Quadrajet question Choke adjustment and more

I was working on the engine last night and noticed the choke never closes when the engine is cold, I tried adjusting it and it sluggishly closed. I tried adjusting for the open position with the engine running but the choke adjustment wouldn't turn until I shut off the engine. What's the best way to adjust the choke?

Also while I doing all this work in the engine compartment I have now (finally) noticed that the accelerator pump lever on the front of the carb is not clearing the bottom of the air cleaner. It's a drop base style and when fully seated causes the pump lever to be slightly pushed down. This cause the engine idle to drop as well. I think a 1/4 spacer would clear it but I can't seem to find one that thin.

Thanks all
