Start with the easist fix and move from there,
do you have gas? is there gas in the carb?
spark compression and fuel are all that are needed to run.
a sudden loss of compression would have been surprising,
if you have spark you can look past all your electrical fixes for now.
possibly a fuel shutoff switch that was closed and not opened?
fuel cap not venting?

Thanks guys, I popped off the flywheel and there it was, the keyway was in two pieces. Another quick question I'm noticing a bit of oil leaking underneath on the pto and on the ground. Is the crank seal or something a common leak on the briggs 16. I still cant believe that I got this tractor for $22.50 on ebay...Thanks, Matt
