I dont know what type of carb. you have but it needs cleaning and if it has diaphrams renew them. A repair shop will have these. Stephen

Briggs & Stratton 19hp opposed twin platinum engine keeps surging with the choke off. But with the choke about 3/4 closed runs great. Cleaned carburetor and adjusted it and governor a little. Same way

when this is running at it's best, look closely at the Levers as you move them slowly and see all that's affected by this movement look for bent Levers and if you can adjust-adjust. careful you don't break anything as you might try to bend back the Lever.., Don't adjust anything yet!, Pay close attention to adjustable ways that can be made on the Levers. And adjust accordingly. Make very small positions/turns and let engine settle into its new revolutions (Running) might take a few minutes.
Thanks, hope it helps.

I have a Briggs & Stratton 3.5HP Model 91212 type 1319E1 engine that I'm having trouble keeping running. Once it starts it will run about ten minutes, then die, and then is impossible to get re-started. Is this a carburetor problem, or possibly a coil?

some have fuel filter some do not , but it sounds like you have contaminated fuel and is is clogging up fuel line or carburetor,look into gas tank with a flash light and see if there are specs floating at bottom of the tank, if there are drain tank of all gas and remove tank and flush it out with brake cleaner, then disconnect both ends of fuel line and spray through tube into white paper towel until u see no dirt/debris. then remove air filter clean foam( soapy water, dry re-oil 10w30 is ok). remove carb from engine spray through main port with carb cleaner not brake cleaner, and use tube and spray through inlet tube while holding throttle wide open reassemble and it should run fine, if not u may need to disassemble carb if not comfortable with this then order new one usually under $100
