Default Sullivan start cone...?

My Sullivan starter cone seems to be out of round now. When you put it on a spinner it bounces off pretty quick because the cone is out of round. By out of round I mean I measured it at almost a 1/4" in a full circle.

When I took the nut off holding it on I couldn't get it off - Does it screw off or is it pressed on?

Yes, the nut is just a locknut. I had to use some needle-nose vice grips to get mine on/off. Then grab the shaft and unscrew the hub.

If you replace it, get one of the metal hubs. They work better. Also the blue cones (neoprane?) work better.

Thanks it was the end of a long day when I got around to looking at it. I've been hand flipping a while but got a new engine and it's tight so I thought I'd hit it with the starter and pow it jumps bad.

Wonder how it got so out of round tho.

Oh no. You don't want neoprene which is hard. You want the silicone rubber inserts which are soft. The color is a function of the size you need. Go to www.sullivanproducts.com/
