Hi guys, I have a vintage ariens with a 7hp Tecumseh. I tried to blow about 6 in of very wet, heavy snow and it bogged down and stalled. Afterwards it would not start and has no spark. I’ve been reading about this flywheel key breaking under these circumstances resulting in no spark. If I take the plug out and pull the manual start rope the piston goes up and down. Does that mean that the key is intact? I really don’t want to buy a gear puller if I can avoid it. Thanks for any help.
