Have you tried cleaning the carb? If not try that first.

Have you put in a new spark plug? How's the spark, blue or yellowish orange? Is spark plug really wet with fuel possibly fouling out?

you're barking up the wrong tree, has nothing to do with spark or spark plug, it's a carburetor air/fuel mixture problem. first try to adjust the air/fuel mixture screw, this is a recessed brass in the thottle body, screw it all the way in, then turn it back out two full turns, start engine, then turn the mixture screw in and out until you obtain the highest possible rpm's, reset idle to appox 1500rpm's. if this doesn't work then best bet would be go to e-bay and buy a new carb, cost is about $20

lol
It doesn't take but a minute or two to check for fuel delivery to spark plug and condition of spark, usually in less time than finding a tach.
