A briggs and stratton 450 series 148cc on a moter mower.The engine fires up after priming then dies.The air filter is fine so is the spark plug,could it be the two small springs behind the carbie?

More than likely, it is the main jet is partially clogged. That is the brass bolt that holds the float bowl onto the body of the carburetor. Remove this bolt and washer and clean it well. Use no metal objects to clean it.. Make sure the bottom hole and the side holes near the top are clean and clear.Carb/choke aerosol spray should do the job here. Use no metal wires or scrapers on the jet. Clean until shiny, reinstall and try starting the machine.

My riding lawnmower will only stay on momentary. Gas is clean and spark plug is clean? The gas filter did have some water? What else can I check?

Check the brass bolt (clean it thoroughly) that holds the float bowl on the carburetor. It is the Main Jet of the carburetor also and without a fuel filter and/or letting fuel evaporate in it causes the very small holes in it's bottom and sides to clog. Use no metal objects when cleaning/scraping. Wood or plastic only. You don't want to change the precise diameter of the fuel metering holes inside the jet. Clean it till it is shiny and reinstall.

The jet in the bottom of the carburetor is clogged up. The engine will prime but after that fuel is burned off, the engine stops. The jet is not allowing fuel to be sucked into the engine.
