And they play devil's advocate with your hands and fingers!!!!! That's the worst part in my book!!

i hate the rort start.

the first i went to srart my truck, the metal piece in the started snaped into 20 piecse.

i got a new roto start thing anf a week later, the same thing happened.

when i finially decided to put a pull starter on, i have had no problems since. but the drive hear ni my diff , the bearing in the middle of it keeps on coming out. will i need to get a new gear of bearing.

i also think that i need a new diff case cause the one of the mounting screws that holds the break assembly on can twist out by its self.

Pullstarters and Roto Starters are the worst methods in my opinion. Using a Starter box is the only way. It might be a little more expensive ($80) but it's worth it.
