there is hose coming from your valve cover to pump. check it for cracks. one of your gaskets at the air filter housing to carb or carb to black block or block to intake maybe leaking. fuel shut off solenoid could be going bad. choke cable adjustment. there is crank case breather under air filter housing with a s shaped hose coming from it to air filter housing make sure it is not loose. i have an engine at work that did =the same thing. i work at a golf course. i am the mechanic. i changed the hose from valve cover to pump and it cured that problem

It appears that you have a slight mis-adjustment in the idle speed and idle mixture. To adjust setup, start with at least a half tank of fuel, and have engine at operating temperature (That is warm but not overly Hot). The Briggs & Stratton Website manuals section should show the locations of the adjusting screws if you are not sure of them.
To adjust idle speed set Throttle control to minimum and adjust screw on throttle butterfly to maintain a good idle speed. To adjust idle mixture, screw in idle mixture screw (Lean) until motor falters and then screw out (Rich) until it falters again. Correct setting is the halfway point of these two positions. You may have to re-adjust idle speed again and also the mixture to get best running.
If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a B & S dealer.

it sounds like a fuel starvation problem it is very possible theres a blocked vent in the carb. the carb will probably will need rebuilding not very difficult
