briggs 16 hp wont start

The tractor ran yesterday and I changed the sparkplugs and the fuel filter. It ran for a little time after this but then it quit, and now it wont start. It turns over, and it has good spark. Is it a fuel problem or what.

Could be a valve issue, or an insufficient ignition (spark) issue, or a fuel starvation issue. Post back with the engine's model, type and code numbers so we know, specifically, what engine you have. Certain engines have specific areas of concern and if we know what you have we can better help you diagnose your trouble.
