Does it have a fuel pump? My 15 hp Nissan was doing that and it turned out to be the fuel pump, Which is a rubber sheet with one side being connected to the crankcase (making it flutter as the engine runs) and the other side having a set of one way valves. There was a leak around the sheet and it wasn't sealed to the crankcase and didn't flutter. Took it apart put some gasket sealer around the edge, put it back together, and boom it worked.
