Question about Craftsman 46" 21hp Briggs & Stratton Turn Tight Hydrostatic Yard
I ran the mower a couple hours. Stopped and it won't restart. compression lock. If I remove the plug it will turn over all day. Or is there another way of timing this motor? Thanks
No a lot closer to .005 but need the engine info to give the correct setting. .020 will definitely cause the decompression to become non-operative.

SOURCE: wont start
It sounds like the cylinder is filling up with gas,does it still do it after you take the plug out and crank it and put the plug back in and does it have any gas come out of the cylinder when you crank it?

You can't set the timing, the flywheel is locked to the crankshaft via the key.
If you don't have compression, you may have twisted / bent the crankshaft as well, or the camshaft was damaged (though this is rare).
Why do you say that you have no compression? Did you put a compression guage onto the engine and spin it with the starter?
Does the engine happen to turn slower than before when you try to start it? A bent crank shaft can cause it to turn slower, and if it turns too slow, the compression release (if equipped) may not disengage which would cause a loss of compression.

Testimonial: "Thanks, the engine spins as if the spark plug was removed. When I remove the plug I canonly see the vavles, which move in and out when motor turns, In this model the piston is not visable. Trying to avoid removing head but this is my next move."

to be honest the enigne ahas a control that the left side must fire and run before the right starts to fire it sounds to me like you have a fuel issue possibly the carb. is gummed up and dirty.
