Question about Garden
If you get this the first time get a lottery ticket fast.
take the recoil off and apart, check to see if the spring end is broken off. (sometimes you can bend a new hook into it but it will usually break because its hardened).
buy the way, Usually you can wind a rope around what the recoil connects to, to start the engine at this point.
take the handle off the end of the rope and wind it around the drum/spool leaving a few inches hanging out.
hook both ends of the spring to their stops and wind the spring tighter about four turns, then thread the end of the rope through the hole and pull on the rope and test the recoil. Don't lt it go.
pull the rope out and put a "marline hitch" in it or use a visegrip pliers to hold the rope out and tie the handle back on.
if the rope looks fuzzy most all hardware stores have it.
