electrical circuits near carb

I have a 1980 chevette.  Anybody know anything about the wiring for the EFE
heater and the hot wire on the automatic choke?  The EFE heater is a thick
gasket between the carb and the intake with a grid to heat the air+gas vapor
to prevent icing in the intake.  The hot wire for the choke turns the choke
off slowly by heating a bimetalic strip.

These circuits are dead on my car.

QUESTION: Is there a fusable link in this circuit?  Where is it?  What does
a fusable link look like?  I didn’t see a fuse for it with the other fuses.

The Chevy dealer here says they don’t keep service books on cars older than
6 years!!!!!  Chiltons doesn’t go into that much detail on this.  Any hints
appreciated.

    GM Factory Service Manuals are only available through the publishers.  (Not sure if GM stocks real recient ones or not).  I believe GM orders the manuals and then sells them to you, the uninformed public, for a small profit.  

                    To get manuals, call or write: Helm Inc.
                                                   14310 Hamilton Ave.
                                                   Highland Park, MI  48203

    Try checking your main branch public library.  They should have TONS
    of manuals, including genuine factory manuals for your car… but
    they are kept in the reserve section or the "stacks".  I can still
    borrow the factory Chevy service manual for my ’67!!
