    Could be the carb.....adjust the slow and fast screws.....turn both screws all the way in(not too tight just stop wen there's some resistance) and turn both out about 1.1/2 one and a half turn out and adjust to run as u perfer

    That sounds like it is going to be a fuel delivery problem...
    If it were an ignition problem , it would die with the application of choke and a poor spark...

    Check fuel delivery...
    is there a fuel pump on this... fuel filter... ?? KennyV
