Remove your spark plug and attempt to pull it thru without the plug. If it does pull thru, continue to pull it thru several times.
You may want to then clean the old fuel out of the tank and carb and replace with a fresh fuel/oil mix. It may have got contaminated with water.
If for some reason, you cannot pull thru with the spark plug out, spra some lube in the spark plug hole and let it soak a bit and then attempt to pull thru again after a good soak.
then replace the spark plug (with a new one) and check your fuel lines to make sure they're clean and not cracked and you should be good to go.

I have a 3hp briggs & stratton//the pull rope pulls freely//it does not engage the engine and turn the engine over


You probably need to replace the starter recoil. This is not a very expensive fix. Just be aware that this problem is usually caused by having to pull the starter rope excessively because of some other starting problem. Once you replace the recoil, keep your engine running properly.

Starter cord will not pull


The pull cord or rope works on a tight spring just under the cover that the rope is in. Usually three to four small bolts on the edge of the cover to remove to repair/replace either the spring or the rope. First I would try to turn the motor manually with your hand on the flywheel, it should move around either direction freely with no effort. If it does not the motor itself maybe stuck not the rope. Then you have a seized engine and a different problem to deal with.

Tiller won't start


Best advice is to spray some ether in the carb, if that doesn't start it up, then check the spark plug.

Starter rope hard to pull on mantis tiller


Sounds like your engine may be seized up. Mine did the same thing and I had to replace the block. If any dirt gets past the air cleaner or if your fuel mixture isn't right it won't take long to lock it up. If you need info on where to find parts, let me know. Good luck.

Gx160 pull cord rope broken


1. Buy a starter repair kit or get five feet of nylon rope similar to what was in the starter from a Lowe's, The Home Depot or the like.
2. Remove the three bolts holding the starter on the motor and remove any remaining rope on the pulley.
3. Line the hole in the pulley up with the hole in the starter housing and thread the rope through both.
4. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope and cut the tail off so it won't interfere with motor but not so short the knot comes undone.
5. Thread the other end of the rope through the t-handle and tie a knot in the very end so the handle won't come off and the rope won't be pulled into the starter during the next part.
6. Pull the rope up between the starter housing and pulley and get the rope into the notch in the pulley. Turn the pulley clockwise with the rope in the notch to put tention on the spring. Give it four turns.
7. When the notch gets back to the hole in the housing, hold the pulley and pull the rope back into place from outside the housing.
8. Let the pulley turn slowly so it retracts the rope.
9. You want four windings on the pulley and the t-handle to be held against the housing. If you don't get four windings on the pulley, give the pulley another tension turn (Step 6). If you have four windings and the t-handle isn't held against the housing or you get more that four windings, shorten the rope at the t-handle.
10. Reinstall the starter and you will be back in business.

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps
