If that is the case, then disassembly will be required. That is the only way to fix it. If you choose to do so, here are the instructions:
Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 (Star bit or Torx head) screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a hammer and a dull flat-blade chisel or a small piece of wood unless there are bolts. then use a wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers and a good flat-blade screwdriver. Post back if needed.

Take the spark plug out and see if it still hard to pull, if not it might have been the cylinder was flooded.

If you trying to pull the starter to start it doesn't pull out


Hi, sometimes the recoil rope gets a little tangled inside the housing if the cord is allowed to snap back after pulling. You need to undo the screws that hold the recoil on the motor and inspect the rope inside. If you cannot pull the rope freely while it is detached, then the problem lies with the recoil. In this case try to find the tangled cord and undo it. Test that the coil works before reinstalling it. It should work fine. If you pull the recoil while it's detached and it moves freely, then the problem lies with the engine itself. This would indicate a seizure and requires a complete tear-down and rebuild. Good luck.

Pull cord will not recoil. Torsion spring seems bent but not sure of what the problem is. Thanks Milan


recoil springs are hooked on each end one locks into spool one ou tside inside hooks to rewind housing. more than likely one end broke off.sometimes can rebend but spring steel is very brittle or may have to replace spring. hope this helps
