Question about Mtd Garden
16hp tecumsa engine wont turn over with spark plug in. ive replaced battery starter and selonoid. what could make it have too much compression?
Check the "shear" pin & replace. Sounds like engine is out of timing. Easy fix

Hi Peter, check the valve clearances. There is a decompressor on the camshaft that won't work if the valve clearances are to great or a rocker post is loose. Regards Phil.

If i understand you right the little square piece is the solenoid, and it should be replaced if it is making a buzzing noise

Two things come to mind. If the plug base is too deep it could bottom out on the piston, and if the cam/shaft timing is off by a tooth or more it could also cause this problem. Check it out.
