    We just replaced the ring gear on our mower and now it wont start at all the place that sold us the ring gear told us we probly put the keyway in wrong It only fits one way what do they mean We would have had it fixed by them but they said 4-6 weeks and cannot let the lawn grow that long

    If you didn't get the flywheel tight enough all it takes is one revolution to sheer the key,Recheck the key and torque the flywheel to 85ft. Lbs.
