Question about Echo CS400 18" Chain Saw
No, you have to connect it at the inner point, then wind the spring around keeping it fairly tight all the time. You will eventually be able to reconnect at the outer point on the spool. Usually, it's best to remove the starter cord from the spool until the spring can be attached. Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind the spring and refit the cord (make sure it is in good condition). Usually best to remove the handle to facilitate the stringing process. Make sure there is enough slack in the spring so that it can be tightened at least 4 turns more (when pulling the starter). Melt the cord ends a little to prevent the knots from pulling out with use. This is something like setting a bear trap, so use care at all times. Good luck!
