Maybe you are putting the one-way in backwards. Did you use a new pull starter. The new one should have retracted. There's a coil spring inside that makes it retract and if it's bound up you'll have to take it apart, but I've done and it sucks.

If you had the engine apart, you might have not slide the crank all the way back in and it could be jamming the pull starter.

If you look at the cost of bandaids for the blisters you will get on your fingers and the agrivation, the starter box is the way to go. get rid of the pull start and you will also get more power out of your engine. And it will give you more options for engines that you can run. I know it sucks that you have to spend more $$ for a starter box, but in the long run, it is a very good investment.
