Troy Bilt TB6044XP starter Pawls

Hey Everybody,
I got a Troy Bilt 6044XP 4 cycle weed trimmer in the shop and one of the plastic starter pawls is missing. Other than that, it starts with my drill attachment and runs well. The 753-08159 pawl kit does NOT fit since this one has a metal most the pawl slips over. I'm enclosing a picture. Has anyone ran into this before and if so, what part number am I looking for? Was chatting with Troy Bilt yesterday and that guy didn't even know what I was after.

Thanks

Tango

Update mechanic friends:

TroyBilt told me they will sell me the oil pan starter assembly (bottom of oil pan, starter fan) which will come with the pawls attached for 27.99. I asked them to find that part on the shelf, remove the e-clip, take off the pawl, sell that to me for $1.00. Not happy with their response I appealed to parent company MTD about why we should purchase a 27.99 piece when all we need is the 1.00 piece that is removable off the 27.99 piece. They again reiterated that I can buy the 27.99 piece that will solve my problem. Jeeeeeez

Guess I'll just lug my drill with starter attachment around when I use this machine.

Not satisfied with Troy Bilt or MTD's answer, I sent a letter with pictures to the CEO of MTD. Haven't heard anything back from him. Grrrrrr
