I have a Honda HRT216SDA mower that I am having a problem with; that I
hope someone can help solve.
It starts fine but after about 30 seconds it quits. It seems like it
runs out of gas. If I let it sit dor a miniute or two it will start
again but run no more that ~30 seconds.
The gas is clean. The float in the carburetor is not stuck, carburetor
is clean. All linkages look fine.
Anything else I can check?

I have a second mower that I cut my grass with and the Honda in just
bugging me so mutch I just do not want to give up!
Chuckle. I, and probably most of the regulars on this group, have BTDT
multiple times. Fighting with something long past the point of economic
and time management sense, just because it pissed us off, and we will
not cry Uncle.
Check the air filter.
The one on my Honda became oil-clogged after my daughter tipped the
mower (not running) on its WRONG side for cleaning. The mower exhibited
symptoms similar to what you describe until I replaced the air filter.
