Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Check the flywheel key. Sounds like it is sheared causing late firing.
With piston at TDC the flywheel magnets should line up with the ignition coil legs.

1987 jr50 throttle cable to carbuator

On top of the carburator is a round cap where the cable passes through, un-screw it, remove the spring underneath, along with the piston/needle assembly. Thread the cable through the cap and then the spring, compress the spring by hand and pull the cable slack through. The top of the piston has 2 holes side by side, one larger than the other,with a narrow groove connecting the two together, thread the cable end into the larger hole and while holding it with one hand, use the other to slide the cable through the narrow groove connecting the 2 holes so the cable end is now under the smaller hole.
