Tecumseh HH60 70's recoil problem

skyler25June 12, 2010

Hi, I am new to the group and glad it is here. I am having a problem with the black Philips screw that holds the silver cap over the starting pawl or dog. I am having carb problems so I get kick back which puts a strain on everything including me. The screw has a spring under it and a spring pin with some plastic slid over it. The pin drives right into the center of the screw after tightening it. It keeps coming loose after several pulls. Is there something missing? What could cause this? The dog comes out ok when pulling and retracts ok too. I'll move on to other mysteries with this engine later. Thanks for any help.SkylerOkeefe9

The pin doesn't need to be there. If the screw comes loose, a small amount of loctite carefully placed on the screw threads will help.
