Throw a new spark plug in. Also, look inside the tank and make sure the pickup tube for the carb is still on there, and you may need to take it off and clean it. Theres a screen on the end and they get clogged up a lot. Ive seen it multiple times with all the ones weve ran.

you probably need points and condenser, and a carb rebuild. The points and condenser are 12 bucks at fram and fleet, and the carb rebuild kit is about five at farm and fleet also. The combination should make it run like brand new. I had a minibike with a 5 horse briggs, comp cam and valves, cut head, and it ripped! it was a wheelie machine.
