t. It fits in but stops about 5mm short from all the way.

You probably have the counter weights from the shaft hitting the bottom of the piston skirt. To remedy this, you will have to pull the piston/connecting rod off of the shaft, turn it around and install it the other way. If you notice, the piston’s skirt is longer on one side than the other in most cases.
How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

If the pawls do not retract then the springs need to be replaced. Remove the center bolt and cap, remove ratchet pulls, use pliers to pull out the old springs, then install the new springs and re-install the pawls. Reinstall the center bolt and cap and the starter back onto the engine.
The most common reason for the cord refusing to rewind is a broken or worn out recoil spring. This tiny spring hooks onto the pulley and is stretched out when you pull the cord; when you let go the spring is meant to snap back to its original position.
A clogged fuel filter is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall.
If the trimmer engine runs, but the trimmer head does not spin when the throttle is engaged, the clutch may be broken. The clutch prompts the drive shaft to start rotating once a certain rotational speed is reached and allows the engine to run without always rotating the drive shaft.
Trimmer line does tend to dry out over time and becomes more brittle. Storing it or soaking it in water will help reduce line breakage and make the line more flexible. Be sure to deplete your supply of last year`s line before you purchase new line and begin using it.
A dirty spark plug
If the central electrode is covered in dirt this can short out the spark so that it won`t jump to the outer electrode, which will mean you will struggle to start the whipper snipper – you can clean the dirt off with a tooth brush, or small wire brush.
When the rope`s grip is pulled, the rope uncoils, tensions the spring, engages the clutch and turns the crankshaft, spinning it to crank or start the engine before the end of the pull stroke. The running of the engine then disengages the clutch.

Broken pullcord the pull cord on my cub cadet push mowersnaped and broken and we put it back in and know it wont wind back in
Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that) and I had to resecure that first, then wind it up before making the knot.. I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then.
Pull cord is difficult to pull after third pull becomes stuck but will turn if pull hard repeats every three to four pulls.

Broken pull cord
You have to take four allen screw out of the plastic that holds the engine on. There is also one by the spark plug that needs to come out. Once the engine is loose, you have to unplug one wire and unscrew the other. Then the engine should come off. Then loosen the two allen screws holding the pulley in and it will come out.

Take it apart as you did before. Look for whatever it is binding. Did you rewind the rope so there is a good amount of tension? If you didn’t, then do that . Good luck, Lee
