Default pull start recoiling slowly or not at all. any ideas.

I have just replaced the pull start on my .12ss due to it breaking, now when i use the pull start, it will not recoil itself. if i take the glow plug out it recoils itself but does it slower than normal.

any idea what this could be, do you think the one way bearing may have broke?

sounds like the one-way isnt letting go when it should. sounds like it is turning the engine backwards (or at least trying to) when you let go. i wouldnt run it til you get it sorted out, that could get messy. try a new bearing, or at least take it out and inspect it. you can tell if its working by turning it on the starter crank wth your fingers
