Stuck starter shaft


Recommended Posts

I have a HPI Trophy Truggy 4.6 with the k5.9 engine fitted.

As the original Roto start fell off one day, I have had problems finding replacements ever since.


Then I came across a Pull Start that advertised its self as unbreakable.

It broke the first time I used it.


The problem is, it came with a new shaft, one which has the nut at the end, unlike the HPI one which has the nut 1cm down.

When I try and slide it out, it won't come - it appears to be stuck inside the engine!


Obviously I have no idea how this happened - just like I have no idea how to remove.

- if anyone has any ideas that would be great please.


As I cannot get it out, added to the lie about it being unbreakable, my only option is to see if the seller will replace the engine - and when he doesn't take him to small claims court.


thanks for any advice.
