Hello, sounds like a carb problem. You may have to give it a quick cleaning. Clamp the fuel line, have a rag handy. Loosen the bolt that holds the carb bowl on to drain the fuel. When empty remove the brass bolt, it is the main jet and could be clogged. Poke a wire (bared bread twister)he center and thru the holes in the side. Re assemble and test.

I WILL CHANGE FUEL FILTER , BUT THIS CARB. DOESN'T HAVE A DRAIN OR VALVE. IT HAS A WIRE COMING OUT OF THE BOWL. DWAYNE

The wire is a fuel solenoid.You loosen the solenoid to drain the carb bowl.I can send a shop manual that covers your engine and many others See section 4 -fuel systems and carburetion. http://1drv.ms/1KGsSBZ
