Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Have you ran a cylinder test? Loosen the spark plug wires, and with engine idling, remove one wire at a time, if engine dies when either wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing! If that is the case check it for spark and compression. You may have a twin engine only running on one cylinder!
