Good day and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to help you with your problem today. I'd read the plug to see if it's rich or lean. Revving the engine to keep it running indicates a jetting issue or valve clearance issue. Reading the plug will tell you if it is rich or lean & you can adjust from there. Just because the carb was rebuilt does not mean that it does not need adjusted to run right on your machine.
