Hi All, having problems with the recoil starter pawl, it’s an aftermarket assembly with a white pawl, when I install the stater it pulls and turns over fine with the spark plug removed, when I reinstall the plug it snaps the white pin on the pawl.
Any Thought as to what I may be doing wrong.

Sorry your having trouble. Can you post some photos of the parts.

Why did you replace the original parts ?

It was taken apart by someone else, I have since ordered an OEM pawl , hoping it’s better quality.
Thank for the reply

Hi, here’s what I know : Sthil mdl # FS46 C E2S , S/N 263985156, was running fine until the string broke at which time it was disassembled, and parts were lost, I have tried to install an OEM aftermarket starter, see pic’s, when installed and plug removed it pulls fine , when the plug is installed pull hard and snaps the pin off Of the pawl, is there a different starter for an EZ start?
Thanks

Your post heading identifies your Sthil as FS45, yet in your post #4 you identify it as FS46

Which is it ?
