,THIS GENERATOR IS VERY HARD TO GET AT AND I AM GUESSING THAT TO GET AT THAT NUT I NEED TO REMOVE A BUNCH OF THINGS AS THE STARTER IS AT THE VERY BACK AND I CANNT SEE IT . SO I WILL TRY TO GET A SOCKET ON THE FAN WHICH I CAN FEEL AND TRY TO TURN THAT . IS THIS ADVISABLE . YOUR ANSWER IS VERY GOOD . WILL TRY IT AND WAIT FOR A RESPONSE FROM YOU . THANK YOU
