How old is the battery? Is it fully charged? Are all the cable & battery connections clean, free of corrosion and tight?

it would be helpful to know what you have, but since this is a common problem on single cylinder ohv briggs engines, I will assume that's what you have. If so, you need to adjust the valves.
