Electric carb cover; electric choke cover fell off

Go ahead and shake your heads now but I need some carb education. Have a 83 CJ7 w/ in-line 6. Bought this a few months ago and everything was fine until the water pump went out. No big deal I thought. While fixing that problem (still dealing with air in the system I believe, but we will get to that ), I noticed the electric choke cover laying on the valve cover. The day before the water pump went out I noticed that the idle was high. Seems the cover was held in place by a pop rivet (doubt thats right) and a screw that did not thread in. I have no idea the make of the carb but looking around I believe it to be a OEM rebuild. What size are the screws for the cover ? How much tension should be on the spring ? Thanks
