A friend of mine brought down a Troy Bilt wood chipper with a not running 10hp B/S

The only thing read on the tag is 3BSX  3422HT   275385                  

When you pull the starter rope the engine just spins kind of freely like no comp or load

I know nothing about B/S engines but I'm guessing no comp for some reason

Suggestions or help appreciated

How new is it? The connecting rod could have broke and the piston is stuck some where in the cylinder. Or you could need new rings. Thats what I suggest is wrong. Ian.

Remove the spark plug & see if the piston is rising / falling as you pull the start cord.  If it is, you are looking at stuck valves, blown head gasket or rings.

The stuck valve is common. A little PB Blaster through the spark plug hole may free it up. I have a bent piece of brazing rod that I reach in with to push the valve down. I put Marvel Mystery Oil in my gas to prevent the sticking. Also when you park an engine, turn it until there is compression so that both valves are closed. Good Luck, Rick

Larry, those numbers don't seem to line up with the standard BS format. You might want to take a look here to see if you can find parts or other info. http://www.briggsand.../manuals/engine

Sounds like it's toast. Those splitters can run an engine hard. For a cheap new engine I'd try a 13hp clone engine from Lifan which is a good quality engine. I think HD sells them. The 13hp won't have to work as hard.

I believe the numbers you have found are from the emissions label. If it's an OHV engine,  the model, type and code numbers are probably stamped on the valve cover.
