Motobecane Carbureator Help!!!

Does anyone out there have any expertise in regards to a carb on Motobecane Moped?

I resurrected a 78' Motobecane Mobylette 50V and it used to only run with the choke on. I pulled apart the carb and soaked it in carb cleaner, and cleaned it very well.

Now, I can't seem to remember which direction the carb float goes (needle end up, or needle end down)

Are there any carb rebuild instructions anywhere? Also, the brass plug underneath the fuel jet seems to leak badly, dripping fuel all over the muffler. It never had a gasket or "o" ring on it before, and never leaked until now.

Please help!!!!! The bike took off like a rocket when I tried to start it, so I know once it's all taken care of it should run well. I'd really hate to junk it.

Thanks in advance!
