or just admit its a right pain in the posterior and take it to a lawn mower repair shop.

as far as they are concerned its just another failed home repair on a recoil... no "marine = " problems!

is your time worth the 20 odd?

Its a right of passage in the ownership of that engine. Personally I'd hold the person who sold it to you as 100% responsible for not warning you of the risk of removing that screw! Is the person who sold me mine listening ;-)

That said Spartacus has a valid point. Those springs can snap spectacularly... ...don't ask how I know that one!

eh? did somebody say something?

Yes that screw is very tempting. With the benefit of someone else's hindsight I consider myself lucky that I managed to service everything I needed to without removing the lid...

Still stand by my lawnmower repair shop theory.

I did it in a strimmer. Much smaller.There is usually a case. If you start from the out side you can push it into the case gradually twisting it using 2 hands.There are 2 ways to put it in.The inner end of the spring must hook onto the lug on the inner axle check the orientation before you start.It was not easy and with a bigger spring I would say the lawnmower shop option is the one I would go for.

Stick with it Eoin... it's like Excaliber and pulling it from the stone. If you manage to fix that old Johnson you will be gifted with magical powers! This includes being able to open old jars of pickled onions!
