SOURCE: how much oil to put in a 6.25 briggs and stratten

They hold APPROXIMATELY 20 ounces. Put in around 18 oz and start checking the dipstick and adding a little until it gets to the full or MAX or whatever it says on your particular engines stick. Each time you ad a little, give it a chance to drain down or you will get a false reading

Starter turns engine too slowly

If the engine has not been taken apart, then the problem should be either too much oil or a weak battery, and lastly a weak starter. If the engine was "rebuilt" then the timing may be off.
