Friday my 16hp OHV Briggs & Stratton gave up the ghost. No compression suddenly and the started just makes the magneto whirl like a disconnected top. A tune up on this engine was $200 so getting it fixed is out of the question I think. So, I have a Murray riding mower. How can I find out what engines I can replace it with? Their website licks donkey scrote, btw.

You have a stuck valve. Probably the exhaust valve. Take off muffler and spray with wd40 and change that damn oil if it does start.

The oil is new, PB but the carb float did stick open again last month and dump my gas into the oil. I put a valve on the gasline and replaced the oil but that kinda thing can mess up your valves, I know. I'll try the WD40 thing THEN buy a new engine if I have to!! Thx, guys, good stuff
