Shindaiwa pull starter

I have an old school Shindy multi tool. It's got the old sideways gas cap. The only thing I can read on the engine tag is the engine model which is s230. Can't read anything else.
The pull start rope broke, so I had the shop fix it yesterday cause I couldn't get one of the screws out. Put a new rope and handle on it. 2nd time starting it, it quit recoiling. I took it apart at the job and put the spring back. 2 more pulls and it popped out again.
Anyone know where I can get a pull start for this? Is it the same as the t230?

It probably just needs the spring itself, they do sell that.

Yes, it is the T230 multitool, S230 being the engine code. A starter for a T230 will work. I usually get my Shindaiwa parts from eReplacementparts.com, but any local Echo / Shindaiwa supplier can order the starter for you, if its not in stock. It does sound like a deformed or broken spring. But could also be the housing or the spool. If you don't know what to look for it'll be simplest to order a new one.

Yea the local shop didn't have it in stock, so we tried fixing the string, then the spring broke or whatever. I think the notch where the sprin goes in the housing is rounded out. Anyway, I ordered one from the shindaiwa parts website. Got a couple of other parts for the multi tool and a few parts including a carb for my eb802rt backpack blower. Prices were actually not bad at all. Pull starter was the same as I was seeing on amazon and he carb was about $40 cheaper than the local dealer. I'll be happy to get these two shindy's going again and have another backpack blower in the arsenal.

Thank you for the input. So the older multi tool is called the t230 or the m230?

Yep, that would be the M230. T230 is a Trimmer and DH230 would be a Dual-sided Hedge trimmer, etc, all with the Shindaiwa S230 engine. They are pretty clear with their designations.

If you ever want to order a new M230 nameplate sticker for it the P/N is 65000-91020. Happy trimming!
