I recently picked up 1980 john deere spitfire. It starts and runs fine but if I let off the throttle it dies. also I have to use the choke to get it started even if its warm. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Slide or Butterfly carb?
If Butterfly replace it with Mikuni 34VM slide. If VM 34 You need to adjust the slide with the idle adjustment screw located on the rt hand side of the carb if you are standing in front of the sled
Good info and additional help over at:
