    You can find the parts you need or a stocking distributor off their site.

    Mine has an electric choke bolted to those 4 threaded holes and a wire that is hot when the key is in the "on" - "run" position. I'll take a picture tomorrow and see if I can attach it.

    Yes, but my question is........

    "I know that the choke is missing, but could someone please tell me if thats all"

    What I mean is...
    Is it just the choke that is missing or is there something else....
    Where would the linkage hook up to??
    Does it hook up to the choke or is there another piece that I need for the linkage to connect to?

    Thanks for the help......

    OK here's what I found. That little arm that's hanging there on the side is all you need to hook to the tab on the back of the electric choke. I don't know if there is a mechanical set-up or not. I'll try to attach the picture. If it doesn't work for being (too large) send me your E-mail address and I'll send it direct. Later....
