Pull the belt cover off on the side of the engage lever and you will see that it is not a wire cable that engages the idler pulley. It's a rod connected to a long spring. Perhaps the spring came off or is defective as it puts tension on the idler pulley against the drive belt when you engage the blades. Further, there is a return spring to pull the idler pulley away from the drive belt when you disengage the blades. Check all the connections for the springs and see that the engage lever is mounted tightly. Also check the idler pulley itself.

the cord could be tanlged up, pull it all the way out and make sure it is round the "bobbin" and not slipped off the side on the shaft.
you wight be able to slip it back onto the bobbin with a screwdriver or piece of hooked wire -
Also you are using the proper mix of 2 stroke and fuel?, 50:1 fuel to oil, or more for older.worn engines, say 40:1 for old engines, they run better like that - smell nice too.
apart from that... oil the puller mechanism, normal engine oil will do the trick - it can only help.

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A USED SWISHER FOR $700 13.5 HP 60 INCH I BELIEVE THE MODEL IS 1340D? I'M HOPING I DIDN'T GET RIPPED OFF AND THIS IS SOMETHING SIMPLE..I THINK THAT'S THE MODEL NUMBER I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE THE STAMP O N THE SIDE ISN'T TO LEGIBLE , ANYWAY WHEN I SPRAY STARTING FLUID INTO THE AIR FILTER IT RUNS BUT THEN STOPS. IT HAS A NEW BATTERY, FUEL LINE AND FILTER AND I JUST TOOK THE CARBURETOR OFF AND SPRAYED IT OUT WITH GUNK CLEANER TO NO AVAIL. THE FLOAT BOWL WAS REALLY CRUDDY. I'M WONDERING WHERE I CAN GET A NEW CARB? ARE THEY AVAILABLE? IF SO WHERE? THANKS
