12.5hp mtd starts but dies

I was having problems starting my riding lawn mower. I checked out this forum and thought it may be the carb. I took the carb off and checked and it seemed ok. I reinstalled the carb and it still wouldn't start . I then changed the spark plug tried to start and it started up but after about a 20 secs it died. I have tried repeatedly but does the same thing. I have owned this for several years so I know the characteristics of starting this unit. Any thoughts.

Hello Billham!

What kind of engine is on it? Check for spark when it dies, and let us know what you find.
