I would suggest by tipping you have let oil come into the combustion chambers so I would suggest take the spark plugs out and let the engine turn over for 10 to 15 seconds to blow the access oil out
Replace the plug better a new one and you may have to run the starter to get it to fire as there will still be a residue of oil in there yet.
One should never tip a gasoline engine as this will cause problems in the end.

I hit rocks with my lawn mower on accident, and now it will run for a few seconds and turn off


This happens often. Sometimes your mower will start and run again and sometimes it won't. When it doesn't run it's because your timing is off, caused by a dented or sheared key.
To replace remove top cover to engine, and any other side attachments, this should expose the flywheel. Remove the top bolt and look between flywheel and top of crankshaft, you will see a small square notch. This is where the shear key is placed. Remove the flywheel and replace the shear key. Replace all parts in reverse order and you should be mowing again. GOOD LUCK.

I have a craftsman 5.5hp 3 in 1 Eager 1. Im having a problem starting it I've changed the spark plug and it still wont start any suggestions


Your carburetor probably needs a good cleaning. If it has the Tecumseh engine with the sideways carb on it, there is one thing to check quickly. Remove that brass bolt (main jet) on the bottom of the float bowl with a 1/2 inch wrench. Check all the tiny holes in it and make sure they're not clogged. You'll find one very very very tiny (I can barely even see it with my old eyes) hole right at the very top of the threads on that bolt and it gets clogged very easily with today's ethanol gasoline. If that gets clogged, your mower won't start. Also make note of the way the bowl is installed. It MUST be put on with the bevel side toward the hinge on your float or the float won't operate. Best of luck. I hope this helps.
