It's an MTD 500 series mower with the B & S engine (158 cc).

I think this shows the style you have. Please let me know if yours is different. My best guess without the engine model info is that you have some version of a 10L502 Briggs engine on there.

This looks like it.
Something is still not correct with the lawn mower.
It will start but turn off quickly

How quick? Does it stay running if you operate the throttle linkage manually to overrde the governor? Does it restart right away?
