Hi everyone. I have a 1983 Mariner 5hp (the C model to be exact). The recoil spring broke, so i replaced it. Now the issue Im having is that the motor
wont start. When i pull the rope
, it just comes straight out with no resistance at all. The flywheel assembly isnt turning and i cant figure out why. I removed the pawl and lubed it up along with the spindle the spring goes around. But no luck the rope
still just comes straight out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link to the recoil starter diagram.
