i recon its just very flooded.
take the plug out for a day or two.
take of the air filter and check it to see if its filthy.
when starting a briggs, put the choke on, pull the starter.
if its going to start, it will cough once or twice then stop.
turn off the choke, and pull again. normally starts within 3 pulls.
if you keep on pulling the starter with the choke on, it wont ever start.
you can check to see if petrol is getting up into the carb ( if its one of the models with the petrol tank below the carb) by removing the air filter, putting the screw back in, putting your hand over the  air filter hole and pulling the rope a few times.
if petrol is getting up, you should feel the petrol cold against your hand.
if you cant, then the petrol pick up tubes are blocked in the fuel tank, and you will need to remove the tank/carb assembly and and unblock them. they can block up with fine particles of rubbish in the perol, or if you leave petrol in it for any length of time , as it goes off it leaves a varnish like sticky deposit on them.
my best guess is you have been pulling the starter like a man posessed, and flooded the engine.
could be wrong tho..... :wink:
