The flywheel key has sheared and it needs to be replaced. Replacing the flywheel key is a fairly straightforward procedure. Otherwise, it will be necessary to take the mower to have someone replace the flywheel key.
Here are some steps to follow to replace the flywheel key on your own (instructions are for a toro 20016 model mower):

Yes, it sounds like you need to adjust the blade brake clutch (BBC). I have a PDF service manual that explains it. If you post your email address I can upload it to you. Here's an excerpt from the manual:
BBC Adjusting the Blade Brake
1. Stop the engine. Pull the wire off the spark plug.
2. Remove the two screws securing the screen
panel to the top of the mower housing as shown
in Figure 22. Remove the panel. (The panel they're
referring to is the red screen between the motor
3. Move the control bar down and lift up against the
handle. With the control bar against the handle,
measure the spring length (L) at the front of the
spring as shown in Figure 26.
4. If the spring dimension is greater than 32 mm
(1-1/4") an adjustment is needed.
5. To adjust, loosen the bottom jam nut on the blade
brake cable as shown in Figure 27. Adjust the top
jam nut until spring dimension is as near as
possible to nut; not less than 25 mm (1") See
NOTE: Adjusting the top jam nut too high can
cause the cable end to crush the plastic fitting
when the control bar is moved up against the
handle. If the spring cannot be adjusted to less
than 32 mm (1-1/4") before the cable end
contacts the plastic fitting, the clutch belt is worn
out and should be replaced. After replacing the
belt, adjust the cable per the above procedure.
NOTE: 1990 and newer models are equipped
with finger tip adjusters that do not require tools.
Use the same adjustment criteria on these

This 1991-92 model is equipped with a blade brake clutch. When the blade slows down this means the belt is slipping. This slipping can be caused from a few different things.
1 --A loose cable.
Try adjusting the blade cable on the upper handle. this unit has an adjustable section. make sure the cable is not so tight that you snap it.
2 --A sticky pivot point under the belt cover
The belt cover in the back builds up with dirt and debris. Make sude it is clean under the cover and all of the pivots move freely. ( do this with the engine off)
3 --A sticky belt tensioner under the deck cover
The underside of this machine has a metal cover to protect the belts. Remove it and check that the blade belt idler arm is not frozen in place. this will cause the belt not to enguage all the way.
4 --A worn belt or belt pulley
The large flywheel and pulley can wear. Check this if the belt looks good.
This is all there is to the machine BBC system.
I hope this helps.

check your oil is it up to full, then I would check to see if you have compresson, pull your plug and roll over and feel with finger ,but don't touch spark plug wire or you will light up! next I would check for spark, then for fuel, make sure the carb is getting fuel,,,check your hoses and fuel cap and clean your carb and needle/seat and make sure gas will run through the fuel line. Also you could have sheared a flywheel key
the choke out you are talking about could of been a lean condition and smoked the eng rings
Good Luck compresson test should tell all 2StrokeJim
