    First make sure the brake is fully releasing as it has the ignition switch attached to it.
     
    Here is the instructions from the owners manual.

    Just out of curiosity did you install a blade if the mower does not have bbc.

    I have a kawasaki fb460v on a Toro weed mower. It won't start. Checked gas, spark. Not much compression. I can't find the OHV plate. Where is the valve cover so I can check the clearances?
