Flywheel not turning

When I pull the rope on my briggs 3.5 mower the rope pulls and recoils fine but the flywheel doesn't turn.

The nylon gear inside the rewind appears to be fine.


Turns out it was the starter clutch. Even though I am a do it yourselfer I found it easy and cheap to replace.

The starter clutch just screws in so I used a 2X4 to brace the flywheel and the tapped the starter clutch loose with a hammer.
