1975 johnson 9.9 won't run without choke halfway out

75 johnson 9.9 won't start or run without the choke halfway out. Once running it will stay running if It's full throttle , but once you let off it will die. I've replaced the fuel pump, carb kit and plugs . Checked spark ( have plenty) checked compression have over 90 psi both cylinders. It even pees pretty good but I will soon be getting a water pump. Tanks clean new gas and new gas lines. I set the rich and lean all the way in then backed it out 1.5 turns. Over all it's a really clean motor no bare wires no damage . I also made sure the points were .020 ? Im sure it's probable the carb or something but it should be spotless . I even pulled the welsh plugs and cleaned thoroughly . Any help would be appreciated.
