I have a Jacobsen Sno-Burst that the recoil won't catch when pulling on rope. Can this be fixed by taking it apart, and put new parts (dog and spring). Are these recoils interchangable with other Jacobsens or others?
Sounds like it just needs some oil as it is either rusted or frozen with ice.
Some pictures would help, but when you remove the recoil cover you will probably find 1 or 2 metal tabs in there that are suppose to spring out when you pull the rope. Some have the recoil mechanism just screwed to the back cover and some are riveted and you have to remove the whole back cover.
