That's the way these engines are.
Without actually being there, we are all guessing at the probable cause from your description.
The same symptom can be caused by different faults.
It's often a matter of trial and error until you get it right.
Glad you got it solved!

One more thing to check -- make sure that the pressure nipple on the muffler is not blocked by crud. Black gunk sometimes builds up inside the muffler and occasionally plugs the pressure nipple. That is the tank vent as well as a pressure source -- it will kill the engine after a minute or so of running.
