Question about Garden
Low compression 70/80 lbs. Could it be sticking valves or is it probably rings
How old is the mower? Is it OHV or flathead? Does it burn oil? Low compression in these small engines is usually caused by bad rings. Try putting one-half teaspoon of motor oil in the cylinder, crank the engine without the spark plug in, replace the spark plug and try to start the engine. If it starts and runs, then the rings need to be replaced. By putting oil in the cylinder, you re-seal the rings to the cylinder wall, this is only temporary. Deglaze the cylinder wall and replace the rings and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: My Honda GXV 160 is
Before you spend time and money on Buds solution I had exactly the same symptom .If it starts first pull when the engine is warm it is not a fuel or spark problem ,it will be the choke,on mine when the choke lever was full on it did not opperate the choke enough as the cable goes to choke it turns the metal bit clock wise but the metal choke will bend over time and will not be opening the choke just carefully bend the metal bit with some pliers so when the cable is on choke it now actuly opens the choke,it will now start first time when cold ,try this first before you strip apart the carburetor,I liked buds solution may be you might like mine ! www.distinctivehomeimprovements.co.uk

Depends where it is leaking from, wash it off to see where it is coming from, it may well be the bottom crankcase seal, once the blade and carrier are removed you should gain acess to this, if it is leaking you will need to remove the seal and replace.
