do a search, we have talked in depth about the pull starter.

i think there is also something in the how to section
Man, Truegrit, you make it too easy on um!! LOL
IF YOU CAN GET IT UP IN THE AIR IT'S EASIER. COME OUT THE BOTTOM BETWEEN YOUR SWING ARM AND YOUR SKID PLATE. DROP IT STRAIGHT DOWN. YOU'LL NEED A LONG EXTENSION FOR A SOCKET TO MAKE IT EASY. DON'T FORGET TO SEAL THE LITTLE PEEP HOLE ON THE BOTTOM. IT'S NOT ON THE RECOIL ITSELF IT'S A NOTCH ON THE ACTUAL MOTOR. ALSO SEAL YOUR PULL ROPE BY PULLING OUT THE ROPE A LITTLE AND PUTTING RTV IN THE HOLE AND LET YOUR ROPE BACK IN. AND LAST SEAL THE TOP OF THE PULL ROPE HANDLE WHERE YOU SEE THE ROPE TIED IN A KNOT.
WHEN I DID MINE I DIDN'T SEAL THE PEEP HOLE ON THE BOTTOM OR THE HANDLE AND IT FILLED WITH MUD AND WATER AND ATE OUT THE RECOIL SEAL. I RECENTLY SOLVED THIS PROBLEM WITH A SEAL PLATE.
GOOD LUCK..... not hard to do
thanks fer yalls input!
