Alright, I know someone on here know small engines and I figure that I may get my fastedt reply on GT. I recently "inhereted" an old Murray 22" highwheel mower with a 5.75 hp B&S motor. I dont know much about this machine. It has run fine for the little while I have used it. I was mowing a thick area and choked it out. Before trying to start back up, I too a little break and cleaned up the area a bit. When I went back to crank it, I pulled the cord and nothing. The cord did not even rewind, which I thought was odd as it had not ever done that before(the 15-20 times I cranked it before anyway). I thought how in the world was I going to get the cord back in when it hit me to turn the blade to make the cord rewind. Well, it worked, and cranked up, but ran awfully bad. So, I cut it off to check to see what was happening. Nothing stood out so I tried cranking again to see if anything changed. Well, now when I pull the cord, it just pulls and rewinds. It's like it doesnt even engage to motor to turn it over. I am at a loss. What have I done? And mostly, have I FUBAR'd the mower?
