It only runs of I choke it all the way but it coughs and stutters and dies eventually.
Thinking I might just buy a new carb for it. It is the original I believe. Maybe cheaper to just buy a new Briggs carb?

QT16 should have a 16hp Onan BF MS. Please post a Picture of the engine.
New carbs for an Onan are EXPENCIVE if you can find them. $600+ from SearsPartsDirect https://www.searspar...&brandName=ONAN
Sounds like your fuel pump needs rebuilt. The old Briggs opposed twins act the same when the fuel pump Diaphragm gets hard. The rubber parts in the fuel pumps either get rock hard or fall apart.
This carb kit has the fuel pump rebuild kit with it. Pretty good deal @ $70. SearsPartsDirect list price is $130 + shipping for the same kit.

My Onan had the same problem when I got it. Cleaned the carb and put an after market electric fuel pump on it for about $10. Put a fuel shut off valve right at the carb. Problem solved.

I just notice a problem with my Wheel Horse 312 H having to run with the choke pulled out.
The choke conduit slipped in the clamp and the choke handle/cable had to be pulled out about 1/2" for the choke to actually be opened!
Adjusted the cable and all is well!
