Need to remove the pull cord assembly. Something is amiss in there. If you don't want to attempt it, I'd take it to a shop.

Broken spring in recoil starter on lawn mower


While I have not done this on newer model lawn mowers, I have replaced recoil springs in the past. Here's what I did: First you need to pull the spark plug wire off so the engine will not start. Then block the flywheel with a piece of wood to keep it from turning. Then, using another piece of wood such as a short (6-8 inch) hardwood dowel placed against the ears of the recoil drive, and drive it in a reverse direction (clockwise) with a hammer to knock it loose. It may take several sharp blows to break it loose. The recoil drive is reverse threaded to keep it from coming loose when the engine is running. Once the drive is loose, remove it to get access to the recoil spring which must be replaced if it is broken. With a new spring in place, rethread the recoil drive counter clockwise until it is finger tight. Then, tighten it down with one sharp blow against the wooden dowel.

Why is my Tecumseh 6.5 hp engine hard to start after taking blade off.?


When you tilt the mower too much oil will mix with gas. Try taking out the spark plug and cleaning it good in case some oil got on it. If this don't solve it, drain the gas and refill with fresh gas in case oil mixed with it when you tilted the mower.

Yoy can try tightening the blade bolt. i know it sounds funny but if the blade bolt is loose (or even alittle loose) the blade balance throws off the engine balance and can cause it to
1 not start
2 make loud clunking noises when trying to start
3 make a real racket if it does start

try flipping the lawn mower over and just tighten the bolt that holds the blade in place.
That should fix your problem.
