    hey guys I need to use a rope to crank up an old motor while I'm waiting for parts. how exactly is this done? the recoil starter is unbolted. I tried just wrapping a rope around the top but it just slipped. there is a notch, should I tie a knot and put it in there? and how may wraps arount the motor do I need?

    Yes, tie a know and put it in the notch. Wrap a rope around the flywheel 1-1.5 times and pull the rope ALL the way out.
