what to do with a 317 that surges, have to keep the choke out for it to run. If I try to engage the hyd it dies. Suggestions?

I thought I should first drain the fuel tank, new fuel and fuel filter.

That's a start, & likely the carb needs taken apart & a good cleaning. No need to take carb off, just take the top off & blow circuits & bowl clean.
