Hook a known good battery out of another vehicle or take the leads off of your mower battery and hook a set of jumper cables from your car battery and see if it turns over hard still. Does the mower run good once started or does it not start at all because of the slow starting?

Valve heads carbond up on 24 hp brigs and stration


That's a pretty common problem on small engines, but I never heard of brigs and stration! If that really the name, I am surprised that the real Briggs & Stratton did not sue them for trademark infringement, since it looks somewhat similar!

Is the noise you hear actually the solenoid popping or the starter gear jumping into the flywheel?? You say it finally starts so I am guessing the starter is engaging and actually bumping the flywheel a little. If that is the case it is probably a dragging starter or weak battery. First thing is to be sure the battery is fully charged then see if it will turn over easily. If not you may have a started problem.

You should be able to Fix this yourself if your a fair garage tinkering mechanic. However...I need the engine and type number off of the engine to get you parts information. The spring is broken in your recoil. It is a matter of removing the air shroud, taking off the pulley / spool and changing the spring.

and how to tension the spring:
http://www.ehow.com/video_2328961_how-tension-lawn-mower-starter.html

There are 2 different types of springs used so having your engine model / type number is important so that you can get the right spring. One of the 2 part numbers is: 390066

From your description it seems that the starter is not engaging to turn over the engine. First ensure all the connections of the thicker cables to the battery, starter and tractor frame are clean and tight. If starter motor is turning but still not engaging it will mean that the pinion on the starter motor is binding on the shaft. You can buy a new starter pinion gear from your local B & S agent.
To replace pinion, remove starter motor from engine, remove old pinion and put on new one and reattach starter to engine. If fuel & spark are right you should be up amd running.

Replace the battery. Even though the battery may say it's good, it doesn't have enough of cranking amps. Go purchase a battery with 350 cranking amps. This will fix your problem. The battery power isn't enough to kick the starter completely up to turn the engine.

Unfortunately it sounds like you threw a connecting rod in other words a blown motor. The connecting rod has become disconnected from the crankshft and is jammed up between the case and the crank itself, the engine must be dissasembled and rebiult.
