Help- No voltage at choke, pins in carb stopped

I have looked the the primer on the 258 and can't find any help. My 88 wrangler was tuned and ready for emissions testing. As I pull into the facilility the engine dies. Flooded. Mash the pedal and get it going after 12 tries. Look in the carb and the pins are full forward (rich?)and don't move when reved. Put a meter on the choke- no juice. All obvious connections are made. How can I tell if the computer is bad? ('Big Three' from the primer). New oxy sensor. It was running great and then wham. Haynes manual doesn't help. Thanks for any insight.

your power for the choke comes from the oil pressure switch that is teed in with the sending unit on the side of the engine down by your battery check and make sure it is working you need about 4lbs oil pressure to send power to your choke
