You can rewind the spring. Kind of tricky and will take a few tries your first time. Just dont loose a finger! lol

Wind the spring onto the metal piece. #3 In the picture posted.

Hook the spring on, start from the outside of #3 and work your way in. Dont let go of the spring until you are completely done though or it will all unravel.

When you are done the spring will just hold itself in there. Then add it to the case. If there is room, you can pull the rope through and wind the spring in the case. If not you have to take the rope out and wind the spring up, then attach the rope and let the spring go. It should suck the rope in then.


Hope this makes some sense to you. Like i said it takes a few tries the first time to get it right.

Good Luck!!

depending on the recoil housing on how big it is, sometimes i put the center of the spring in place, and just work my way out.

other times i have used a large flat head screw driver, clamped the housing to the bench, lock the center in place, and then just start twisting the screw driver.

no matter what way you do it its a bear. the biggest thing is to use some long clamps to hold the housing to the bench, then you have two hands to put on the spring.

not sure if it works on sleds been a while since i did one, but on small 5 horse briggs engines, you can nail to nails ina board about and inch apart and hook the sping on one nail and wrap arong the other ones then lift the spring off and slide it onto the recoil piece, or just take a rag and wipe it down
