Starting problem could be caused by incorrectly set(lean)hi speed/low speed needles,dirt in internal hi/low speed passages of carb body,worn throttle shaft hole in carb body,choke not closeing all the way,air leak at carb mounting gasket,low eng compression caused by cyl/ring wear or leaking head gasket.

If you don't have a service/repair manual for eng check at local mower shop,ebay or briggs website for manual in either paper/cd version that covers your mod# eng,given age of eng you may need briggs obselete/out of production service/repair manual as after 80 the point type ign systems for the old letter/number series eng are not covered in newer manuals,manual will probably also help you with carb/starting problem.

Hi G1355, 120 psi is good, as Joe posted it could be a lean setting of the idle circuit, turn the idle jet out about 1/4 turn and see if it starts and runs better if you make it too rich it will smoke black when the throttle is advanced, those are good old engines lots of power and torque and they do like gas. If you want a manual for the engine look for: B&S Repairman's Handbook for Older Engines 1919-1981 CE8069, it should be available on the web somewhere, it covers many engines and at first is a little hard to figure out but all the information is there.
The owner operators manual is available from B&S on there site, you'll need all the numbers off the blower housing Model type and code numbers.

Ok, I don't ever work on Briggs motors, I have a hh100 and k241 which I know very good, and know how to set carb, but the Briggs is kinda different. I will mess with the setting on the carb.

Your carburetor may be similar to the one on my Toro Grassking mower. You may need to open that main jet adjusting screw. If they're too lean the engine may overheat and lack power when working the tractor hard. Hal
