What kind of shape is the flywheel key in? If sheared just slightly and using a points setup the engine will not fire properly. Turning the engine over by hand you may not produce enough spark. Is the flywheel to coil clearance set properly. I always used a business card to set this distance. Briggs once made and still probably does make an electronic kit to install on the old points motors to do away with the points. Good investment. Kind of eleminates the sheared flywheel key thing and actually allows you to advance the engine timing. Could also be a bad spark plug. I had a Honda engiene that would start and run fine for about a minute and then die. Wait a couple minutes and it would restart. I thought it was running out of fuel. The faster you ran the engine the quicker it would quit. After going over and over the carb I changed the plug. Problem solved. Plug was failing when it got hot.
