Tecumseh 10hp engine only runs when choke is on, what's wrong?

I have a 10hp horizontal shaft Tecumseh engine that will only run with the choke closed. If I open it, it will die.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

The carb needs cleaning. Take the bowl off and clean it and the bolt that holds it on. There should be a very tiny hole near the end that is probably clogged, causing the problem.
