    Well no ,I didn't necessarily mean a $75 choke resistor. Usually it's the hard to find things that are vehicle, and in some cases year, specific. If you find one, and you really need it, snap it up and worry about the cost later if, that is, you have the money to spare. That's always the main factor.

    Where would this resistor likely be mounted? I'm not sure I have one. Maybe that's why I dislike my choke so much...

    Exactly!

    If memory serves, the resistor was bolted to a boss on the intake manifold just to the rear of the choke t-stat. Been a long time since I've seen one though and the memory is a bit foggy.

    Not all engines or years used them. I think the resistor was sort of a time delay for the electric heater in the choke t-stat.

    Yes as said it should be right behind the choke t stat. Is it possible to post a pic of yours? 6 or 8 cyl? Make sure the choke pull off is working also.
