Any chance it could be that the non return valves in the priming bulb have stuck or its passing passing fuel back .,,or carb drain screws leaking or not nipped up .dont know about your particular engine but how about the fuel pump diaphram leaking a bit and getting into the crankcase

I get the engine started today - I noticed that you have to push the key back and for (choke) when starting - yesterday I did this manoeuvre before I turn the key to start

the choke lever out is not necessary.
