The choke itself is on the other side of the carburetor. What you’ve shown are the linkages and cams that the choke activates but not the choke.

The parts in question are contained in/under the large round black plastic housing the other side of the Carb. The housing itself also can be loosened and turned to adjust how much the choke opening there is.

Take a look at the Servicemans Training Guide for the Carter carbs. It explains how it all works.

Those two wires are the "carb starter" pictured in the posting of the manual.
See electrical diagram for your year and model. Has nothing to do with the choke function.
That's why you don't "pedal" the gas starting it. You have to engage the starter until it starts, and that won't happen if you pedal the gas. When you push the pedal down that little ball completes the circuit to the starter. Once it starts, it disengages.

If you don't like it, then what I do is install a jumper which effectively takes it out of the circuit. So long as it's working and you learn how to use it, there's no issues here.
Somewhere on here if you search, HH posted the complete info on this device. I have it somewhere, but you can search as well as I can my files.
