    My lawn mower has a 16.5 Brigg & stration engine.

    it will run for 2-3 sec and then putt's 1 or2 times and then it starts again

    Yep, sounds like it's not getting gas. I would recommend taking the carb apart, removing all gaskets, rubber and plastic parts and soaking the carb in carb cleaner overnight. Before reassembly, flush out all orifices with carb cleaner and compressed air and re assemble. That has always worked for me.
