I would start with a good carb cleaning and adjustment if possible, clean or replace the air filter, make sure the gasket is not leaking and a good once over.  That should hopefully correct the issue.  Check your fuel tank for any type of crud and the fuel line for junk or deterioration so you don't re-clog the carb.  Also check to see if it has a fuel filter and replace if it does.

Quick question,
I just bought a 1996 cub cadet yard bug with a 8.5 briggs for my cabin, starts great runs great but only when full throttle, Move throttle back and it quits, I assume just a simple carb cleaning for dirty jets??
Thanks
