Have you tried adjusting the high speed needle on the carb? If that doesn't help then a carb rebuild may be in order.

 

But I would make sure your points are clean and gapped correctly, and make sure the plug looks good. before a carb rebuild.

Float level.

 

That could be, but the problem (if it is carburetor) is that it is running too lean.  Does it start well?

 

It could very well be that the points are adjusted wrong, too.

I would give it a little more open on the high speed jet and check the points.

I would re-adjust the carb, and try gapping the points to the correct gap. Or just buy new points and condencer. Good luck. Ian

Since it does rev up, sounds like a carb issue (clean, float level, etc.)

Try adding a small amount of choke before trying to rev up - help identify if it's a gas supply issue.

 

A common problem with the K161 internal coil is a partial short to ground.  While not running, remove the sparkplug wire and check the resistance between the plug wire and ground.  Should be about 7K ohms (going by memory - correct me if I'm wrong).

Sounds every one has the right idea. Carb adjustment would be the first easy step. Seems like you are possible getting to much fuel. Does the emgine start fine after the stall or does it need to set for a minute? If its a excessive fuel issue then the engine should flood and not start. If it starts right right up then it could very well be the points. Was this an issue that just suddenly happened? I'm jealous I want a cub original.
