Tecumseh LV195EA. Flywheel/keycrankshaft don't match.

I pick up this mower used. The original flywheel had been replaced previously. I assumed the person repairing it just got the wrong flywheel, so I ordered one here. Same thing! Flywheel has a wider notch for the key, and the crankshaft has a narrow slot. The new key that came with the flywheel fits the crankshaft but the flywheel slot is twice as wide? Should I be looking for a different key?

    I think I saw a timing key that actually was a T shape which if such a key exists, would solve my dilemma!

    Tecumseh did use a couple of funky T shaped keys and they are not interchangeable. The wrong one will fit but the timing will be off sufficiently that the engine will not start. I don't have IPL's so cannot look it up for you.
