Snowblower won't pull start

have a craftsman snow blower that i am currently rebuilding. right now it will only start when power cord is hooked into it. it won't pull start. when it does start with the cord it takes a few seconds of cranking it before it turns over. maybe the pull start isn't moving the gas properlly? i am at a loss here. problem is when/if the blower shuts off (hopefully won't now that i have rebuilt the carb), i have to push it all the way back to my garage to start again. any suggestions as to where i might start???>>??

You need to post the engine Mfg, Model, Type, Code etc. then someone will be able to help. You have asked, how long is a rope. Have a good one. Geo

So, have you rebuilt the carburetor? Your post isn't very clear. The three areas of concern, engine related, are: Compression; Ignition; And, carburetion.
