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.

Some of those idle jets have a hole in the bottom that gets clogged. If you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't think it was. I use fishing line, in a round and round back and forth motion, along with soaking in carb cleaner.
Your getting particles in your fuel. Consider fuel line breakdown. Have your fuel lines been replaced in the last 10+ yrs?
