Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Vanguard V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 23 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 386777 - 0036 - E1
Sounds like you're getting enough fuel (black smoke) Could be running on only one cylinder. Either stuck valve or loose valve adjustment or one bad magneto. You could try starting with one spark plug disconnected. If it doesn't start, reconnect that one and disconnect the other. IF it runs like it was, then you're running only one cylinder, and go to work on finding out why.
