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.

Just a shot in the dark... low float level,or maybe a hole in the float?
Glenn brings up a good point. If you have never dumped out your tank and replaced the fuel pick up hose,this would be a good time to do it. Start at the source,if you haven't already.Also starting with fresh fuel would rule out freezing water causing your lean condition.
