Honda motor only runs when choked

I have a Honda GCV160 engine on a pressure washer. It starts on the first pull every time but will only run when fully choked. I changed the plug, ran SeaFoam in the gas, and pulled the carb and blew it out. Anyone have any suggestions. Does it need a carb kit?

Sorry for the delay.....

Most likely just needs to be cleaned as below;

Take the carb. off then tear it down, Spray carb. & choke cleaner with the straw through ALL ports, passages and jets then blow it out with compressed air if available then re-assemble, Clean the fuel tank and flush/replace the fuel hose.

Good Luck
