|Stihl Starter Parts
|About Stihl starter parts:
The parts of the starter system on Stihl equipment usually consist of the same type of components
found on all outdoor power equipment. They include a recoil starter housing, a rope pulley, a coil
type spring, a pull rope of various sizes, a pull rope handle and starter pawls that serve as hooks
between the recoil starter and the flywheel.
The starter housing, or assembly, on most Stihl models can be easily removed from the side of
equipment for service. The most common parts that need replacement are the pawls, spring and
pull rope. There are many starter spring sizes available and the spring should always be replaced
with the proper part number for the model of equipment. The starter pawls are usually made from
nylon plastic are easily replaced once the starter assembly has been removed for repair.
