Sounds like the nut that holds it together could be over tightened. If the spring came on wound you will need to replace it. Have you replaced the the friction plate or spring or any other internal parts? Have you cleaned and re greased the whole assembly. These are easy to work on but can be a pain in the a$$ to make work properly. Good Luck!

Does anyone know if the recoil starters are interchangable between models and years. I have a similar issue except the blazer I bought cheap had the recoil starter missing down to the pulley. Right now I just wrap a rope around the pulley and she starts everytime. Its just a bit annoying and I don't trust my wife to ride it and not get her leg or foot against the pulley.

if you need parts go to Mopeds, Scooters, Heeters Performance Center, Powersports Parts, Accessories, Apparel & Service Available atv and bike parts. bought recoil parts very very cheaply compared to ebay.
