Top hat spacers for a plastic cover

Ah it's the pull start cover it's the collar to stop you crushing the plastic

Edit. It's the GGP WBE0701 engine best bet is to find a used pull start

You should be able to pop one of the others out, measure it up and post them on this thread, and I will see what I can do

Bodger Dave thinks
"Get a bolt the right diameter. Cut to length. Drill hole down centre (do-able with a hand drill with careful marking out and care to keep it square) file the head to thickness."
