    This may be a dumb question, but I have never had a small outboard, My other boat has a 150. But i just bought a 2 h.p. evenrude, 1972 or 73, for my small jon boat. it runs great but on sat. the pull cord broke. Is it just like replacing one on a lawn mower or is there anything else i need to be aware of? thanks for any info

    You will need a diag. of that recoil so you can see how it is put together to do this. Do you have a manuel? If you don't I'll look thru my papers and see if I have one.

    i've replaced the rope on some engines older than a 72 and best i can remember they were not much more sophisticated than a lawnmower recoil...

    No, I don't have a manual. I did just go down and check it, it is a 72 model. thanks

    I just finished tinkering with it, and I fixed it!
