The idle jet needs to be adjusted out (to enrichen) the idle circuit more gas that's what your doing when you pull the choke on if you go to rich you'll see black smoke from the exhaust when you throttle up., What engine and carb?

I could be either your idle circuit in the carb is blocked or you may have an air leak. Take some Carb cleaner and with the engine running spray the cleaner around the carb flanges and the intake manifold. If the engine changes there is a leak there. If you don't find a leak then there is a very good chance the idle circuit is partially blocked.

Ok. So would it be a good idea and safe assumption to go ahead and order a carb rebuild kit?
In a word-> Yes.
The reason it falls on it's face is that the plate opens and a restriction of fuel in the idle circuit or a low fuel level in the bowl causes the addition of fuel supplied with the air to the engine to drop. If the air and fuel aren't mixed properly all bets are off.. Today's engines are designed to run on the lean side in the first place due to the tree huggers and ozone police so they are fouled up with the slightest bit of blockage..
Install a kit with a thorough clean-out of the idle jet circuit.. Good luck!

This is a 1960's engine so it doesn't run lean, before you buy an OH kit clean the carb good it very possible a partially clog passage way in the idle circuit, or as posted could be an air leak.
here's a good link to the carb

Hi they are not complicated but can leak at the emulsion tube, read the link provided before trying to dissemble the carb the emulsion tube must be removed before splitting the 2 halves when removing the emulsion tube make sure you have a good fitting screwdriver not so big it touches the threads but big enough so as to not damage the screw slot.
I would first remove the idle jet and using the straw with carb cleaner spray into the jet screw hole cleaner should come out in the throttle pate area of the carb.

Where's the throttle plate?
In the carb!

Go to the link I provided look at picture #6 that's the top of the carb what you see in the center of the bore is the throttle plate it is connected to the gov arm via a rod.
