Twin cylinder Briggs engine? When engine is cold, turn key on and off, and listen for the fuel solenoid in the carburetor to click open. Learn what it sounds like, then when engine quits, turnkey on and off and listen for the lick. No click, no fuel. With the Briggs twin, it is not likley that it is loosing spark, but fuel.
