It sounds like you are not getting enough fuel to the carburetor. This engine is very bad about the float valve sticking. I would remove the bowl from the bottom of the carburetor and see if you have fuel coming into the carburetor. As you loosen the nut or bolt that holds the bowl on fuel will leak from it
