for some reason the server at empart is down and i cant access any breakdowns, and your link does not work either. so i'm gonna give my best guess here for now.
if that gasket is indeed missing, that would cause you to have a problem. i've never seen a walbro carb come without the gasket, and without it, it would cause the engine to flood rather than need to be run with the choke. so, chances are the gasket is there, its just stuck to the diaphragm. they always get stuck together. look at it very closely.
but if your talking about the fuel pump side of the carb, that would cause a lean situation as the flaps on the diaphragm would not have room to open up. but again i've never seen a walbro come without that gasket either. and these two parts do stick together as well.
when you say metering diaphragm, i'm assuming your talking about the diaphragm under the cover with 4 small screws. and once i can access breakdowns again, i can answer this more logically and factual.

odd. the breakdowns for that engine show it using a float type carb.

check the diaphragm closely to be sure the gasket is not stuck to it.

I took it apart again and there is only the rubber diaphragm between the carb body and the cover. This particular carb is for an ice auger motor. I don't know if that makes it unique. Do you think that the gasket could be the problem?

I couldn't get to your link. Maybe there's a typo like mine.
