If you haven't done it already, I would take apart the carb and clean it. It sounds like a dirty carb.

I know this may be annoying, but have you tried to adjust the Low speed needle valve on the carb? If it is to lean meaning, closed the only way it can pull fuel in is to increase the vacuum by closing the choke, which then gives it too much fuel and not enough air. Try turning it a 1/2-3/4 turn out/ counter clockwise and see if it helps
