T37Chef will become famous soon enough
Its probably the carburetor which is easily disassembled and clean using a Carb cleaner. You will be surprised just how easy it is.

I have the same engine, it was stored for a couple years and had problems running smooth. I took apart the Carb and cleaned it and of will start on the first pull and runs smooth as ever.

The fuel is the problem, not the engine
