Lawnboy pull-start pulley: 1 or 2 piece?
Lawnboy 21, Model: 8237
serial no.: 9499348
Regarding this part:
#45 609457 PULLEY-STARTER S
The pull start does not pull out smoothly; it feels as though there's resistance (other than normal engine compression).
Sometimes it returns, sometimes it does not,sometimes only partially. (The engine seems to move freely enough)
I opened it, cleaned away any debris, lubed it up which improved it but not enough. When trying to get a little oil onto the spring itself, I noticed that the plastic pulley that the cord wraps onto (see 609457 above) is in two pieces. Is it supposed to be?
If it's supposed to be one piece this could be the problem. The only other way I can see to confirm it is to disassemble, probably springing that spring which I do not want to do!
Might anyone here know?
