Backfiring, no starts, the pull cord snapping back violently, and oil leaks are all signs that your shear key is damaged. If you’ve had a blade strike, then it’s very likely you need to watch this video. The good news is a shear key only costs a few dollars.

Before working on your mower, be sure to remove the plug wire to prevent accidental starting; see “Repair Safety Video.”
