There's a thread on this carb but I'll share this here.
Just remove the return spring and file off the little 'leg' that engages the choke plate. Install a compression spring where the original spring used to be to add friction and now you'll have a manual choke. I did this to one but the others I left the 'auto' choke operative. I don't see a lot of difference.
Now back to the 100:1 subject.
