    My pull cord broke so as usual I put new rope on, rewound the starter assembly counterclockwise and pulled some rope out and it didn't get pulled back in. When I rewind it, it just keeps going and doesn't stop like they normally do when there wound all the way. Any ideas or suggestions? I've never been stumped by a starter recoil assembly before.

    these recoil systems are Very simple for some people.

    I seem to be one of the lucky ones.

    it's sounds like the spring is NOT catching on the tab. the Plastic wheel where the rope winds around should have a notch in it where the spring will catch.

    Good Luck
