Compression release binding?
I have a Toro 20045 with a Briggs 12H800 series 6 HP Quantum engine. It runs just fine (new synthetic oil,plug & filter) except the electric starter motor binds at the compression release before it cranks the engine.Turning the flywheel by hand with the brake off requires a good push to get it past the release - then it turns freely until the next release cycle. I thought the release feature was supposed to make starting easier. Is there something that can be done to get this to turn more easily?
