I converted by '76 to Su's 2 years ago. I knew that the choke usually
was placed  as described by others at a blank on the upper right of the
dash, but I have fat hands and could not squeeze one to use the proper
place. I mounted a slotted  L bracket on the left side of the dash
(driver's side  as I have a LH model), just above
the hood handle, and mounted the choke there. You'll notice the square 
metal piece at the base of the dash. 

It's worked fine.
