Craftsman Mower With Kohler Engine Will Not Start

My Craftsman 25 hp Kohler engine will not start. I replaced a clogged air filter and both spark plugs, one was blackened with no more gap. The fuel seems not to get vacuumed in. It putt putted itself out after driving along too steep a diagonal. Then I went to level, it started, cut for a few minutes, stalled on the high grass, then died.

So I tried the above. My friend said it has no suction from the carb area, but I don't know what that means. I am a 64 year old woman who learns from written manuals and theirs are no good.

The 23 hp Kohler V twin engine on a Craftsman GT 4000 riding mower will not start. It turns over and is getting gas and I replaced both spark plugs, what could be wrong ?
