wires) the choke will always be on and eventually burn out and will discharge your batt.
when i did one of my old stangs I wired the choke right from the assy terminal of the fuse block. just make sure its a switchable terminal as some are always hot
