I had the same problem with my 18 inch Ryobi saw. The problem is the tabs that engage the recoil to the flywheel are of poor quality steel and they bend out of position. The end result is when you pull tyhe rope it just jumps and wont start. Eaven the new parts do the same thing. Simple soultion is remove the recoil starter four screws require a torx bit or a flat screwdriver. after your remove the recoil starter using a pair of pliers bend the two tabs upwards untill they are not quite straight up (about a 80 degree angle be carefull not ot brake the tab off) once you have done this remove the center nut that holds the flywheel on. the silver pins that hold the tabs in position need to be punched out but remember how they go back by doing only one at a time and remember how the spring is installed. Turn the flywheel over and using a punch and hammer remove the pins. Put the tabs in a vise to hold them sucerly clean the steel as best you can on the inside of the bend. Fill the bend with brazing rod or coat hanger if you haven't got any brazing rod avilable. You don't have to com;leatly fill the bend but put enough in there to suport the tabas so they can't bend agin. Reassemble the saw and you're done. Mine works great now, better than new. This problem isn't limited to recon saws only, mine is a new saw and I still had the problem. Good luck herbdogs
