Looking at muffler,carb & starter in pics,eng is a tecumseh,it also appears that coil,points/condenser(if eng has)are located under flywheel.

In addition you may have an 18w alternator stator under flywheel,in one pic blk wire coming out of flywheel backplate & going up handle could be for a key sw/stop sw on handle cross bar or an 18w sealbeam lite as I have on mine,I don't know which you have on yours.

In one pic of flywheel cover/recoil starter(bottom view) there are two small holes,this is normally where id tag is located either tag never put on,lost/removed or may have been a decal that's long gone.

thanks for looking and keeping me in the loop. It does indeed have a headlight.

I guess I"m in for pulling hte flywheel to see what can be seen.

I was thinking of timing, but on a thrower, how would it get off? There"s shear pins, belts to keep the crankshaft from getting jarred and shearing a key?

I am stumped on this, but appreciate all the help.

The ign timing is determined by position of flywheel on crankshaft,the shaft key on crankshaft holds timing of flywheel & ign,if shaft key Z bent or sheared & flywheel moves on crank this will change ign timing,2-3 degrees in either direction(retarded or advanced)and eng may not/won't run due to plug fireing either too early/late.This is why I said to check flywheel key in another reply.

Forgot to add,flywheel key is made of soft aluminum not steel,due to sheer age,vibration,causeing eng to stop suddenly by overloading blower,something caught in auger/impeller or a loose flywheel nut all of the above take their toll on key over the yrs.

I hope you don"t mind responding to my questions...

I am going to pull the flywheel and am going to post some pictures.

Again, thanks for all your help.
