Ed, if your starting linkage is all working, there's no way it can burn gas on the diesel side, the butterfly in the manifold closes off all airflow through the carb...that lever on the carb should be hooked to part of the starting linkage, so it holds the float valve closed to prevent the carb from flooding when you change over to diesel. Sounds like you may have issues or a "missing link" with the changover mechanism still, if the carb lever isn't hooked to anything. That linkage is subject to sticking & hanging up, it's a fairly common problem w/those engines...
The changeover lever on the dash is the only thing you should have to manipulate, other than the Diesel throttle, when you switch over.

Clarification:
Actually, I kinda said it backwards-the butterflies close off the manifold when you switch to gas, & diverts the airflow thru the carb...when on diesel, the carb passage is bypassed & no air goes thru it...
Here's a page from an old IH brochure, if it's clear enough it shows the general idea...(thanks to MDiesel from the Redpower board for the page...)

When I throw the lever all the way, it does not mix fuels. Only half way in between is when both fuels mix.

Yeah, you still have a problem w/the changeover mechanism-shouldn't be a "halfway" point-it should be all or nothing-click in when you pull it back & trip w/a pretty loud "snap" when you push it into diesel position. The linkage is probably binding or gummed up...
If you get on Redpower, construction equipment forum, & do a search for "flipper thingy", you'll find a lot of discussion on this subject..

The linkage was froze up and I freed it up. I had to heat it a couple of times and put the P.B. B'LASTER to it. I am planning on taking it back apart and put anti-seize on it.
