does this part come with both halves and a new spring?
Question: Starter Assembly

ediebb

the problem i am having with my cs30 is that the spring ( not part #41) pulled out of part #40 ( it had a straight part that comes up and through part #308374001 is bent and pulled out...I bent it back and reassembled only to have it bend and pull out again after 3 or 4 pulls) does this spring come already attatched to part #308374001 or do i have to order it seperate? and if so may i have the part number and cost so that I may order it with the starter pulley...i figure get both new ( as spring is prob weaker now that it has been bent a cople times) and solve the problem all at once. Thank you and I await your response.

    Teeth on it wore crazy fast....maybe 20 pulls then it started skipping so I took it apart to see that the plastic was rounded over already.
