Default Ice Auger Repair?

I need to fix my Tecumseh Strikemater. Broke the pull cord last year.I attempted to fix it myself and screwed up the recoil spring. Any ideas on where to take it?

I was a small engine mechanic all through college and the secret is to buy a new recoil spring and do it yourself. I too live in HR and have used the Big Tool Box on Holly a number of times. They have great customer service. Just take the model and serial number into them (or call first) and they will get you the spring you need. The spring will be wound tight in a retainer that will allow you to just pop into the spring seat. I've rewound springs in the past and it's just not worth the fight and risk involved.

Once the spring is in, you'll need to wind and load the start cord. It's kinda tough to explain this in writing, so bare with me. Don't do this until the spring is fully seated and the plastic rope housing is fully seated and screwed in. You'll probable see two cutouts in the backside of the piece that rope coils into. You need to fish the rope up into the cutout and turn the spool while loading the spring and not winding the rope. You do this until the starter rope retracts fully. Just be sure that when the starter rope is pulled all the way out it stops because you are at the end of the rope and not that the spring is fully loaded.

If you don't want to attempt it, they will probably stick you at least $25 to put it in.

PM me if you need any additional help.

Tight lines!
