Default Electric choke conversion

Anyone know of a kit to convert the chokes on my Weber 9772 carbs from the intake manifold heated chokes to electric? This is on my 1994 7.4Ls. I've found some kits for other types of carbs, but not these yet.

Not aware of a conversion kit

Lots of folks switched to an eldbrock 1409 marine carb and claim easier to tune and starting. About $450 each. They are basically similar in design to the Weber.

Why the desire to change?

I realized one choke wasn't opening, which prevented the secondaries from opening. Disconnected the chokes, but that made starting an absolute bear.
Also had to do the intake gaskets on that same engine. Found block off plates for the exhaust crossovers in there and that's how I put it back together. After I realized that extra exhaust heat is probably what heats the choke up...
Also, there's no way I was putting that heavy cast iron manifold back on, so we'll see what kind of difference this one makes...

Found that an Edlebrock electric choke kit should bolt right on, so I bought one to try out and will report back.
