Did you pull plug out to see if it was flooding?Next loosen gas cap to see if it is vapor locked caused by pluggeg cas cap vent hole.

Thanks for replying, I have and plug is ok, I have taken carb apart, jets are ok, same with the floats. I think its something deeper, maybe electrical. Was hoping someone might have a direction to look into further

I usually do one step at a time then worry about worse things.

Does it die when on flat ground or on an incline?

It dies on both, but it is definelty worse on an incline. But, it starts right back up no problem. It gets worse the longer it runs as well

Since it's worse on an incline it makes me think it's a fuel problem. Have you pulled the supply line to the carb to see if there is a good flow of gas?
