Usually there is not. The timing is through the flywheel that connects to the crankshaft and it is permanently set with a woodruff key. When evereything is tight, the timing is good. IF you hit something and cause the blades to stop, the flywheel can move and twist on the shaft and bend the woodruff key. The engine then wont start or will backfire etc. To fix this you need to pull the flywheel off the crankshaft and replace the woodruff key and reinstall it.

Lawn mower batter charger blows circuit breaker

I'd try plugging it into another outlet first, then try turning off any other appliances that might be on that same circuit. If it continues to trip the breaker, I'd take it to the small engine shop.
hope this helps

Setting timing marks

Most small engines do not have timing marks. If your timing is off, its usually due to a sheared flywheel key, you can check this by removing the nut on the flywheel and seeing if you can tell the key slot on the flywheel lines up with the slot on the crankshaft. New keys are very cheap. If you are still having ignition problems, the problem would be in the ignition module. Also check your plug, just in case.

If you had replaced the flywheel key & did not engage the saftey bail it would brake the brake. Make sure the bail is engaged befor installing the flywheel.

I need to fix athe pull string on my toro push behind mower. it has an 195cc tecumseh motor. the string broke and i can't find anything on toro about how to fix it without buying the whole assembly.

remove bolts from cover and remove the cover. Should be able to access the assembly for the pull rope. Go to a local mower repair shop buy some new line. The old line should just be knotted up on the spring loaded wheel in there. You put a new piece on put in a new knot, put some turns on the assembly to basically wing the spring so it snaps back when pulled, put line through whole and attach to pull handle.
