I haven't used my car for about 6 months, I got it out yesterday and went to pull the pull start but there was nothing there but it worked fine when I put it away, any advice what could be wrong would be brilliant, thanks

have you pulled the pull start mechanism? may need to take it off and clean the one way bearing, or the spring may have snapped.

Sounds like the OWB got gummed up and isn't grabbing. That happens if you put them away without running the tank dry then putting some ARO through them before storing. Especially the engines with the OWB inside the engine.
