I picked up another spare motor over the weekend. The one on the right is a 74 and the other is a 76 I believe. I just got the 76, it's been sitting in my buddy's barn. He said it worked when he put it up. I cleaned it up. The pull start won't engage the flywheel. I took the recoil off and put PB Blaster on the pawls. It was throwing the pawls out but doesn't work when I got it put back together. If you pull it real fast sometimes it catches. Any suggestions?

Did you see any cork/felt when looking at the pawls? There should be something kinda oily to put some resistance on the mechanism.

No I haven't had time to look at it. I'm going to pull the recoil off my other motor and compare them. I wonder if I put them in backwards when they fell out while rewinding the pull start. You can see in the picture where they have been scraping the flywheel.
