Briggs & Stratton Getting Spark & Fuel - Won't Start
I have a B&S 13.5 Horsepower Model: 313777 I've been working on this thing for days. Had the cap fall off the valve somehow and put it back on and adjusted the valves. It is getting fire and fuel, but it won't even act like it's going to start. If I pull the choke on the cold engine it gives too much gas and starts popping through the exhaust while cranking. Holds 80 lbs of air for at least thirty minutes - didn't check any longer, but it wasn't leaking a whiff of air for that time. I'm getting ready to go check again, but I've been getting no compression while cranking before I adjusted the valves. Pretty sure I got the adjustment correct following the Briggs service manual, 1/4" past TDC compression stroke. Never adjusted valves on small engine before, so I could be getting this wrong. Any ideas on what could be wrong?
