Having no luck finding a choke assembly for my "58 348 tri-power(Rochester carbs). None of the parts books that I have list the complete choke assembly(spring, shaft lever, etc.) Any suggestion where I could purchase one?

Yes, choke was available as parts only.
In looking at the parts book the 1958 3 2 Bbl. used the same choke housing as a 1955-1957 with a 2 Bbl.,
The choke cover fit only the 3 2 Bbl and the Turboglide was different from a stick. I am sure any year 2 Bbl. cover would work, just the index mark will be a little different,
The baffle plate in the housing next to the thermomatic spring is the same as the cover, 1955-1957 2 Bbl.
Shaft and link same as above, choke piston shows for 1958 3 2 Bbl only.
If it were mine I would find a 1955-1957 2 barrel carb. and rob the choke assembly from that.
