Briggs&Stratton engine trashing starter recoils
B&S engine on a log splitter that is trashing starter recoils. Most commonly the dog ears and elements holding them in. It will over extend them so that the stops are not useable and then tends to damage the rest of the parts until I have to replace the whole assembly. This last time I got one start out of it. The engine doesn't seem to pull hard, and started on the second pull on a cold start (had not ran for a couple weeks in the summer time). I'm tired of getting one to maybe a dozen starts out of a recoil and have to fix or replace it. I remember in years past seeing a pully that required a manual winding of the cord each time it was pulled, and would release the rope so it did not wrap up. Is option available? Model 215802-0114e1
Thank You in advance!
