I came here hoping that someone could give me a little help with getting the recoil starter off of my wifes 1998 250 Tral Blazer.

I'm installing a new starter in it and I know what parts need to be removed.
I have the skid plate, belt housing and clutches off, but I can't get the recoil starter assembly off. I have removed all six bolts and I think it is just stuck to the engine case. I have beat on it and pried on it and I'm afraid I will break it.

Anybody know how to get it loose. I talked to mechanics at shops near me and they say hey usually came right off.

It might have been put on with a silicone gasket. I'd take a small blade screwdriver and use that to get between case and the cover to try to get it off.

Thanks for the reply Thor,

I guess I'll just have to be a little more aggressive with the darn thing. I was just looking for the magic bullet to make it easier. I'll get it off, I just hope I don't break it.
