Ford Festiva 1993 W.A Carbi

I had to replace the carbi with a 2nd hand on from the wreckers 3mths ago, only to find that this one to has given me probs as the choke system in it is not working properly. I have rang around in my state and others to try to find another of this kind to which i am having no luck at all. Have been quoted for new ones and very expensive to have put in, but today i was told by ford themselves they dont make new ones anymoreand have not for some time, so i am shocked to know that so many have given me a quote for a new one when they dont exist. CAN ANYONE HELP ME AS TO WHERE I CAN FIND A CARBI FOR MY CAR ( FORD FESTIVA 1993 WA MODEL....i have had this car 6 mths and hardly used it and im at wit ends with it.

Just because ford no longer produces doesn't mean parts stores don't have new ones they have bever sold. Now they are worth gold. Can't rebuild it? And what is its problem?
