In order to start an engine needs: -

A good cranking speed or equivalent.
The right amount of fuel being delivered into the combustion chamber.
A good spark at the right time.

As your engine doesn't start, clearly there is at least one of those items that is absent or unsatisfactory. There are a couple of things you didn't mention - you didn't say the spark plug was getting wet with fuel and you didn't say you had checked the spark...

These need to be adjusted using a Tachnometer however to get the unit started. Turn the "L" screw in until it lightly seats then back out 1 1/2 turn. Do the same for the "H" screw. This should get the unit running then it can be fine tuned.

This question has been asked before without anyone providing a link to a manual. My search only turned up 3 fraudulent sites claiming to have a manual, for sale, but my years of experience with similar sites made me avoid getting deceived.

The free youtube video below has a comment that it helped someone who had a Nelco 344c, so it may be of help to you.

The answer you seek is impossible to answer except by "who knows!"

The recoil starter is self contained and engages with a shaped boss bolted to the flywheel - assuming everything is original and correctly assembled it should fit without problems, though I usually find a couple of test pulls during the tightening process helps everything bed together.

If it only binds in the last half turn of the retaining bolts a sort of temporary cure would be to fit a flat washer between the starter unit and the air cowl or other housing.
If the starter needs more standoff than a flat washer can provide there is probably something wrong with the assembly.

The rear wheels are keyed to the axle shafts with a sqaure key, if the last owner forgot to replace one of the keys the axle will just turn in the centre of the wheel and not turn it, because the gearbox has a diff it means neither wheel will turn if either side has the square key missing, pull the wheels off and check the key is there.

Strimmer line is consumed constantly in use either by wear against abrasive surfaces or being snagged against stems and suchlike it can't cut through and so tends to break. With lots of patience a lot of those stems can eventually be cut.

Early strimmer users became fed up with the process of stopping work, upturning the machine and releasing more line and starting over and so in order to maintain sales the bump and automatic feed heads were developed.

You description suggests you are using your low powered grass trimmer for heavier work than it is designed for.

Diesel injection presumably?

Depends on the type of pump - inline or distributor type or individual pumping elements?

In the absence of accurate marks there are various methods that could be employed but all will need manufacturer's data to set the engine to either tdc or to injection point and then to proceed to time the pump to the engine by a method known as "spill timing" for the inline pump or the distributor type of which there are 3 main types, the commonest having a hydraulic governor, uses an adaptor and dial gauge.

Most of these reset by themselves after 3 hrs especially after the first oil change. There's nothing wrong and there's no reset button to push. I hope this helps. Take care.
