Murray 12.5 HP B&S Riding Mower Timing Problem?

I've had a problem starting my 3-year-old Murray mower. This is a B&S engine model 28V707. When I crank, it seems like it has a hard time getting past a certain point. Sometimes if it cranks almost a full revolution before this point, it will start. But once it starts, it seems REALLY loud, much louder than a 12.5 hp engine should be. Could this be a timing problem, and, if so, how do I adjust the timing? BTW, I replaced the battery and that did not help.
