I've heard that it is near impossible to get the spring back in and its best just to buy a new one.

You might get more replies to this if it is in one of the Nitro forums, so I'm going to move it over there.

I don't know much about pull starts myself.

And for future reference, don't ever, ever, ever make the same post in multiple forums.

$15. Not bad for the trouble that it would be to get that spring back in.

that is totally not TRUE! i unwound the spring once and spend 10 mins putting it back together! it takes practice when your dealing with the spring!!
