Hard hitting on compression stroke when starting


Most Briggs deco vaves are internal and pretty reliable, the valve clearances are very important, if the exhaust valve clerance is too wide the valve lifter will not work, if there is no adjustment yoy would have to fit a new service valve and re do the clerance by removing material from the valve stem

Briggs and Stratton OHV V-Twin 24hp repetitive valve adjustment


Try pulling out the choke a little, if it stops backfiring the mixture is too lean, check the intake
pipes at the cyl head and also the plastic runners to the carb for leaks.
