This must have the briggs engine in it. When the valve lash is not correct it will just crank the engine over to the compression stroke. You will need to have the valve lash set and then it should crank over normal. There is an easy spin built into the engine and if the valve lash is not correct it doesn't work. Valve lash needs to be set at .004 with piston at top dead center on compression stroke.
