Lawn tractor quit while mowing

My Murray with a Briggs and Stratton 16 HP just died in the middle of mowing. Cranking did not restart. I left it overnight, and tried a cold start. It cranked, and almost caught, coughing once, but did not start. I checked the air filter, which seems clean. There seems to be fuel in the line and fuel filter which has a clear bulb.

Any suggestions?

With the air cleaner off, you can spray carb choke cleaner in the carb and see if it will start. Check your spark plug for fouling. If it is carboned up or you have not replaced it yet this year, try a new plug. LOL
