Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower Won't Stay Running

HI,
MY old Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower Won't Stay Running
I replaced the spark plug, oil, gas, air filter,and carb gasket & diaphragm. Starts easily then smokes thru muffler; very strong sputtering then dies. engine runs low for a few seconds- doesnt respond to any power increase
thanx in advance

Sounds like there is still a carb problem.

Post the engine model, type and code usually stamped in the metal shroud just above the spark plug, so we know what you have. Have a good one. Geo
