Pullstart weirdness want to beef up

Anyone have pics of the innards of a cag pocketbike pull start?

On my French style bikes,

The pull start gets really fucky after awhile.

The aluminum pawly inner push out grabber guyee stops pushing out, because something breaks or is worn down in the unit. The outer worm drive rails are intact, but the device that's meant to lock the cam so it extends out is missing. So weird.

I can see the physics behind the functioning of the "lock" that's attached to the shaft. Sadly my lock nubs aren't there anymore and I want to make a replacement.

I think the part that's jacked up is the center black bushing that the spring sets into.

Post pics pleeeze

Washer on the bottom is super important

Oh yeah. Make a bulletproof flywheel pawl too. I stopped letting the pull start grab just two Allen’s a while ago.

Thx!

What a shitty design.

Can you get these plastic parts?

So stupid to ditch the whole start just cuz those nubs break off

Re: Pullstart weirdness want to beef up

I bought a few on eBay yesterday.

$9 each so I guess maybe these are just throw away when the nubs go away

Maybe these will help my hobbit rip

Exactly

This part needs to be 3D printed!

It is the perfect application of printing a stupid lil weird piece

Re: Pullstart weirdness want to beef up

What type of cable are you guys using? I've rewrapped with paracord a few times and that works great for a while but eventually the other sheath gets chewed up and gets all bunched up right inside the hole. I needa switch out the unit itself, I feel like it gets an edge in there eventually but I've had similar luck with other ones. I was reading about this dyneema cable, supposed to be even more abrasion resistant than paracord

Who cares.

Rope works

We're talking about that fucky nub that destroys itself

Re: Pullstart weirdness want to beef up

I copied your pawl today.

Works great. Thx for posting
