Weed Eater Flywheel Problems

I have a Weed Eater FeatherLite 18 cc (no model #). I took apart to clean it all out and when I put it back together my flywheel will only circulate half way either way. I asked a lawn and garden place and they said the fly wheel should circulate all the way around. I was wondering if you need the spark plug hooked up and gas in it for it to go all the way around. The pull cord is okay except when I put it on the flywheel only half way around. Any suggestions? Thanks for any replys.

something is not installed right. its supposed to go all the way around regardless if theres gas or a sparkplug. the fact it won't go all the way round with the pull rope means something is installed wrong.

May have some carbon trapped on top of the piston, keeping the engine from making a compete revolution.

Just a thought....
