Locked Up Tecumseh

Got a Toro with a Locked up Tecumseh 8hp Engine. Couldn't Budge it with a Pipe Wrench, so decided to part it out. Turns Out the Teeth from the Starter Broke, and then Stuck to the Flywheel Magnet, Jamming Between the Coil and the Flywheel Magnet. Engine is Good! Hard to photograph but here's the Teeth.

that's a new one for me, so will you still part it out? or fix it up? Which Toro model?

Sounds like that ol' "Jackmels Luck" (like with all those free machines last year...), has played out again!
Don't tell me you got this one for free too.....
You must have some kind of extraordinary karma....
