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.

Tool Type:
Trimmer
Parts Used:
Starter Cup Assy - 545188701
Assy-Shroud Rear - 545190701
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Nutdriver, Torx head driver and Allen wrench
Starter cup was worn to point where pull start would not engage and pull chord (Assy-Shroud Rear) assembly would not recoil.
1. Removed Assy-Shroud Rear (total of 7 torx head screws).
2. Used long screwdriver (could be any 6" or longer metal rod) inserted into engine to prevent it from spinning.
3. Removed Starter cup assembly using an allen wrench.
4. Installed new starter cup with allen wrench.
5. Installed new Assy-Shroud Rear with 7 original screws using torx head driver.

Though could have replaced Spring-Starter hub and Hub-Starter only rather than entire Assy-Shroud Rear, the entire Assy was approximately the same cost and it saved effort and insured all parts of the Assy-Shroud Rear assembly were new including Kit-Starter spring and Kit-Rope.
