Question about Briggs & Stratton Ignition Kit 2-8 HP Engines with Breaker Point Ignition #5012D
I assume this engine is mounted on a push mower. Did you hit something as a root or other object? If so you have broken the flywheel key, sometimes called a shear pin, it will not run. You will need to remove the flywheel cover and then look see if the pin is sheared off. Look down the crankshaft keyway and see if it has turned. If so, simply replace the flywheel key. This site describes in detail how to replace the key.
Here is a video of the procedure.
