Are you sure the plug wires are on the proper cylinder, there's numbers on the wires, look closely. Maybe a vacuum leak, since it only runs on full choke. There is vacuum ports on each cylinder, just like the one the vacuum operated petcock works from, make sure they're still plugged.

Running on choke only is a sure sign carbs are clogged. .phase separation starts as early as 3 months so sitting over the winter yeah I could believe that they can clog up ..you said you clean them are you sure they're clean hundred percent?
