Weber Electric Choke

Hello All!! I have just purchased a 1989 Wrangler 6cyl 4.2L with the Weber upgrade. The electric choke is damaged which is causing it to stall when I come to a stop. Does anyone know where I can buy the electric choke separately? The Jeep runs well overall but the stalling is quite annoying. Someone mentioned that I should upgrade to a Holley but I think that if I rebuild the Weber, it should do just fine. I have never rebuilt a carb like this but I have rebuilt/rejetted a carb on my Harley. I think that it should not be too difficult! Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

Thanks for the link Fweaky but I need to find an electric choke for a 34 DGEC
Do you know where I can go for that? Sorry I did not mention that earlier, but I was unaware as to what model I had.

After a little online hunting, I discovered a site that sells parts for the Weber 34 DGEC. I was able to buy an electric choke for $23 including shipping. I also need a fast idle adjustment screw and the guy threw one in for free. He seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. Here is the link in case anyone else on here needs parts for their 34 DGEC.

Electric Choke arrived today and it took only 5 minutes to swap it out with the faulty one!! Jeep runs great now and does not even come close to stalling even when slamming on the brakes!!

This weekend I plan on attempting to repair my overly wobbly steering column! Hope it is not too difficult!

Later!

Great news for sure!! I also had to replace a broken fast idle screw. If anyone needs one, the size is M4-0.7 I bought a few @ ACE Hardware for like $.30 a piece.

Now I just need to find out how to properly adjust the 34DGEC. Anyone have any links for that? I am also going to replace the plugs on Sunday. That 1st plug near the A/C Compressor looks tough to get to though!! If I did not live in Central Florida, I would just remove the compressor, but even though it does not pump out much air, a little is better than none at red lights!!
