You have to replace that needle. While the tip "looks", it's not soft like it was 42 years ago.

These parts do not last forever and get dry from age and gasoline.

See Treats for a rebuild kit, until its rebuilt you'll never get it to run right.

You should replace the plastic intake piece too so you know you don't have any air leaks. This part also gets dry and develops cracks due to age.
