There must be a short to ground in the harness or engine somewhere. The
1983 does not have a choke, really, but an enrichment circuit. There is
a little red knob on the valve to "choke" the engine manually.
Disconnect the valve from the harness, take a resistance measurement at
the valve, it shouldn't be too much less than 5 ohms(~2-3 amps), I would
think. Check all connections, & wires for abrasions. If there is zero
ohms to ground on the harness/wire, that is your problem.
You may have to do some tracing with a meter &/or test lamp to find
where the switched side or the "choke" is grounding out.
