I have a Polaris Trailblazer 250 and we cannot for life of us get the reel off the pull start assembly!! It will not budge! Any tips or tricks would be great! :Flush:

You have to thump it with a rubber mallet and or I use wood chisel gingerly between recoil housing and engine case to break seal. If you wedge between use extreme caution.

Sorry I misread. I always wind it up then thread new cord in from outside. I don't like to deal with the spring. Will that work?

Here is what it looks like on both sides, I'm trying to remove the reel... do I even need to remove that reel to replace the recoil spring? Im not too sure that I really do need to remove it now...?
Soak it with pb blaster and leave it overnight.

The guide looks like it's threaded into the reel.
You may have to sacrifice the plastic reel by heating the metal hub to get the guide shaft loose...
It looks like a reel 3083814, guide 3083913, hook-spring for the ratchet 3083924, and spiral reel take-up spring 3083815 are over 2/3 the price of a whole new unit 3083924.

If you get a new unit be sure to remove the reel from the guide shaft and coat the threads with never seize. If you manage to get yours apart I'd recommend the same on that one.
