Default Oh great....

Well it finnally broke. I pulled the pull starter on my 8 port and just fell limp. Wouldnt retract inside. I took it off of the engine, and the wire was all messed up. Nothing seems to be broken though. All i need to do is fit the copper wire back inside the pull starter case, but i cant seem to get it in. Any tips from people who have rebuilt their pull starts?

Yeah, buy a new one...It's a hassle to try and rebuild it.

Default While in your fingers,

Wrap it up and make sure it is in the right direction to pull the starter string in! When you wrap it up or coil it you take the outside end and pull it to tighten the coil and then coil up the extra spring that you pulled and you my have to do this a few times to get it tight enough! Keep in mind that it is kind of hard to hold on to that spring sometimes and try keep it away from your eyes because it is pretty sharp!

Before you do the above rewind the string or it is hard to hold that tightly coiled spring and rewind the string at the same time!LOL I know I tried to do it before!
Anyway that should be all you need to know in order to get the job done!
