8HP Tecumseh HMSK80 Engine Will Not Idle

I have a tecumseh 8hp hmsk80 that i have previously rebuilt i put new pistion rings in it and all new seals i have also replaced the breather element to and when the time came to put it all back together i started it up and it ran but died it ran grate before i took it apart but now it dont idle it will run grate at full throttle but when i put it back to idle it will run for about 2 seconds then it will just stall but the thing is it will idle fine with choke on all the way after a while of fittling with the ajusment scerws with almost not luck i desided to buy a carb rebuild kit and i cleaned everything and put all new parts in it and still does the samething what should i do???

Sounds like the carb needs a good cleaning. There is a restriction somewhere that needs to be cleared.
