The same auto supply will carry hot air choke repair kits. I've seen them on the shelf at most NAPAs, and OReillys. Its Dorman part# 76850.
I only mention it because I went the same route. 5 years ago, I had a rotted out hot air choke that didnt work. The problem is that they default to CLOSED CHOKE when the tube is broken, which fouls out the engine....
So I installed the manual kit. Easy enough to install, works when used properly. But the problem was I was always forgetting to turn it off.. or turn it on.
I struggled through that for a year, then realized you could get the hot-air choke kit for $10 or so. It works beautifully. I never worry about it. Jeep starts right up, even sub-zero. Choke works as designed.
