wr250fla,

Actally I did not re-tourqe it I just got a socket on it and tightened it back up. The timing must be off cause it will not fire up. Just pops a little.

I'm just guessing that the woodruff key sheared.

Mine did the same. Quit running only popped. It was only a plug. I am not saying it is not a key, I thought mine was. With the stock jetting I had the choke on for so long just to get it to run, I fouled it. ---Mike

Mine just started and when I let it die and tried to hit the starter button it just freewheeled. I opened the access hole and noticed the nut had backed off. I tightend it up and the starter would engage and turn the engine over but wouldn't fire. I guess the timing was affected.
