Here is what i tried so far: - Drained carb and tank and added Fresh gas - Chnaged plug - rebuilt carb Anyone think it's a flywheel key? Other ideas? any help would be appreciated. thanks

Loosened the gas cap. didn't make a difference. thanks Pulled the flywheel, key is in one piece. Crankshaft seems to have alot of play in it, about 1/16 to 1/8 in. Should it move that much?
