Power Tip #14


Check that rewind starter

Dec 17/03
While you are sitting around the garage waiting for snow, go and take a close look at your snowmobiles rewind starter. Check the entire length of rope for wear or rub through spots. Give it a couple of complete pulls and try to remember if it feels like it did when it was new. Listen for squeaks and groans. The best thing is to simply remove it, take it to your work bench and take it all apart. Clean it, look for wear, and the re-assemble with new lubricant. Happy sledding.
