    My 10 hp is looking good so far. Waterpump was good and lower unit had nothing but oil in it. 85# of compression and good spark. The recoil rooe is the old cable one with the rope covering wore off and wondering what a good replacement size and length would be? Also what is the recommend spark plug? Thanks, Jim

    champion 6J6 from the book

    rope size… length same as the old one non metallic core (tool rental shops have all kinds of pull rope sizes to fix their own tools they rent

    ….see if they will sell you 6 feet or so I pay about 20c a foot common mower pull handles are about $5 not original but they work fine

    That motor should use a 7/32″ rope (also labeled as #7 size). And I think Crosbyman meant a Champion J6J spark plug, now changed to J6C.

    Ended up with number 6 as that was all they had on hand but seems to be fine.
