The choke, the metal lever should be fully down for proper operation. If the engine runs with the lever full up it might indicate there is an air leak somewhere in the induction (intake) system. Either the carburetor or the intake manifold. I like to see the carb sealed to the intake with a gasoline resistant sealer such as Seal All and the kit supplied intake manifold gasket replaced with a good quality gasket material and also sealed well. Your description of bogging might be the result of an air leak. Thank you for keeping us posted on your results and success.
I have some stuff called. Moto Seal "ultimate gasket maker grey" is this what i would use to seal the intake?
I bought it but have never used it... i couldnt really figure out how or where to use it.

I have some gasket material... maybe i could make a new gasket for the manifold?
