Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible. I will return in under 5 minutes
spray some carb cleaner or starting fluid into the intake. see if the engine will start
okay, I understand now. since the engine was stuck in the wide open position for a period of time, the first thing I would do is check the valves and push rods of the engine. It is possible the valve ran too fast and are now not set correctly or it may have bent a push rod since it doesn't want to turn over when under compression.
most of these machines came 17.5hp Briggs engine and both intake and exhaust valves should be set at 0.005
Let me know if you need anything further please.
