these are common for doing this ,if you dont want to pull it down and hone the cyl. then i would use a heavier oil say 20w/50and that will probabley solve your problem

Hopefully you have tried using the choke...
Hopefully you have opened a possible hidden fuel valve. This is an easy thing to forget or set wrong... I have done that myself!

Pull the spark plug out and see if it isnt hydro locked. Someone might have overfilled the oil or the carb float may have stuck open and filled the intake with gas!
If the recoil is still stuck you can remove it from the mower and try it without any load on it. Still stuck? The unit might be rusted solid!
You can spray a little penetrating oil into it but be careful.....the oil will soak the pull cord which should be cleaned and degreased immediately following using the penetrating oil.

Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.
