Default Old Ella Choked!

I have an old Ella. I think it was the first incarnation. The one with the circuit brd. It had been sitting collecting dust for probably 13 years. I dusted her off and turned her on the other day. I heard a hum, and a while later I smelled something burning. After turning her off, I opened her up.
It seems a wire that connects the two windings on the choke was touching the mounting bracket. Over the years the insulation dried out, became brittle and cracked, and shorted out to the chassis. The choke was toast.
I looked through all my old Ella paperwork, and can't find any info as to make, model, or values.
Does anyone know anything about this choke, and/or a replacement? I would appreciate any information. Thank you all.

Thank you Dave. I bought a Tent Labs E-Choke. I'm going to give that a try. But thanks for that information. I will make a note of that in my ELLA folder.
