Ideas???

Question

BigGrassBass

I've got an old (20 yrs. or so) Strikemaster XL2000 (I think) and yesterday the recoil that pulls the starting string back broke. Not the string, the recoil action is not there any more. I was able to use a pliars and move the wheel backwards to wind the string and continue drilling holes and fishing.

My question is if this can be an easy fix or do I have to take the whole thing apart?

Anyone else ever have to do this? How did you fix it?

Thanks,

BGB

StrikeMaster sells recoil repair kits on their web site for $12.50 if you want to do the job yourself. Otherwise a place like D-Rock Center in New Brighton or the service guys at StrikeMaster in Big Lake, or any authorized StrikeMaster repair facility could certainly do the job. I've never had to repair the one on my old MagIII (and I'm not looking forward to the day that I have to) but a certain amount of dis-assembly would be required. Check out the on-line manuals for Techumseh TC motors for detailed instructions. There a link posted to it on this forum a couple of weeks back concerning a question about carberator adjustment, or Google it. Good Luck.

Thanks Stu. I've actually got to go to Monticello on Wednesday for work so I'm going to swing up to Big Lake while I'm there and get the parts/have it fixed I think. I've still got to call them and see if they can fix it (I'm not a handy guy).

You're welcome. On a job like that it might be better to have the pros handle it if you aren't comfortable doing it. The manual has a lot of good information for maintenance and troubleshooting, I found it to be helpful.

      So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands.  Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year.  Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours.   Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in.   I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist,  but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.    Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!
