Only 3 things are needed for an engine to run, compression, fuel and spark. You obviously have all 3 as it runs, therefore as it won't rev up. I am going to assume that it ran correctly before and has just started to have this problem. I would start by checking the ignition timing and if that is okay then it sounds like the carbs need cleaning. you could try adding some sea foam to the gas tank and try to run it through the carbs to see if it gets better, but it will be difficult to do if you can only idle the engine. Check your points and ignition time first.
