Why does my 17.5 hp vertical briggs&stratton engine lock up when trying to start? It's like the exhaust valve isn't opening.

SOURCE: 31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter

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.
