i pulled my pull start string to far and the screw to one of the screws that screw he pull start on the engine is striped ! My lhs guy forgot to put a washer in first so it wont come out. any ideas to what to do ? the string is just hanging alll the way out. I was thinking about my dremel grinding out a slot but the pull start outer box is kinda in the way i would have to grind a bit of plastic to ?

You can dremel it and make a flathead screwdriver slot.
Also try just giving it a little tug on the string and it should go back in. or try to loosen the screws just a little and then giving it a tug.

Yea this happened to me one time when i used to use a pull start. If it just goes far and doesn't retract. Pull the thing a little more with a short quick pull and it should retract.

Yes I agree that is the best thing to do. It should retract back with a short quick further pull.
Hope this helps,

turn the flywheel the other way real slpw sometimes that will help get the pul start rewinding.
