The electric starter recently quit working on my 2004 Polaris Magnum 330 4x4 so I've been using the pull starter but now that quit working. I dont want to get into fixing the electric starter right now.

When I would pull the rope it wouldn't recoil so I pulled the whole recoil assembly apart thinking the spring might be broken. The spring appeared to be fine so I cleaned and started reassembling everything. As I was putting it together it recoiled fine until I tightened the friction plate that holds the spring and rope reel in place.

Im confused about what might be making the recoil stick. My first thought after reassembling it is that the spring is just old and can't create enough tension to over come the small about of friction between the friction plate and rope reel. I know a lot about motors and things that go fast but this is my first time messing with an ATV so any help is appreciated.
