Question about Poulan Garden
If this engine is a briggs ohv unit
try adjusting the valves so that decompressor can do its thing
and decompress the engine for easier starting
valve clearance is sett @ 1/4 inch tdc on power stroke to 0.003 " inlet and 0.005" exhaust
on briggs alloy push rod is inlet and steel one is exhaust
the bottom valve assy is inlet and top one is exhaust
because of cross flow design of engine
but check battery positive cable and negative cable to earth and make sure good connections - check your starter motor earthing and bushes
if kohler engine with hydraulic lifters make sure you use 10w/30 oil not sae 30 oil or it wont decompress properly

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or
injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
