Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Sounds like the timing may be off. Check the flywheel to crankshaft key, as it times the engine.

THANKS. Looks like I'll need a strap wrench just to get the fan off.
From the Maint Manual I can't tell if I need a puller or not, but I found one at Harbor Freight. The strap wrench they had was way too short, though. I'll let you know if the crankshaft key is the issue.

OK, thanks.
