We were out today having a ball but then midway through the session, the engine died while in forward gear and the manual start cord was solid, no movement
We drifted for a while, and paddled into shore for a looksie. Now, I'm not the most mechanical of people, but the starter recoil thingy looked fine with the hood off. Having a chat about compression, although not really knowing the solution
Still jammed tight and a rocky shore in front of us meant a long paddle into the wind
Luckily, we didn't have that far to paddle and the swell was next to zero.
Got home and the evinrude fired first time in the wheelie bin and rang like a songbird
So, anyone know of a quick fix when on the water for a jammed up pull-cord?
