I show this tractor to have a Briggs twin engine? Loosen the spark pug wires, and with the engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time. Engine should continue to run, if engine dies when either wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. Check t for spark and compression, If it has spark and compression, check the valves in the cylinder, for pushrod off.
