Default Pull Start Help!!!!!

What does it mean when i pull my pull start and it comes out clean without any compression what so ever. Do i need a new pull start or is it the motor?
Oh, and is it possible to use a bump box or do you have to buy something for the motor that will allow it to use a bump box.
lmk thanks

It's probably your one-way bearing at the back of the motor. Take the pullstart off, and clean it. It only will work one way hence the name, so make sure you don't reinstall it backwards. You can use a box start with no mods to the motor unless you hate the look of the pullstart on there, then you have to find a backplate.
