This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.

Check the line head and cable, there may be grass or something like twine twisted between the shaft and housing. If nothing is found there take the spark plug out and see if it will turn over, possibly liquid gasoline has gotten into the cylinder somehow.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. Often seeing a diagram can help determining how it goes back together. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx
Basically you put the shaft into the center case, put the clip on the gear, put the gear on the shaft and rotate the clip into the spot provided below the shaft, mount the large washer, mount the spring guide collar, put the center of the spring into the end of the spring guide notch while the long spring extension hooks into the place provided in the center case. Now put the cover back on with the seal already mounted in the cover. Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

To replace the pull cord line:
If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case, purchase rope of the correct length (or cut) and the correct diameter at your local lawn/garden store, then:
1. Disconnect the long drive shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts). You may need to disconnect a wire to the kill-switch at this time.
3. Pull the cord until it stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.
6. Feed line through the recoil housing and into the recoil. Pass line through the hole in the recoil and knot the end. Trip to about .25 inch tail. Pull the rope through the grab handle and single or double knot this.
7. Remove the wedge and allow the spring to pull the rope back into the recoil.
8. If it does not completely recoil, either your rope is too long or you will need to add a "wind" to your spring buy removing the line and wind back 1 more turn. Retry.

The timing may be off. Has this mower ever hit anything while running. There is a small aluminum key that keeps the engine in time (flywheel to magneto) and it breaks if the mower blade hits an immovable object (rock, tree stump, meteorite etc.) The timing will be skewed and symptoms like yours will result.You can check the flywheel key by removing the cover on top of the mower and the starter/recoil unit.The key is in a slot on the top side of the crankshaft and fits a notch inside the flywheel. Look carefully. If it is sheared, the notch in the flywheel will NOT be lined up with the notch in the crankshaft and a new key will need to be installed after removing the broken one.
