starter clutch jamed, breaking the starter pully.
pulled cover, replaced all parts needed. you have to make sure you wind up the starter spring enough so when you let the rope retract it returns all the way in. and if you pull the seal off the starter clutch, old part. watch out for ball bearings to drop. I couldn't believe that parts were still available for my 42 year old pincor generator. I almost junked it, now it's back in service running great. thanks for being there.
