lmfao..thats what i was saying naplestan..if they come out..you better duck !..lmfaooo..i learned this the hard way...lmfao.if they are anything close to the Briggs and Stratton. recoil starter cords they are not fun at all I remember working at a rental store I had to re tension those coils on many pieces of equipment. you will never forget the first time I guarantee. expect that it will come loose in your hands followed by swearing and cursing. the learning curve is quick. after you done the first two. you become a bom (b) expert. I reccommend a face shield or goggles at the least!
