Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. I would like to try to help you with your mower. When you say turn over can you still pull the rope or is it frozen ?

Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 6 months ago.

Try removing the spark plug and see if it pulls over that way

Ok , check the oil is it thin or smell like gas ? . If you feel like your flooding it remove the plug and pull the rope 3 to 5 times, this will clear the cylinder.
