Ok, Matt, I'll give it a try.  The choke needs to be properly adjusted
regardless, and your procedure makes perfect sense.  Does this explain why
the motor initially starts strong and then just accelerates until I shut it

Here's your problem!

With air cleaner off......engine cold.....holding throttle slightly

Turn  choke cover in both directions....until you get the feel / sight of
the butterfly moving

Adjust so it closes to withing 1/8"......

Scenario now......   choke is too far closed......rich......engine starts
but starved for air. [ no choke pulloff]   as the choke warms / opens   idle
picks up.....
