Briggs single cylinder engine? Hard to crank, will not make full circle when trying to crank?

What is compression? If over 100 psi the compression release id not working.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

You can try adjusting the valves to about .004 inch, but if that does not help, the compression release is likely bad, and the camshaft with the spring loaded release will need to be replaced!
