Nothing Right wheel has no tracktion. Spins free?
Are your wheels bolted to the axles or are there hitch pins? If you have pins make sure that the pin is through the wheel and axle not just the axle. If that is OK, then the cable that goes to the release may be to tight. Try and adjust it looser.

The manual has a step by step procedure for adjusting the cables for the auger, speed selector and drivewheels. One socket wrench and about 10 min should do it.
My Yardworks is an MTD product and it's manual should be similar to yours. If you lost it, you can download it from MTD's site.

You must remove the starter cover. Remove the metal shroud that includes the fuel tank. Tou will see the flywheel (it has a number of curved fins on the edge.)Remove the nut holding the flywheel and find one of the same thread size. Use the one you found and thread it on just a few turns. Take the edge of the flywheel in one hand and tap on the nut with the other using a hammer. You may have to rap sharply. Once the flywheel comes loose, pick it off of the engine and you will see the keyway on the top of the shaft. The key connects the flywheel to the shaft and will break if you hit something very strong. If you change the key and it starts running correctly and you had hit something prior to the break, CHECK THE BLADE...Good luck...Lee

Concerning your starter/pull cord problem, what has probably happened is that due to sitting idle for an extended period, the pinion gear had stuck in the down position on the clutch drive.
When you engaged it with power it spun as it was supposed to do but did not immediately spin up into the ring gear.
After you released the starter button and it began to slow down the gear spun up into the flywheel and jammed because it didn't have enough power to turn the engine.
A usually simple fix for this is to turn the engine backward by hand just enough to relieve the tension and the return spring will push the gear back down.
At this point, you can try the electric starter again and it should work properly. If it does not work, you will have to remove the starter and clean and inspect the starter drive on the top of the starter.
Concerning the fact that it would not start, you more than likely have some old fuel trapped in the bottom of the float bowl.
You may be able to remedy this by spraying some carburetor cleaner in the carb while trying to start it.
If it has spark and everything else is in good condition, it will start and run as long as it has carb cleaner getting to the engine so you may need to spray it a few times while it is running on that and sometimes the stale fuel problem will clear itself.
If it doesn't clear up and run on its own without the carb cleaner after 3 or 4 shots of spray you will need to remove the float bowl and clean it and the main jet with the carb cleaner.
Protect your eyes and bare skin while using the carburetor cleaner, it will injure you. Do not spray it on any rubber gaskets or seals, it will swell and ruin them.
Sorry for the "book" I wrote but I am trying to explore as many possibilities as I can to get you up and snow blowing!

Testimonial: "Cured the problem just like you said. Thanks"
Repair Manual (Antique) - CE8069 for engines built prior to 1981
Point setting should be .020" after they are full open. I am nut sure that TDC will give full open.
Armature/coil air gap should be 'the thickness of the cardboard' of the box it came in.
*note: the coating on the wire from the coil to the points should be sanded off where they connect to the points.
The voltage coming from the coil is DC and may be as much as 8,000 to 15,000 volts. You WILL know it when it has spark, as in, you may have to change your underwear if it sparks and you are touching the end of the wire.
The 'afterthought' is that an electronic coil could have been mounted to eliminate the points to aid in a sharper spark and easier starting.
Final note: make sure all snwoblower frame wiring and switches are working correctly, as this can 'kill' the spark.

Find the B&S website and you should be able to download a parts or service manual.
Think it is briggsandstratton.com.
You will also need your type number (after the 92908).
