Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I bought an eXmark Metro walk-behind mower with a bad Kawasaki engine. A local dealer replaced the Kawasaki with a Briggs & Stratton 17.5 hp, but did not hook up the kill switch.

There are interlock handles at the grips that kill the engine if it is gear, but the dealer won't help me and I can't figure out how to connect it. Any ideas?

If you remover the pull assembly off you'll see that it fits into this housing it looks like a gear almost that is the flywheel they may refer to it as fan but if you were to take that off underneath if where the magnets are located and also you could try cleaning the air filter as well but if it is hard to pull then I am pretty sure you fly or "fan" wheel is the culprit hope this helps
