Not sure if this will help. Don't want to sound like a **** but....Have you made sure nothing is caught or jammed inside it. This could make it hard to start with the cord..

If I understand what you are saying... The starter pulls smoothly with the starter cover removed or when installed and the plug removed (no compression or spark). If this is correct I think your saw's timing has slipped or maybe a defective decomp valve. Time to visit your neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic.HTH

I have several older Briggs engines on mower and tillers and was having similar problems. I purchased electronic ignition kit (Nova II) from lawn mower shop and installed with easy wiring instructions (about $12). Used same old coil. Engines ran better, more power and never needs adjustment. Look here for instructions:
One thing to check however, you may have pinched kill wire when removing/installing starter cover. Temporarily remove wire from kill tab on coil and check for spark. Good Luck.

There are 3 metal arms that come out when the recoil is pulled. These arms can get dirty or rust and stick in so the recoil won't engage the flywheel or crank. .You will need to pull off the recoil and lubricate and work back and forth the arms.
