I've seen many "mower won't start" posts (I even posted similar 1 yr. ago!) BUT this is a unique circumstance. Toro 20017 Personal Pace / Tecumseh LEV 80-120 Engine. 12 Years old - but still works fine, till now. Was mowing 2nd time this spring. Walking along fence, wheel gut stuck in rut. I tried to lift out but engine stalled. Has not started since. Spark plug and filter new and clean. I did an exterior carburetor clean (sprayed cleaner into hoses exterior holes, wire cleaned holes in lower bolt, but not comfortable taking it apart!) Still no success. What may have happened? (P.S. - Before cleaning I found a tiny spring and clip sitting below the carburetor area, image attached - that can't be good!) Thanks in advance!
