Carb help?

Can someone walk me through the process on wiring an electric carb? Just converted from manual choke and not sure where to get the proper wire and where to run it

That's a good place. You need 12 volts that is only hot when the switch is in "Run"

Sorry I took so long, I usually go on the forum at night so I kept forgetting to check the next morning.... I tapped into the black wire with a dark green stripe and ran it through the windshield wiper fluid line hole, across under the cowl and up the intake manifold then I ran the ground for the choke to an intake bolt

Also I was wondering what this was in the back of the manifold directly behind the carb?

First one is a vacuum tee. On your car, you only need manifold vacuum for an automatic transmission since you do not have a brake booster. The unused ports on the tee can just be capped. On cars with smog equipment, the others would be used. The other piece is nothing I'm familiar with. It looks like a hydraulic line??? What does it attach to on the other end? My guess is nothing, and it is probably not needed.
