Need Help Re-Assembling Briggs & Stratton 3.5 HP Engine

I have a 3.5 HP Briggs & Stratton Engine Model 92502. The rewind spring was broken and I replaced it. Before I figured out what I was doing I disassembled too much - including a screen, ball bearings and some piece with a square shaft that sits on top of the ball bearings. Now when I try to start the engine, something in there isn't right (no surprise). I think it's because of the position of the ball bearings and the piece on top. Can anyone tell me the best way to reassemble this? I think I'm close. Also, as I put this back together, should I put any additional lubrication on the pieces that are apart?
Thanks for any help.

Take the cover off, Remove the square piece and the ball bearings. Put a couple drops of oil inside the larger round hole in the center of the square piece. Wipe a little oil on the end of the shaft with your finger where the square piece slides onto.

Now slide the square piece onto the shaft and give it a couple spins by hand, Drop a ball in each slot next to the square piece. Don't add any oil/lube etc. to the balls or that area, Set the cover back on lightly tapping it to make sure it goes on all the way. Set the screen back on with the small screws and your back in business.....


Good Luck

Thanks much!
