Please help with some advice on my Echo Shred'n'vac ES2100 - Model Type 1E - Blower. It was running fine when I noticed a screw mounting the side handle was missing. Before installing a new screw, I decided to take the handle off to remove rust and repaint. The four removed screws also secure the starter rope assembly, so it was set aside while painting the handle. I also removed the spark plug, added a little oil to the cylinder, and replaced the plug. When I put the handle and starter rope assy. back in place, the rope had a very short pull. Thinking maybe the rope needed to be extended when reassembled, or I had missed some type of indexing or mechanical assy. step, I took the rope off again. At that time, I found the part (X) with the cupped metal wings (don't know what to call it) that the inside of the rope assy. mates to, would only turn back and forth maybe 180 degrees or less. I turned it to allow the rope to pull through that limited range of motion. Making sure the rope assy and the plastic lever in part X were in correct position, I put it back together again. When the rope would not pull much, I took it off again and was going to try installing with the rope extended. However, I then found part X would not turn at all - even with the spark plug out. That does not make sense and I do not have a parts manual, so HELP. My skill at turning the simple into complex has reared its ugly head again.
