Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Did you notice if your rope was hard to pull, prior to you removing your starter unit? If not, first remove your spark plug, then try pulling your rope again. Let's see if your rope pulls easier, or if it still pulls hard. If your rope still pulls hard, I would remove the starter unit again, just to see if something is out of place, or misaligned. While you have your starter unit off, turn your flywheel by hand, to see if it turns hard, or if it turn as it normally would.
Before turning your flywheel by hand, re-insert your spark plug. We can continue from here. Thanks!
Thanks for your response. I agree. Pull just the pull starter, then try turning your flywheel by hand. This will be an excellent starting point. Process of elimination...
Hello Keith. This is just a follow up, to see if all went well for you. Thanks!
