If the engine turns over freely with the sark plug out, then check for loose,rusty,or corroded connections from the headlights back too the battery.Even the ground wires throughout. recheck with a fully charged battery (12.6 v)

Where is Briggs and stratton engines made?

Originally from when Briggs & Stratton started business in 1919, the engine's were built in Milwaukee Wisconsin to 1985 and well into the 1990's. Recently great production is very little from were Briggs & Stratton was originally started. These day's there is great activity of Briggs & Stratton parts from China/Japan and Briggs & Stratton engine blocks being casted in Mexico. Truley a great devistation to a once GREAT engine. Which is why alot of people like myself will no longer recommend a Briggs & Stratton engine. Today your best bet is Kohler (still U.S. produced), Kawasaki or Honda.
