15.5 hp briggs wont stay running

I have an older riding mower with a 15.5 hp engine that started running bad out of nowhere. Tried to start it, and it just barely runs, when I can crank it. I replaced the spark plug and fuel filter and checked the coil. Any suggestions.

RE: 15.5 hp briggs wont stay running

if you post the Model & Type of the engine, one can determine WHICH 15.5hp Briggs it is out of the dozens of possibilities.

Is the choke plate opening fully?
What happens if you remove the air filter?
Is the gas in it old?
