Post Choke
Sorry to ask a stupid question, but does the first few millimetres pull on the choke simply increase the tickover speed, without making the mixture richer?

It's a question of making the plugs sooty (or not) by leaving it running for a while with the choke pulled out just a little - until it's warm enough to tick over at the right speed without the choke.

Post Re: Choke
it may depend on how the choke is set up. You probably need to look. Something I have always intended to do myself. You can operate the choke at the carb end.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's probably electrical (or, an electric fuel pump!) ....
