Also, you want to be careful when popping the plastic turnie thing out of it's place because of that spring. I got real good at learning how to wind that thing and eventually replaced that too with a weed whacker one.
Hope this helps.
yup that helps. I've had to wind a pull start before and its not fun but it would probably be worth it.
( I'm loving your motorized bicycle smilies by the way)
