the starter rewind assembly is having issues. But at this point i could care less. the top of the flywheel has an emergency knotch in it to put a knot of a rope in and wrap it around and yank to fire the engine up if your rewind gets messed up. well ive been outside pulling and pulling, :smile2: and adjusting to every which setting with the choke, rich/lean setting, and what not. I dont know very much about motors or boat motors. Just the basics. any ideas on what could be wrong??? :confused2: info: it looks like the carb was rebuilt recently, new gas lines, new pulgs and wires, good gas mixture being applied to engine.
