Briggs and Stratton Recoil Trouble and Gas tank
I have a chipper/shredder with a B&S motor model 192402-1015-E1. It hasnt been working in a few years due to rodent damage on the wiring. Than has all been repaired and carb has been cleaned and rebuilt.
Im having trouble with the recoil starter. The recoil starter will rewind the rope when it is off the engine, but when it is attached, it will not. I dont see how it could as the pulley directly slides onto the shaft when it is installed, and has no visible means of disconnecting to rewind the rope.
I cant seem to be able to find any schematics that show anything Im missing.
Also, the gas tank has been damaged to the point of no repair. A new one is $80 plus, thats too much. Anybody come up with any good ideas of making one out of a small gas can? I have been looking for a way to put a leak-proof fuel valve into one.
Im looking forward to hearing any ideas,
