Yes, you should still be able to get it to fire with the choke open. It may not idle well cold, but it should still fire. What worked for me was holding the throttle open just a bit, spinning up with the drill, the choking the carb with my thumb. I used my right hand on the drill, left hand on throttle and decomp until it was up to speed, then moved my left hand to choke the carb when I felt it wanting to start, then right hand to the throttle to keep it running. Once I got it to run for a bit, I switched to pedal start, which I got on the 1,000,342nd try.

I used the 3/8" bit driver that fits my impact and just chucked it in my electric drill. I gradually built up speed with the drill as to do as little damage to the Novi nut as possible.
