Question about Tecumseh Garden
Lawn mower fires once and then that's it. Sometimes backfires as if too far advance. Have checked everything, valves, clearance, carby, spark, flywheel key and all OK. Any ideas
Weak valve spring, stuck valve? Compression test may come out fine(60 plus lbs), but then when running, it may bind and stick, or not close in time consistently. I currently have one where we believe there is too much crank case pressure building up. When you turn it over, bubbles come out of the oil fill orifice. Guessing it's a plugged vent. Probably not your issue, but putting it out there.... Good luck.
