    I just wondered if any of you fellas knew of a good marine shop anywhere around, or if anyone does work on motors in the Miami Valley? I live near Troy and I don't really know of a good shop. The motor I am working on starts up fine using the manual method of wrapping the rope around the wheel. The motor is a 1972 4hp Evinrude Lightwin. I have managed to put a new recoil spring in (pain in the arse) but it doesn't seem to rewind or pull correctly, there seems to be tension. I'm not really sure how to fix it so I thought I would take it somewhere. Thanks for any suggestions I appreciate it!!!:D
