Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. So to start your engine, the procedure is the following. With the key in the on position, push the key in 3-4 times, and you should hear a ticking sound with every push. THat is the primer solenoid. If that does not sound then that is the problem with the starting. After pushing in the key , pull up the throttle lever or in your case most probably you have to push the button to apply throttle only and try to start. If the engine is hard to start with this procedure, i suggest you start by cleaning the carbs and have a compression test of all cylinders. They should be around 100 psi.
If you require further assistance let me know.
ok what about the teeth of the flywheel? have you checked if maybe you have some damaged teeth or worn?
I think the problem is from there then as if the starter will find a free part it will disengage
