SOURCE: LAWN MOWER WILL NOT START
The compression relief valve is not working. Pushing the engine past top dead center and turning the key works after a fashion. Keep the battery fully charged. This is a design/engineering fault in B&S engines which they cannot fix. It is in all of their engines. Most do not malfunction but those that do, do it all the time. I have had the compression relief valve replaced and the valve settings set to allow the valve to function (it uses the exhaust valve by holding it partially open while starting) but it still does not work properly.
Skip the below portion if you don't want to hear a negative view of B&S engines.
The engine problem resolved itself today (12-10-10) when it threw its rod into the cylinder wall. B&S engines power a huge number of the riding mowers in the US. It is difficult to escape them when buying a mower. Use it on more than a postage stamp yard and B&S will claim you abused it.
