Rewind a Recoil Spring?

Answer

A recoil starter spring is part of a pull starter used in small engines. With each pull of the starter cord this flat spring will lose tension and sometimes dislodge from its housing and needs to be recoiled in order to work properly. In order to rewind a recoil spring a person must first unmount the starter assembly from the machine. Once this is done remove the recoil spring from its housing and rewind it back onto its spool until it is tightened enough to fit back into its housing. Needle nose pliers, a hex wrench or a Phillips head screw driver might be helpful in keeping the recoil spring from unwinding while trying to place it back into its housing.
