Starter cup failed from a manufacturers incorrect assembly.
Upon disassemble of my Poulan P338PT starter, which had less than 10 hours of use, I'd noticed that the plastic "starter cup assembly" had melted on to the engine starter end of the crankshaft. I called Poulan's Customer Service and asked why this happened with so few hrs. of use, and received the response " just buy another cup assembly." at a ridiculous price from them. So, I searched the internet and found ereplacementparts. com. It was not until I studied ereplacementparts Poulan factory parts schematics online that I discovered a small thin washer (that was never installed from Poulan) goes between the crankshaft and the starter cup assembly. To prevent it from contacting the crankshaft and melting it. Thanks to ereplacementparts I figured out what went wrong and ordered the parts that saved me from another break down. Thanks again.

    I had my recoil spring come out and in trying to get it back together was a pain. It worked for a little while but I had more problems. I just went ahead and bought the replacement kit, so easy and a good price to.
