Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
This happened to me,the engine sat for some time and the valves were varnished with stale fuel,they stuck in the guides.This bent the push rod and it was only running on one cylinder.The missing push rod worked its way into the crankcase through an oil passage . I took the engine sump of and found the push-rod. I cleaned removed the head,cleaned the valves and guides replaced push rods and gasket and it ran fine after that.I use fuel stabilizer now,it keeps the varnish from forming.

There was the missing pushrod wraped around the camshaft gear. no clue on how in the hell it did that! It also ended up breaking the govenor (quick look) will look for more damage tomorrow.
