building one isnt that difficult eather. basically you just hook an arm or pin to act as a lever and put a cable on it. you can use the choke thats on it and just make an arm to actuate it manually.
for some clarification though, when at operating temp your choke should be fully open. I cant tell from your post if you are saying that you think it being fully opened is causeing it, or if you wired it open to fix it.
just in case, when cold the top butterfly should be mostly closed (choked off), and when at operating temp it should be fully open. If you just need it drivable, get some wire and actually tie the top butterfly open so it cant close. you will need to manually hold the rpms at 1500 for a minute with the pedal, then it should be warm enough to idle on its own to op temp.

Where is the hidden one?
Stupid question I know, but have you changed the fuel filters? Both of them?

id start by doing a normal check and tune. if your choke was messed up before then the carb may be tuned to make up for it. now that it is operating differently then its out of tune.
also with a manual now you have to watch that its not being bumped or pushed in, which can cause problems.
just pay attention to it for a while and see if you can figure out what causes it, then start from there.
