be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Did you find the problem with the rider slipping when going down hills, I have one that is doing the same thing, I changed the belts, but that still did not help. It does not do it going up hils in forward gear, or going up or down in reverse. Thanks Bob
