McCulloch chainsaw wont stay running!

I have a McCulloch se 2000 silver eagle chainsaw that will start but idles real high and clonks out! If i open the choke it instantly shuts off!
I changed the plug, put new fuel in, replaced the fuel pickup filter, cleaned the fuel lines, made udjustments to the carb, and replaced the primer bulb!
Someone told me it may be the diaphram!
I Have to figure this out because i have been posponing a job for a week now because a hand saw is out of the question!

It does sound like the carburetor needs to be cleaned and serviced. Take it apart and see. Probably will need diaphragms and gaskets, inlet screen, etc... if it has been sitting up unused for a long time.
