Default Re: About Pull Start- Potential Problem.

Walter sent me a pair of pull start units to inspect.

One had a stamped sheet metal driver, the other was cast Aluminum.

The sheet metal piece just barely cleared the screws, the cast one wasn't even close.

The pull starter that came with the sheet metal driver worked great until the grommet for the cord popped out. I didn't realize the grommet had come out of the housing. The edges of the casting are so sharp that the cord shredded after a few pulls. No big deal, I put new cord in and made a nylon grommet that will stay put.
