90's-00's briggs 6HP engine stalling

so i built this project to save on gas.... a 6HP briggs and stratton powered skateboard. i built everything myself, and got this engine for it. engine fires right up first or second pull with the choke...but refuses to run with the choke open. i cleaned the carb thoroughly cleaning every jet and passageway with carb cleaner. put it together and stilll same thing. i checked and found that it is getting fuel to the carb. i can ride it with half choke..... but after a minute or so of riding it sputters, then dies. any ideas? this is very frustrating to me!

Hello and Welcome.Could you post the numbers off the engine,usually stamped into the shroud near the spark plug or on a sticker on the engine block.Knowing what type of carb you have will help someone here help you find the problem.
