When you put your hand over the carb intake you are in essence acting as a giant choke. If it starts with your hand over the intake I think you are not getting enough fuel flow. I don't know your engine and need model numbers and what not to look up what you have but I doubt your choke is bad. After it starts does it keep running as normal?
