Craftsman Edger 3 hp

Hello i have an older sears edger model 536.871302 and engine #
143.744032 that does not start and has very little compression.. I removed the head and i noticed that one of the valves is stuck in the open position but the other one moves freely and the piston looks very good. I would really appreciate it if someone could steer me in the right direction because i am really interested in making this one work.. Thanks alot for any help..

Sounds like a broken valve spring.

Sears edger

Thanks for replying so fast.. You are probably right but can i get to the spring fairly easily cause it looks like its clogged with soot also..
