no, just the pull start... take the center bolt out and check the spring underneath the roller. if its off, rewind it into the spindle, and rerwind the rope back onto the roller.

better clean up that gas spill before you stain your driveway.

Going as fast as I can lol.

The spring isint your conventional spring btw, and watch your face when you take the center nut out, if it is dislodged from the spindle, it could whip out at your face.

I GTG, my buddy just picked up a stage 3 racing pipe kit for his BMW 328... Going to help install.. GL with the pullstarter.

I have no idea lol. And I only had one good battery and everytime it died I'd take it autozone and get it charged. I've read people making their own charger and I want to try that. Is your charger with the three prongs?
