Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! This is twin cylinder Briggs engine. Run a cylinder balance test. Loosen the spark plug wires. then with engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time. If engine dies when one wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. Check it for spark. and compression. If it has spark and compression,check the valves ,you may have a bent or broken pushrod.
