Have you checked the belt that drives the wheel? This is more than likely the problem. It may be broken.

SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

Your engine is flooding because you probably have some debris under the inlet float needle valve causing the carburetor to flood as you described.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Generally you can get away with a different brand that shares the component. Just take in the old one to compare when you purchase. They need to be the same size.

It is possible that the scews and/or latches for the cover will be accesible UNDER the deck where the blade it. Have someone tilt it back while you check and/or hold it for you while you removes the retainers and screws. If the unit IS defective, I suggest you take it back as the Toro should be warranted.

I believe you have a timing problem. Do you remember hitting something hard with your blade? I would say you have sheared your timing key. Order of repair : remove top cover to engine, this may involve gas tank, gas line, oil filler tube. Remove flywheel nut, remove flywheel. Timing key is the small key between flywheel and crankshaft. Timing key may just be dented but it will need to be replaced. Bring it with you, Tecumseh has a few different styles of key depending on engine and year.
