    Yep, flywheel key is intact. I've had the flywheel off 3 or 4 times. I've had the magneto off and found a broken wire. That is why I originally wasn't getting spark.

    Still continuing to mess with this when I have time. I've done a clean and install new gaskets and such in the carb. Still no start though. In playing around with this, you can feel suction on the carb as it is trying to suck air in. You can also feel air coming out of the exhaust as it turns over. Since I've been messing with this, now whenever I turn the fuel on and turn the engine over fuel comes out of a hole in the fuel pump. I've order a rebuild kit for the fuel pump. It should be here sometime this week.

    Mine is about a '72 or '73. It has the 12 HP Tecumseh. I haven't messed with it in a while, but with starting fluid I will get occasional "fires" but sounds like the timing is off. I haven't pulled the flywheel off yet to get a new woodruff key.
