+1 Had a Picco as well, and chased an air leak that had the same symptoms. Sealed the seam on the carb(plastic meets aluminum) and that fixed the problem.

If you sealed everything up and ruled out an air leak, It maybe an overly rich bottom end that would normally stall the engine but you compensated for an idle screw adjustment that is to high. reset all needles including the idle stop! The slide should only be open about 1mm when fully closed!

tank leak? fuel line? does the motor start off revving or is it about 1/2 tank in? he did say he tried a different carb with same results. i say cracked case or front bearing. take the motor out and clean it spotless on the outside, then run it a tank or so. remove tho motor and look for wet spots, start there. i just went through the same thing trying to find my backup motor for pnb3, came down to carb slider being worn and wobbly, new carb = no issues.
