I doubt it about weak spring, valves may need adjusting. use a .006 feeler gage on intake and exhaust both. with 1 tappet all the way down check the one thats up.

SOURCE: My 24 hp intek is only running on one cylinder

Perform a compression test. As these engine age they are notorious for getting carbon under the exhaust valve heat in the seat area. What happens is you get a tiny piece of carbon under the head.... the valve cycles with the cylinder but does not close. Actually it can be either the intake or the exhaust valve but more often that not it is the exhaust valve that is the culprit. Worst case you hand lap the valve to the valve seat with grinding compound.

Another thing it can be is a hole in the piston. (VERY rare)

Both would cause a compression test to fail. You don't even need a pressure gauge. You can sacrifice a small paint brush handle and compare the good cylinder to the bad one by the amount of pressure you get but holding the brush gently in the spark plug hole. Just make sure your back yard pressure checker (paint brush handle) does not protrude into the cylinder so far that it can be hit by the piston. I am thinking you will have one very strong cylinder and one very weak cylinder. It is not a hard fix... it is a matter of making sure the valves seat properly on the bad cylinder. Now if the piston has a hole in it... now you talking much more work. I may be able to find a service manual for you if you discover there is a hole in the piston. Not sure if the service manual will be free or a purchase item because I have not looked yet.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How tocheck timing onbriggs stratton model44577

The timing is fixed, if you suspect the timing is off the only adjustments available are the .030 clearance from pickup to flywheel and the shear Key that positions the flywheel on the crankshaft. You would also want to make sure your valve clearance is .030 as well, the issue sounds like a valve leaking, a dead cylinder or mal adjusted valve clearance causing the exhaust valve to hang open just a bit.

I would lean more to the key on flywheel being partly sheered which will throw the timing off. that will happen if the motor has a sudden stop or jolt while running.

Popping thru carb, checked timing its ok,the push rods on three rocker arm hardley move one opens good, problem started all of a sudden.

INtake valve adjustment needed. at least on one cylinder. maybe both sides. while your in there adjust all. must have some clearance. .004 on intake .006 on exhust.
