Solex Problems

Whilst driving down the M25 last week my carb decided to quite literally dump fuel... well.... everywhere.

 

I pulled over and took a look and see fuel pouring from the carb arrowed in pic below-

I pulled apart the carb and i believe the floats have gone a pit pourous and have sunk and just let fuel constantly flow in. Im not 100% so this is why i ask.

 

Ive taken a pic of where i believe the fuel has come from, some kind of overflow?-

Also one more thing, looking at this choke mechanism is there something missing? There seems to be some kind of diaphram that is un-operated?

Any help, greatly recieved.

 

Cheers
