Toro Snow Blower CCR Powerlite

I have a Toro Snow Blower, CCR Powerlite 3HP, model 38170, eng mfg unknown

I have a problem pulling the recoil starting rope. It may pull fine 2 - 3 times but then it will snap in your hands wanting to take your fingers off or breaking your wrist. At first I thought it had something to do with the recoil but then on second thoughts I am inclined to believe there is a problem with the fly wheel maybe being able to develop that much power in the recoil cable?

Comments please

If it is trying to rip the rope out of your hand the flywheel key is probably sheared this cab happen when the engine stops abruptly so you must remove the flywheel to check it. To lock the engine so you can remove the nut holding the flywheel remove the spark plug, move the piston to the bottom of the stroke and load the cylinder with a small rope like starter rope leaving a little hanging out, when the piston tries to compress the rope the engine is locked and nothing gets broke. Have a good one. Geo
