Are you trying to start the machine without sitting on it? There may be a kill switch under the operator's seat that won't let the engine start without the operator sitting on the seat.

Starter kicks in but wont turn engine acts like too much compression,battery is fully charged

Very can be if it is an OHV engine that either the valves are needing adjusting or the decompressor has failed.

Most 4 cycle small mower engines have decompressors to help with the starting, These are only active at start-up and does not effect normal engine compression when running.

I have a troybilt lawn mower has a 17.5 briggs in it has ohv my question is how to check to make sure its still in time

You can do a quick check, bring the piston up to top dead centre non compression stroke, at this point the exhaust and inlet valve should be rocking if not the valve timing is out.

13.5 OHV B&S won't stay running, blows gas out carb.

Sounds like you have a blown valve. I'm assuming this is a 4 stroke motor, if it was 2 stroke then it would be the reed valves. But either way it's the valves.... unfortunately that will require a mechanic :(
