Motor turns when spark plug is out, starter works, gas good, but has plenty of spark, when plug is added it stalls. Why?

If by 'stalls' you mean it wont turn over with the spark plug in, it is common in B&S engines for the valves to go out of adjustment. When this happens it can make it very hard for the engine to turn over and can make it hard for it to crank without assistance. A valve adjustment may fix this. it may also be a weak battery that isn't strong enough, or a bad solenoid that isn't letting enough juice through, or weak connections/bad battery wires.

I prime it; and it starts right up. Then, it stalls out, after a second ot two. Its a new lawn mower; and there is plenty gas in it.

Check your gas can. If you put dirty fuel in it, it will block the jets in the carburetor, preventing the engine from getting enough fuel. If you have a dirty gas can, you now will need to clean the carburetor jet.

My mower will run for about 30 minutes then die and then have to wait for awhile and process starts all over. i have changed oil, spark plug, plug wire and coil, fuel filter, air filter and screen,...

Try this.
When the mower is about to die, loosen the gas cap.
My mower gas cap vent holes plugged up and kept stalling the mower.
If it works, drill out the vent holes.

Keeps stalling

Check spark plug if it is the right TYPE for your mower. There are many different types. Spark plug could be dirty or cracked as well.

Mower runs for about 20 minutes cuts off. Acks

Make sure that the gas cap is allowing air to enter through the small hole. If not, a vacuum will build up and the engine can't get gas. You could try running it with the gas cap on loosely. If that doesn't fix it, the next time it stalls quickly remove the spark plug and see if it is wet. If it is, you will know it's an electrical problem.

The engine stalls

you may have trash in the gas tank. empty it nad wash it out real good make sure the gas you use is fresh the vibration could be the blade ; or it could be that when the rock was hit it bent the shaft and that would cause vibration also. remove the spark plug and rotate the blade with your hand, you should be able to tell ifi the shaft is bent or not if not try putting a new blade on
