Resolved Question:

I have a Harry lawnmower, about 12 years old, with a Tecumseh 50 engine. The recoil starter mechanism has broken (the detachable bit on the top of the engine). Would I be able to get a replacement part?

There are some good vidoes on line such as the one here which show you how to replace the pull cord.

If you need the complete unit I have used this website here, and looking at the link they seem to do parts for the pre 1990 models too for around £30, so looks like your in luck!

I would appreciate it if you could rate my response today.
