Working on cub again after refreshed the engine with new pistons and rings.it's a16 hp v twin engine briggs . It sputters up a hill and won't run the deck.

It also has a oil leak somewhere from top so resealing the valve cover. It had oil spraying out of carb or breather before refresh and was told it needed rings .

What te heck is wrong with this thing. Thanks joey!

So what you describe sounds like blow by. One of the causes can be worn pistons and rings. The other is the cylinder head and valves.

If you honed the cylinders yourself with a handheld honer that can be dicey as you are guessing instead of using a shop suited for precision.

The head can have issues worn rods bad valves, bad timing.

May be other issues like cracks.

Best of luck. ....
