    What starter rope do you use? I have to replace mine about every 3 weeks because it keeps breaking and I'm getting tired of it

    Go to your nearest Ace/ True Value and purchase the 1/4" nylon cord by the spool. I have been using this material for years and yet to have any issues.

    replace the whole starter rope/recoil unit on top.
    doesn't matter what engine, the recoil will wear out.
    cheap fix.
    takes a rachet and 5 minutes.
