Your carb is gunky up from bad gas most likely.
Anytime an engine will run for a bit after putting gas into the carb, you are pretty well assured that it's the carb.
Remove and clean the carb paying special attention that all the little orifices are open by spraying carb cleaner into them.

Cam timing requires engine disassembly on small engines and it's either right or wrong.
You could be off on ignition timing if you sheared the key on the flywheel which then requires the flywheel to be removed to replace the key.
Make sure it's not something simple before you go deeper into the problem. Gas/fuel delivery, dirty carb, bad spark plug, all the safeties not made.

If you're looking to obtain an oil drain plug -- your post doesn't actually say that -- I'd recommend your local hardware or plumbing or home improvement store. Briggs & Stratton generally uses standard iron pipe threading on their oil sump drains. You'll want a 3/8" IPT plug.

Be sure to compare the removed belt to the new belt for length and width. Often belts get mis-packaged into the wrong container or otherwise mis-labeled. A belt that is even 1/4" longer will not provide the correct contact tension. Also be sure the pins that the carriage moves on are lubricated. Corrosion can keep the carriage from keeping tension on the belt as the carriage weight can not tension the belt. Hope this helps.

you are clearly burning oil. did you overfill? or tilt the unit so that engine oil went into the carb through the breather? now the carb may be soiled/partly clogged, you need to clean it. esp. the idler air part may be at fault. sometimes it is possible to run it at high rev until the fuel has washed out the oil, but better clean the carb and replace the air filter.

You can prime the engine by taking cover off the air filter and removing the air filter. Cover attached by one screw. Spray starter fluid behind the white-plastic guard. Before attempting to start you must put back filter and cover. If not, the air/fuel mix will not be correct and the engine will quickly die out.

Sounds like you have air in the Hydraulic line. There must not be air because air will compress and it will do exactly what you described. To remove the air make sure your hydraulic fluid is full. Then cycle the ram a few times. Do not try to split yet. Do this again few times and top off the fluid again. When all the air is removed from the lines It will work properly.

It's adjusted too tight or the belt is too small

it is how much power the motor has. In the old days people travelled on horses . One horse produced one horse power. So if you had a buggy with 5 horses attached to it you had a five horse power buggy. So your schredder engine has the equivalent power produced by five horses.

You say Pull rope mechanism is ok, How do you know that? Ive's seen them get the rope a little off and gets caught being wedged into a small clearance. Is the rope wearing? I bet if you take it apart put a new nylon rope and some wd-40 in rubbing surfaces including the ratchet area it will be good as new. Crank bearing has to get really bad to effect pull. How is the spark?
