so today, got home and me and a friend were driving, my Fs ran good all day,
Then we fixed his suspension arm. then i went and started mine, and the cord wont recoil. I took it apart and rebuilt it, and still wont work, any ideas? or any other ways of starting it?

hmm sounds like you got either the one way bearing in backwords. or something in side the pull start


is it hard to pull?

No, nothing recoils, not the bearing or the pull start.

It is still a spring. It is what pulls the cord back in...

yeah about 1/2 of that was broken off then.

I just yanked it HARD a bunch of times and it seems fine, for now, ill eventaully get a new one, but i guess ill see how this one holds up for now?
