Did ya ever open up the main jet on the old carb as was suggested? If not, ya might wanna try reaming it out with a torch tip cleaner or jet drill. Use a loose fitting one and just roll the jet over the knurl/spirals. Ya don't wanna hog too much out.
Install it in yer new carb and see what happens.

You are running an air filter, right?
It ain't rocket science! far.
