Check for an ignition system problem on that side of the engine such as fouled spark plugs, burned spark plug wires etc.
Also check that the carburetor is supplying fuel to that side of the engine. (Adjust carb jets which feed fuel to that side of the engine).
Is your carb. A one barrel or a two barrel?
Does the engine idle smoothly?
