It may be necessary to remove the recoil handle on some engines to allow
removal from aircraft. To do this tie a slip knot in the recoil rope
immediately in front of the recoil. Undo or cut the recoil rope at the
handle. Disconnect the ignition suppressor box wires, black and red from
the ignition coil wire plugs, blue/red -blue/black. Remove the four 10 mm
socket head bolts and lock washers which hold the rewind starter to the
engine. The recoil will come free.
Remove snap ring (15), lock spring,(14 (13) circlip and pawl (11) from
recoil starter. Remove the rope sheave from the recoil. Place a blade
screw driver into the hole where the recoil rope exits the sheave.
When the screwdriver comes up against the key clamp push until the key
moves releasing the rope.
Inspect recoil spring, rope and mechanism for damage worn or broken parts,
replace as necessary.
To ensure long trouble free operation of the recoil occasional maintenance
is suggested. This maintenance involves light lubrication of the recoil
rewind starter spring with low temperature grease. Plus lubrication of the
pawl lock spring with Molykote G-N paste.
Tie a knot in recoil handle end of the recoil rope. Install sheave into
starter housing, ensuring notch in sheave engages in the spring hook.
Rotate sheave assembly counter clockwise until spring is fully compressed.
While holding spring under tension. Release one turn, and align hole in
sheave with recoil housing rope inlet.. Install the other end of the rope
through housing and into sheave, until it passes through window in sheave.
Install key clamp into window with teeth pointing so that they bite into
rope when a pulling pressure is applied. Lock key clamp. Release tension
and recoil rope will be rewound into housing. Reinstall pawl, pawl lock,
circlip, prior to installation of locking spring lubricate with Molykote
G-N paste, install spring, install lock ring.
If convenient reinstall recoil handle. Pull rope out tie slip knot at
recoil, t burn end of rope , install rope into handle tie knot in rope.
release slip knot. Install recoil on engine in reverse order or removal.
The use of multi-purpose grease may result in improper starter operation.
