1980 NC50 starter ratcheting mechanism

hello everyone.
I've have had this problem a few times. the ratchet mechanism that holds the starting spring in place every time you wind it up flips around and now I cant start it. I know that if i just drain the oil and take off all those darned bolts and the crankcase it'll just be flipped the wrong way and I'll just flip it back and it will work fine, until it happens again. so my questions are:

Is there some sort of spring that is supposed to prevent this from happening? how should it be set?

Is there an easier way of reseting this thing without having to take it all apart?

Does anyone else have this problem?
