Hi Joe,
Could it be that you have a solex brand of carb on it, strange thing
Being not aware of the exact type you are dealing with i can only speak in
generally terms.
The choke device is in the ideal carb not existend and it can operate w/o
it. Meaning that it must be possible to manouver it in a position where it
doesn't interfere with the gasflow. when applied it has to shut the airflow
partially to enrich the mixture going in the cylinder.
From what you describe i can think of 2 ways to resolve the problem,
ignition wise wrong timing gives also foul plugs and bad (starting)
behaviour. Don't know what timing it needs, but 1,5-1,8 mm (before tdp)
pre-detonation is always OK.
Maybe someone has put in the wrong jet, only way to findout is to replace
with a smaller one...
other approach could be changing parts from good working mopeds to findout
if this solves the problem..
can't find more open doors to kick in..

 Peter, I find the carburetor on the Mobylette unlike many others that I
worked on and wonder if you could tell me how to make sure the choke is
 properly. I have one that will start and run but runs very rich and fouls
 plug very quickly. I suspect the choke is not set properly. This moped
 in very bad shape when I got it and has never run well for me. The rings
have been replaced, the muffler cleaned, carb cleaned, etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
