John Deere 322 only runs with choke on

I have a John Deere 322 that only runs with choke on. Compression is good (160 PSI), has good spark, new plugs. I had carb apart twice and gave a good cleaning. And still runs decent with choke all the way and as soon as taking choke off it dies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just had this problem a few months ago on my 322. The answer was to remove the slow idle jet and clean it out as Chuck mentions above. Mine was clogged with some sediment inside at the bottom. Use a carb cleaner with the small straw attached.
