When I bought my 716H, it had the blackest oil I have ever seen in it; and it smoked a little. Took 2 oil changes to clean that out using 10w30. Then I switched to straight SAE30 (for WARM weather use). Now it doesn't smoke, barely uses oil. BLT's got a great idea with the simple jet adjustments - that procedure is in most of the manuals too. Some carbs are more adjustable than others. Definitely cover the basics if you have not already done so. Most of these motors run forever with basic care. "Tired"? A slight loss of factory spec compression is not really serious. Big noise, clanging and banging, piston slap, etc. - that's another story. A clogged cooling system, overheating, etc. is another possibility. Also bad old ethanol gas (gummy deposits) is pure trouble - switch to premium gas (no ethanol) could fix everything while in regular use for a short time. "SeaFoam" might help clean it out also.

I took a 243431 Briggs from a 3410, and put it in my 2110, it was a drop in. Then I took a newer (1985) Briggs 11HP and put it in the 3410. It wasn't a drop in swap, but it wasn't bad. What I'm saying that pretty much any Briggs horizontal shaft enging can be made to fit, it depends on how much engineering you want to do.
