Default Re: Replacing a choke coil

The Inductor looks to be used for Buck converter (see how the Inductor and the diode are connected to verify), not for filtering so you need to get the correct one otherwise the output Voltage will not be correct.
Look at the application circuit of that 494 spec sheet.
Page 17 has the inductance calculator but you need to know many requirement info to come up with the correct inductor.
BTW, what is the color of that TOROID Ferrite/or Iron powder core? Light Blue? Gray?
