lawn mower problems

I have a craftsman 4.5 hp lawn mower model #143.034504. and the pull cord broke. I repaired it but when I pull on cord it doesn't retract back. Did I miss something when putting it back together that would cause it not to retract. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Did you use the right size rope and right length? Using too big rope (diameter)and too long will cause it not to fully retract.
This engine should use #4 rope.
The other thing that can cause your problem is you may need to wind up the spring 1 more turn.
