Question about Garden
Check the diaphragm in the carburetor. I am willing to bet it is dried out and stiff so it won't supply fuel. an easy way to check is to put a small amount of gas right into the carb and try starting it. it should run on the fuel you put in then die once it is gone. if it does then it is most likely carburetor trouble, if it doesn't run then it is probably a spark issue

Simply check to see if motor is locked is to remove spark plug and try to pull start. If motor turns, then he may have gotten gas in cylinder and created hydraulic lock. If moto does not turn, it is just a few screws more to take side cover off and see if rope caught in pully. In fact, you may want to take side cover off first, and make sure rope pulls out of housing, and self winds, like it should. At hat point, he can simple turn flywheel by hand to see if motor is locked up.
If the motor is locked up, you can put small amount of motor oil, (half a tea spoon) into spark plug hole, let it sit half an hour or so, and then try to work the flywheel back and forth to break it free. This condition may have been caused by running straight gas, not mixed. And, even if motor frees up, it may still need to go in for repair.
We have a couple of Poulin Pros at this saw mill where I work, and have had the piston lock up more than once, from guys dumping in straight gas. Sometimes we'ra able to free up piston, and make saw run again. And sometimes we end up tearing it down and repairing piston ring. Good Luck

Thats a little strange.
Only thing that comes to mind is someone else had access to it and swapped out a plug that is too long for your short plug, Check plug type in owners manual.
maybe on sunday their 4 wheeler wouldn't start and this was quick fix.
Take off the chain cover or starter and see if it turns back and forth almost one full turn with a sudden stop at both ends of rotation. (Hitting plug)
if this is ok get back to me.

Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Starter rope will not retract.
inside the rope pull housing is a flat spring,it may have come loose from its anchor, its an easy fix...unscrew the 3 screws on housing, lift off housing, and the rope pull is inside the casing, you will then see if its broken, or just come off anchor, 10 minute job if its just loose......
