The need for full throttle usually indicates too much gas.Could be from a stuck float or too much choke.Check that the choke is closing and opening as it is supposed to.If the primer bulb refuses to get hard it can be an indication of a float problem.Sometimes tapping carefully on the carb near where the gas line goes in might pop a stuck float loose.
