The plastic piece that connect the auto choke linkage to the choke itself has broken and been eaten. Where can I get that piece? Would a normal carb kit have it? Anyone have one they'd part with? I had an extra carb with the Edsel, but it is metal, proving older is better still.

If you mean the little rectangular thing (about 1/2 inch by 1/4 inch?) with a hole in it that the leverage rod connected to the choke plate goes through, no, it does not come in a rebuild kit.

But it's just a guide, external to the carb chamber. Why wouldn't your metal one work? Or, go to a plastics store and find something that won't melt if a little gas gets on it, and make your own.

Yeah, that's the piece, but the end of it has a wierd s-shaped piece that goes throught the end of the choke plate piece. It'll be tough to make, but I'll have to try I guess. Thanks for the response.
