Ice - You know, a while back earlier this year when I was still trying to diagnose problems with the magneto, I actually broke my kick return spring right where the "L" that hooks into the shaft kicking the kicker too far trying to get it running. I didn't feel like waiting to order a new spring so I fixed what I had in about 45 minutes total. Pulled everything apart until I could access the spring and remove it. Then I trimmed off the bad section of the spring so it had a nice flat end again. Then I took 2 pairs of vice grips and grabbed the spring accordingly, took my 3 flame cigar torch and heated in between the pliers until the metal turned bright orange, bent a 90 back into the spring and threw the spring in some cold water to temper it. It's worked like a champ ever since and has never given me any trouble.Scottie
