Hi amd welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
One of the things that can cause this problem is a low oil level sensor that is dirty of has beeen activated from an actual low oil level. Check the oil level to make sure it is full. Check spark... with crankcase fully serviced. Still no spark disconnect ONE wire from the low oil level sensor and test spark.
After this you will be looking at the black wire from the magneto to the ignition switch or throttle control plate. (FYI it also goes to the low oil level sensor.... start looking for shorts in the wire!) A bad magneto or igniton unit will also cause this sympton.
Service manual OHV:
Either way there is most likely a ground on the magneto primary wire or the magneto itself has failed. Do not change the magneto until your sure there are not any grounds on the wire leading to the magneto.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Stills sounds like a carb problem to me. Did you make sure all the jets were clean and open? Some of these carbs have a main jet adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb, if yours does try opening it up a 1/4 turn at a time to richen the fuel mixture until it runs properly.
