Also sounds like the carb needs to be dissasembled and cleaned, do you have a in line fuel filter ?

The more i think about it the more i think it's a spark issue, what is the gap you have set the spark plug and ignition points to ?

On the spark plug set to .025 on the points set to .022, see if it helps.

If the engine dies when you tilt it up then i'd say you got some trash floating around in side the carb.
The gearcase of the till unit should have grease in it, and there should be 3 zerks, one on top of the case, one between the drive pulley and the case, and one down in the lower end.

Hey, im back for a min, heh, name is Trowel, Tractorholic is just because im always hevily under the influence of GTs and engines resulting in my lackadaisy eccentric personality.
Lauber1 is right on the nose with the coil problem, model 14, 19 and 23 all take the same coils and all have the same problem with coils going bad, first make absolutly shure that the carb is good to go and the plug/points gaps are right.

The engine is calling for fuel or spark, first start with the carb, remove the air-cleaner, the high speed screw (bottem of bowl) set at 2 turns out, load/idle speed screw set at 1 1/2 turns out, put air cleaner back on and fine-tune using the high speed screw eather in or out.
If that does not help then it's time for a magnatron coil, here are some links to help.
This is the chepest place to by the coil.
Hopefully you won't need the coil but if so then we are here to help, it is very easy to change out the coil and if your willing to spend the money you could also get the ignition points too.
If money is tight here is a convertion from KD Redd (RIP) you might be willing to try.
