Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you! Have you ran a cylinder test to see if one cylinder is all the problem? Loosen the spark plug wires and remove one at a time. If engine dies when either wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. That will tell where to concentrate the effort. Lets start there.
