Hello. My name is Tan.
2 things to check when engine act like it wants to die pull the choke out momentarily. Does it continue to run?
If no change squeeze the primer bulb. Does it continue to run?
Finally what do you have the idle jet adjusted to turns out from lightly seated?
Did you do any of the checks I ask you to do?
For me to tell you what is wrong with your engine you have to follow the troubleshooting procedure. Anything else you tell me is useless.
Ok. Were any of the reeds broken when you removed them?
Tight is fine. They just don't want more than .010 space.
You have a fuel issue these engines are very hard to get set right at idle.
Post back when you get it reassembled and we can get you going.
