Re: Intek 6HP engine jerks back ripping cord out of your hand during starting.
This is what I found this morning, The spring that goes around the ACR had slipped and wasn't returning it to the home position, I could slip it back over the arm but it barely hooks and I suspect the tip has broken off. In the picture of the Cam Spring you can just make out the tip of the spring as a bright spot on the back arm.
The Valve clearance is off, the exhaust is at .009 and the intake is at .030
I'm assuming that you can't get just the spring and will have to replace the cam, any chance anybody knows the right part number for the cam ?
The engine model is 121607-0218-E1, Production number 98062656
