The last one I worked on needed a new coil, was not getting spark. Check to see that yours is getting a spark, also check to see that the coil is close enough to flywheel, since you changed the key way. I assume that you removed the flywheel.

SOURCE: Grandson ran lawnmower on tree stump, bent blade

Hi momnpop2...

Either you can rent or if you have a puller the size to fit your flywheel then that is what you will use to pully the flywheel off after you remove the flywheel nut...
There is another way...but be really careful with this can cause damage it if your overley aggressive...
Loosen the flywheel nut about 3 turns...then get two screwdrivers and put pressure on the flywheel from underneath with both screwdrivers at opposite sides of the flywheel.
Then with a brass/bronze hammer or rod strike the top of the flywheel nut as you are prying up on the flywheel with the will need some help to do it this way...
Someone to operate the screwdrivers while you hammer on the nut...the flywheel should pop up and then remove the nut and lift the flywheel.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Replaced the harmonic balancer and keyway, but the car won't start. The belts are turning all right.

Check that you have not damaged the crank position sensor or disconnected the wires to it . Check the air gap and the rotor for dirt and any thing that will prevent the sensor from working correctly.

Did you hit something Hard with the lawn mower blade? That will break the keyway and cause the Timing to be off.

How to replace a square key on a lawnmower axle

Marc, if the wheel does not have the channel for the square key, then you have a mismatch and the wrong wheel. Put a new tire on the old wheel, or take it in to a mower shop and ask for an exact replacement.
