I assume that's an L120?

Briggs OHV engines need to have the valves properly adjusted for the compression release to function properly.

There are numerous threads on that exact problem if you just scroll down a few threads/pages.

Walt Conner has a procedure that HE will send you if YOU email him, telling him what you want.
Look for his address in the mentioned threads.
