Default Predator 212cc Starting Problem

I recently purchased a used cart with a Predator 212cc engine. When I got it home, it started, ran fine and then I began to work on front end alignment and rust removal. I lifted the front end while working on it for two days. When I finished, I tried pull starting the engine and it seems as though the compression stopped me from starting it. I removed the spark plug and the engine crank spins freely with no restrictions or bad sounds. After reinserting the plug, it again does not let me pull start it because of what seems like compression. Being novice at this, I would appreciate all the help I can get ? Thanks in advance !
