Default Sisson solenoid choke for Briggs model KA engine

Hi everyone...

I've been searching for a vintage Sisson solenoid choke that fits a Briggs model KA engine for quite some time. They were not common; the application was for power to an early truck-mounted reefer unit as found on Thermo-King, Servel, Norge, or Frigidaire. Circa 1930s. I've posted in various blogs and on Enginads. Looking for any suggestions as to where else to look. I even went to a vintage large truck site hoping for a lead...all I got was a SCAMMER.

Anyway, all ideas GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Tom

Here are three pics of what I'm looking for. The first is actually mounted on a fellow collector's KA; the second is the Illustrated Parts List from Briggs showing it's location, and the third is mounted to a model RA Briggs, which used a similar setup.
