Briggs & Stratton 22 HP V-Twin won't start

I have a Briggs & Stratton 22 HP V-Twin OHV, Model 407777 on a John Deere LA145 mower. I bought it refurbished from Lowe's, and when I got it home it wouldn't start (no, I didn't ask them to start it for me at the store, at a $750 discount for a nearly new John Deere, I would have bought it whether it started or not). Anyway, when I turn the ignition key I get a strong whiring sound but there appears to be no ignition of gasoline. I removed the fuel line from the carb end and turned key to see gas being pumped out from the fuel pump. I next removed the plugs and squirted a little gas into the cylinder, replaced plugs, turned key, and ignition of the gas did occur but the engine still didn't start. What should I try next?

Sounds like you either don't have any spark or valves or out of adjustment

Changing oil in Biggs and Stratton engine


Use 10W30 weight oil. The capacity is 1.5 Quarts (48 ounces) with filter change. I highly recommend you use 100% synthetic oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil and filter every 50 hours of use.
