    If you need to hold in a lever to start it, it could be that that lever gas gotten unattached. My friend has a mower and you needed to hold in the bar to engage the blades to start it, and since that bar was not working, it wouldn't start. I knew that was why because when I pressed in the bar there was no resistance.

    The "bar" is usually referred to as the bale.....

    This is connected to the throttle cable, which can get stretched out or the spring gets stretched and might need replacement - all in the handle assemby.

    The pull rope not giving resistance should be a pretty straightforward problem to look into. Take off the bonnet and check the pulley assembly.

    Ok, the housing that covers the pull cord is held down with rivets. Is it ok to take it off.
