    I have a 25 HP B&S V-twin. It will start, run for about 60 seconds, then quit. I've replaced plugs, fuel pump, vacuum hose to fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel lines. I took the carb apart and cleaned it. Air filter OK. Fresh gas in tank. Good spark. I'm at a loss. Please help!

    When it shuts down will it start right back up ? Have you tried to apply choke when it goes to shut down ? Does it still have spark after it shuts down ? Read the third thread down from the top in this forum then post some numbers.
