The recoil starter spins the engine on the log splitter when you pull the starter rope, and the rope retracts when released. If the recoil starter assembly is broken, follow the steps in this repair guide to replace it.
The flexible nylon log splitter pump coupler deteriorates over time. Replace the flexible pump coupler if it begins to vibrate or rattles, which are early indications that it’s failing.
The fuel line carries the fuel supply from the gas tank to the carburetor. If the fuel line is cracked and leaking, replace it.
The carburetor mixes air and gas before the fuel mix goes to the engine. If the engine won't start and the spark plug is getting spark, the carburetor is likely the problem.
