Toro 1132 pull starter

Hello,

So I was brought to this site through Google and thought perhaps somebody could help. My pull start cord recently broke and so I went ahead and replaced it. During that time I thought I would go ahead and replace the spring which retracts the spring. I reinstalled everything but the cord will not pull. The strange thing is that the snowblower will start without the pull start installed using the electric start. To further explain everything I have a little video showing the issue.

That sound is normal, should spin one way and lock up in the direction the pull cord spins the motor. the ball bearings lock into slots to turn the motor then free wheel after starting.

I am thinking since it is bound up only when installed that either the center is not seated correctly in the recoil or there is something in the way under the recoil by the spring and it is sitting too far towards the motor.

The upper holes for the shroud are oblong. bolt it on with the upper bolts loose. then pull the shroud as far away from the motor as you can and snug them down

Take that thing you were turning in the vid off i do not remember what it is called. Briggs has a removal tool for that app. But a pipe wrench will work. Someone will have to hold the flywheel for u. One of those steel balls is getting hung up. The best bet is just to get a new one. The other part you fixed that works ok??? Take the plug boot off before you do that!!! Let me know how it goes.

Wow, thanks for the replies. Powershift93, I ordered the part and hope to fix it later this week.
A few moresnowblower newbie questions:

Do many have issues with their snow blower wanting to lift on one side during normal operation? I adjusted the skid plates and replaced the blade when I purchased this a year ago so I have nothing to compare it with. If it helps I am on pavement, no gravel.

Last question (I hope), when I purchased it the shifter was broke so obviously I purchased springs, the wonderful plastic replacement parts, etc. The repair was pretty straight forward and I regained functionality of all gears, but it does not shift into reverse very easily. What I mean is that the shifter slides easily into the reverse gear slots but the transmission does not always engage. I thought it was the cable so I adjusted the tension, but this did not improve the situation. Is there a common part that seems to fail on these units for the reverse gear?

Thanks.

Unhappy

Well I replaced the overrunning clutch, hooked everything back up. I triple checked everything was put back together properly, everything looked good.
It still would not pull.

I decided to see if I could turn the engine over slowly by hand/wrench with spark plug removed and the pull start removed. It won't budge. I'm guessing the engine is locked up. Even with a large crescent wrench and a breaker bar it would not turn. I'm assuming that I will have to either buy a new engine or just get an entirely new snow blower.
