Default Pull start problem

this is my first post...I got a Volcano s30 for x-mass i started the break-in procedure on the truck and after the 2nd tank of fuel my pull starter wont engage anymore so i cant start it....i did read something about a one way bearing that is slipping....could it be fried just after 2 tanks of fuel?
could use some guidance.

When ever u use a pilull starter u need to only pull it out 6-8inches any more can damage the spring or throw outthat one way bearing.
What u could do is take it off and try to see if can tell whathappen and maybe fix it or, just attach the part that tirns the crank to a drill and do it that way. Ive seen alot of people do that.

Sorry about the bad luck. Ive got a tornado s30 and fortunatly havent had pull start problems. But I had watched video on youtube by alishanmao about how to do everything.
