[B]I hate to say it, but it sounds like what happened to my B&S 19HP engine. Brand new, I ran it for two hours before it seized. Briggs says it was bad gas and my fault. The same gas that was in that engine also went into another Briggs engine that was 4 years older with no problems whatsoever. I wish you luck, my friend. [B]

Can you turn the engine with the palm of your hand on top of the screen on top of the engine?

When you try to crank it, do you get a clunk or any other noise?
