"Not exactly," 8gv!

The "choke" (starting enricher) has nothing to do with the diaphragm; rather, when ON, the enricher plunger is withdrawn from its orifice in the carb body, permitting fuel to flow; simultaneously, a proximate air passage is opened. Acting as a "mini-carburetor," the consequent fuel-rich mixture is admitted directly into the carburetor venturi, without involving the diaphragm at all.

A metal "choke" cable cap is available from Stead Engineering. A good primer on a carb very similar to your CVK34 can be found here:
