80 Moby Carb questions

I was hoping for some help from the experts out there.

Finally got my Moby to start after many years. But there must be a fuel flow problem because it won't idle. I took apart the carb and throughly cleaned it, but I must have screwed something up with the choke.

Part of my problem is that my choke cable is severed. So, I am not able to "choke" when attempting to start it. So, I guess I can't tell if the carb is blocked because it may be that I need to 'choke', but I can't. I don't really know what the choke is supposed to do, so that's another part of my problem. (I only know that you typically start the moped with choke action.)

After cleaning the carb, I must have put the choke back together improperly because fuel is leaking out the bottom. Anybody know how it goes on an '80 Moby? I know that somehow the cable comes in from the bottom of the carburetor and applies some sort of pressure that opens a valve - I think. I'm working with 3 pieces, a brass piece with a hole the width of the tension cable, a spring, and a white plastic piece (also with a hole the width of the tension cable). I can't seem to: figure out how to set these 3 pieces to get tension, and, what the choke is actually supposed to do.

Anybody want to help?

Thanks much..
