it should just pull straight off after you remove the bolts. give it a gentle tap with a hammer, maybe its rusty and stuck to the engine shrouding

Shouldn't be much to interfere on those unless maybe the arm the flips out to engage the flywheel got stuck somehow? It should retract when the motion of the rope is relaxed. YOu should be able to see it if that's the case - reach in with a screwdriver and flip it or push it back while you pull out.




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

(1) The engine can remain mounted to the frame.
(2) Remove the electric start switch housing first. Remove four (4) bolts to remove the housing:




(3) There are two (2) bolts holding on just the recoil starter.
(4) There are five (5) bolts holding on the fan cover.

But isn't the OP asking about a "recoil" starter . . . . meaning manual, not AC ?

I have the first generation 828 (not K1) and there is a third bolt at the bottom of the starter case that you access behind a small black rubber plug.

I see Robert's drawing has it, but the text says 2 bolts.

If you have this, you'll need a 10mm deep well socket or a 10mm wrench and slip it up under the outer case.

I notice that recoil starter parts are no longer available for my model as well as a first run K1. I don't like seeing "Part Obsolete" in the lists.

I've had some sticking issues with the ratchet (I've always called them dogs or pawls) that so far I've cleared up by a good cleaning and lubing, but I wonder if a newer starter assembly would retrofit (with a newer starter pulley also).

The HS828 was offered with an electric start option, and if the OP has an electric start model, the starter switch housing must be removed first before you can remove the recoil starter. At least that's what the shop manual says.

Three bolts, off in less than a minute. First run HS828TAS.

Long shot here, but is there any way you could check to see if there is another generation recoil starter (or mainly recoil starter assembly) that would fit my first gen 828?

I would like to have some parts on the shelf here as I'm going to keep it and hopefully pass it on one day and I have been having repeated sticking issues for the last couple of years.

As always, thank you mucho grande.
