Set the valves to .004-.005. Over .007 and it will be hard to crank.

Search youtube for a voltage drop test. Very easy test with an ohm meter.

Try using jumper cables directly from vehicle to the starter. It will spark, so make sure no gas is close by. If it cranks over, then you have a voltage drop somewhere from the battery to the starter. Could be the solenoid and could be dirty connections or decayed wires.

Agree, working of the B&S compression release system is VERY dependant on the valve setting being right.

If you have one that the starter struggles to get cranking, adjust the valves.
You will find the valve setting at .o10 + loose, readjust them to .004 and it will turn over like new.

Not quite briggs tech procedure, but adjust each valve while it's partner is wide open, will get it very close. With the sparkplugs removed, it's easy to turn the engine by hand to get the valves in the correct adjusting position.
