Help with Evinrude Power Pilot(?) problem

I have an old Checkmate runabout with a 115 hp Evinrude 1979 model 115999R outboard motor and an Evinrude Power Pilot control box. The control box has been deteriorating after 30 years of sun and weather and recently the motor will no longer start. It turns over most of the time, but seems the electric choke won't engage any more and whatever other problems. I want to sell the boat for $500 but the only replacement control box I saw is $400, making it not worth it. Can anyone suggest any sort of reasonable alternative to get it running again?

Thank you for any help!!!
