Briggs V-Twin running on 1 cylinder, will not turn over due to high compression.
Check rocker arm movement to determine cam condition.
Replace worn out cam (one lobe gone).
Good time to change the seal at this time too.
Carefully adjust the valves "by the book".
Check / clean carburetor very carefully. The idle jets are very small and clogs aren't easily seen.
(took 2 attempts)
Turns over freely now and runs like a top.

Thanks !
