Re: B&S 6.5HP for a Troy Bilt Pressure Washer
That was it! I removed the engine cover and spun the flywheel by hand a few times. I noticed that the exhaust valve was moving up and down and was able to be turned with my fingers but, the intake valve would only open a small fraction and was not able to be turned at all. Following some excellent videos on You Tube I sprayed it with WD-40 and put some light oil down only the value guides. And, first pull (ok, it was the second!) the pressure washer coughed to life. A simple fix - once you know how. I want to thank you for your excellent advise.
