I purchased a power tug for my aircraft last year new.

Customer Question

Hello, I purchased a power tug for my aircraft last year new. Recently, the Briggs & Stratton Engine is running poorly and underpowered, almost dies when I use it. I have changed the spark plugs twice, opened up the carburetor and cleaned it, changed the oil and changed the fuel.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?
Customer: maybe 12 months old
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: no this is new in the past month
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Thats all I have for you now. I removed the air filter and it was spitting fuel out when running

Engine model number? Is it firing on both cylinders? If you remove one spark plug wire at a time, does it continue to run? If it dies, when wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing.
