Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
The drive shaft probably just needs to be lubricated. Squirt some WD-40 or oil onto the shaft where it disappears into the body of the mower. Then turn the blade by hand a couple of times and squirt some more in, and repeat until the blade becomes easier to turn. Then the cord should pull without a problem.

First of all disconnect the spark plug wire. Then turn the awnmower on it's side with the carburetor pointing up. Carefully try to turn the engine using the blade, you should wear gloves as to not cut yourself on the blade. If the blade will turn a full revolution 360 degrees you should check your recoil starter for a foreign object jamming it. If the engine only turns a little bit or not at all there is a good chance the engine was run without or low on oil and it is siezed.

You will have to pull hard at least once to settle this problem. Are you sure you sure you do not have the engine brake engaged? If this mower has a brake relese (engine), YOU MUST PULL BACK ON THE LEVER AT THE TOP OF YOUR MOWER. iF THATS NOT IT we NEED MORE INFORMATION !

First - remove spark plug and squirt 3mls of engine oil in there - replace spark plug and leave overnight.
Try pulling that start handle !
Two things may happen - it snaps or - it turns over.
If it turns over - prime fuel and start in choke setting.
If the cord snaps - undo the pull start block - and take it to a lawnmower spares depot, and buy some more cord. It's quite cheap.
Get the length right so you don't have too much.
Next - the engine is probably seized - so needs freeing up. You may be able to do this with the new cord, Otherwise - take the head off the cylinder and tap the piston down with a wooden drift while turning the crank.
Use a non-setting gasket sealant like hematite red to re-use the old gasket. Lawnmowers are quite resilient.
