My original choke cable finally gave out. I was able to purchase a new OEM cable (78310-90A04) from Toyota for $62. Installing it was easier than I thought it would be, so the month I spent procrastinating was unnecessary. I started to loosen all the bolts/screws on the driver's side dash before I realized I didn't have to remove any of it. You can simply unscrew the choke knob, then the retainer nut, and remove the cable from behind the dash. Next, you will have to carefully disconnect the wire that lights up when the choke is enabled. I cut the old cable to make it easier to get thru the firewall. I left the engine side old cable as is so i could snake the new cable into the identical location. Fed the new cable thru the firewall from the inside, and re-installed the dash components and plugged in the wiring harness. After re-tracing the cable thru the engine compartment, I was able to connect the new cable to the carb. Last, from the floorboard, i pushed the rubber grommet (comes on new cable) into place in the firewall using a blunt tool so as not to tear the new grommet. That was all. If you are young and flexible, it should take no longer than fifteen minutes to replace the choke cable. Hope this helps.
