Home Depot has the plug you need for briggs 6.5hp engines. Don't worry about it being a Murray. Buy a Briggs 6.5hp plug.

This is not unusual at idle; there is a governor to limit maximum RPMs and this device isn't worth beans at an idle.
You may be able to carefully adjust the idle adjustment (see your manual or B&S website) to achieve a somewhat more even idle speed.

Find the B&S website and you should be able to download a parts or service manual.
Think it is briggsandstratton.com.
You will also need your type number (after the 92908).

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Do a compression check when cold, then again when hot. Sounds like when its hot your losing compression. If this is the case, it won't want to start when hot. Compression should be above 60 lbs. Thats where i would start. I hope this is of some help to you.
