That did it. I'm ordering one tomorrow. Yours looks like it should have been sold that way, but when the 064 was first released, Elasto-Start was still being designed. You would not believe how many of the Elasto-Start handles I have repaired on the 650's and 660's. Usually it's the inside stretch rubber that gives up and rips apart. Some say it's because the pull cord stretches and that puts extra strain on the rubber.
Been there done that with wife lolYou rewound that pull cord spring by yourself with nobody else helping? Congratulations! Every time I have to do this I usually ask LOML to come to the shop and help. Four hands are better than two. We usually get the job done, but most of the time she won't speak to me for the rest of the day.
