Is there a fuel shutoff ? What is this ? Model number? Push mower? Remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start.

This is a 450 series engine the serial number is ***** put the gasoline in the cylinder block and a crank but will not stay running

The numbers do not identify the engine or the mower. Can yo remove the gas hose at the carburetor and see if there is gas coming from the tank? If not, look for a fuel shut off.
