My recommendation would be a complete rebuild. The fuel that was left in the carb has dried up and plugged many critical circuits internally.
The least of your troubles is that squirter. But to remove the choke, since rarely is a choke left on in any racing application, you first pull the choke butterfly out of the shaft. If there are screws holding it to the shaft, remove them.
The choke linkage arm that hooks to the shaft will need to be removed from the shaft (and its hole going down thru the side of the carb). Simplest way is to bend the tab on the choke shaft slightly to unhook the linkage. Then slide the shaft out.
This will allow better access to the squirter area in the carb. Make SURE the little squirter check valve needle is still down inside where the ***** goes.
Also, the hole in the side of the carb where you removed the choke linkage arm will need to be closed off to keep unfiltered air and dirt out.
Some just plug it with silicone, but there is a plate made to close it off neatly.

Hope that helps, and if you'd like further assistance in rebuilding your carb, feel free to give me a shout.
