Briggs and stratton lawnmower timing

It would help to know the model number of the engine BUT the timing is controlled by the flywheel. If there is an issue it is usually because the flywheel has slipped and lost alignment with the shaft. Check the woodruff key and see if it is straight.

Briggs & Stratton 4 cycle Lawnmower engine no fuel from carberator. Fuel is being supplied to carberator but only runs when starting fluid is used. Gas is new. What's clogged?

the float may be gummed up. or the needle is plugged up.
you need to clean the carburetor, old gas left in the carburetor turns
into shellac and gums up in side. you need to take it apart and clean it.
