why does my lawn mower engine start fine but quickly stutter and die, even with plenty of gas in the tank?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I own a Sears Craftsman 3.5 hp 20" rotary mower, Model #917.380310.
Mower starts up and runs fine for awhile, but then starts to sputter and will die. If I hit the choke balloon a few times it'll start right up again, run for a few minutes -- and die.
Hoping it was something easy, I pulled the spark plug, cleaned and gapped it and replaced it, but the problem persists.
I'm thinking maybe a clogged fuel line?
Mower's got plenty of gas.
