Remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

Fuel lines poulan bvm200vs gas blower


You need to split the entire unit to get to the fuel tank. Remove carb, remove exhaust, and remove right side of plastic enclosure. Check the cylinder to make sure it is tight, these units are notorious for the cylinder coming loose. Remove the tank and install your new fuel lines, leave them long then trim to fit once reassembled. Check to be sure the isolator mounts and starter rope ferrule are in place when reassembling

Can't pull starter cord


Here are some suggestions: Rope is bound on the pulley. Engine is locked up. Debris in the impeller housing. Flooded, excessive fuel in the combustion chamber. These are just a few. Hope it gets you in the right direction.

Weedeater gas blower FLI500E. The pull cord has become jammed. How can I un-jam the rope pull? I have removed the bottom of the blower and can get the rope pulled out, but it will not retract properly or...


You have to find a way to push the starter. It normally gets all stuck due to grease. One push with a screwdriver on the actual starter (The thing the rope turns) should wind the whole cord up. If not, clean it. Alot of oil/chunky-ness gets trapt when your using it.

I have a Poulan Pro Blower PPB2000LE rope came loose so I took it a part and now I don?t know how can I rewind the rope with the spring, should I use clock direction or the other direction.


It is not a question of clockwie or not, it depends on the direction of rotation of the engine, they are not all the same.

*wind the rope/spring in the direction that the rope would pull the rope rotor.


1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble

2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru

3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out

Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced

4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor

5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.

6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.

7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.

8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released

9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit

Poulan rope broke and pulled out of unit. How is


I have manually fixed these starters before and it is really more trouble than it is worth (and not one unit I fixed ever worked exactly the same afterwards). I would suggest taking it to your local small engine repair shop. They have both the patience and the tools to do the job right and the cost is well worth it--trust me!
