My friend's pull start line snapped a while back and I had an extra aluminum pull starter laying around so I let him use it, well now I got a pocket bike that was missing one and have commandeered it back.
So I went to re-string his pull start and it was just h#ll.
Turns out the spring came undone which I tried to fix. Grease everywhere, just a mess.
So I figured out how to fix the spring by myself and got it to hook and had it up and running, or so I thought.
The spring exploded after using it around 7 times and the bolt came loose which I know I had tightened.
The problem is that I have no clue how to properly re-do the starter pawl assembly. I believe I can get the spring to catch properly, but there is a black piece that just sits in the pawl under the spring that can go in either way and neither seems right.

ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
PICTURES TOO!
I have a standard 47-49cc cag starter for you info junkies cause I know you'll ask.
P.S. I searched the site which yielded no useful results.

Forget that plastic Cog, get a new starter cover, metal with a metal Cog.

Those are more expensive than I care to dish out just to do the same thing.
I only have one aluminum one because I got it for cheap.

Yeah, Dave's $9 alum starter covers, I have a few extras red ones the last color they had, plus I have a few new plastic covers w/ alum cogs. They won't work on my 15:1 B/B engines very long, there setting in a box.

I don't even think I paid $9 for my grey one.
We'll see if I can fix the one we have, if not we'll be looking to buy one.

Figured it out.
Put it together with new grease and loctite.
The action seems a lot better than the first time.
