Question about Garden
Briggs and Stratton 287707 engine, when I turn the key there is a very loud buzzing noise and no movement from the engine. This is not the clicking noise from a dead battery...very different. Anyone have any clues?
Something is froze up. Try rotating the engine "key off" to see if it is jammed. Then remove engine cover to access the starter motor.
It should spin freely. If there is no apparent problem remove the flywheel and inspect the shaft key and magneto settings. If you need more repost.

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

There are no timing marks, timing is correct when the flywheel key is in place, the flywheel is properly torqued and the air gap for the magneto is properly set

I dont know exactly what this is called on a tractor but if it has electric ignition control -then check the ignition module it is probably bad also i dont know where its located but i feel sure thats the problem .
