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!

but carb may not be giving enough gas to engine cylinder. it may need new carb gaskets or carb screws adjusted.
