Carb. Needs needle valve or float repair to keep fuel from flooding. If it does not have shut off valve in fuel line from tank to carb. Install one and ALWAYS close when storing between mowing. .

(1)Take fuel line off of fuel pump that goes to fuel tank.
(2) blow into it like your blowing gas back into tank may have to loosen fuel cap if there is a restriction it may help.
(3) The line that comes from valve cover to fuel pump is vacuum that helps pull fuel from tank into pump then to carburetor. Hope this helps.
Anymore questions you may contact me by phone 831-578-4034 im in California time zone. Thanks wade

the tines off the shaft and there should be a bolt on the side to put grease in if that does not work you will need to replace worm drive and gear

IF connecting that one hot wire to the pto made it engage then you either have a broken/cut/bad connection/wire to the pto or the switch is bad.
What you did by using the hotwire to the pto is bypass all the wiring and the switch for the pto.
You can determine if it's the switch real quick if it only has two connections/wires to the switch. Pull the switch, remove the wires and touch them together, after you have the mower in the condition under which the pto would engage. If the pto engages it's the switch for sure.
Take all the proper safety precautions. Don't let the wires touch anything else.

Check if the small clamp that holds the cable to the engine is tight. The entire cable may be moving with the throttle rather than just the wire inside the cable.

if it is blowing gas out you may want to check the flywheel key and valves. sounds like something is out of time or valves are not working properly.

Sounds like the carby float or needle valve is leaking. Remove carby float bowl, clean and check.

Check and make Shure that it is firing on both cylinders
your can pull plug wires one at a time if the engine speed don't change when you pull the plug that side is not working it also could be your fuel shut off cylinder on the bottom of the carb
