DC Light Plants Delcolighy 752 Choke Solenoid Question.

Going through my 752 as part of a rebuild and things are going well. Hard part is done (Piston and valves). Seems like everything is there, and Intact on the electric side, but it looks to me like there is a flap or stopper missing from the choke solenoid. Is there a exploded service diagram anywhere?
I can easily make a stack of leather to put on the shaft if needed, but i'd like to know what it's supposed to look like when done.

Figured it out. These things are elegantly simple. The "choke" just directs full flow of intake through the head-mounted reed-valve choke by closing off the 3 or 4 small holes in the bottom of the housing. It is probably mostly important for running on kerosene.
