18 hp briggs will run for a little while then die. Checked coil and new gas


Hi,
It's possible that you have condensation built up in your carburator. Tiny droplets can deny gas to the cylinders. Since you put in new gas and I assume you are getting spark, drop the bowl on the carburator and check for this culprit. Could be a quick fix.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
