Honda snowblower HS520 pull cord doesn't engage. Looks like there was an item in fixya addressing this at one time, but I can't find it. Any help?

in the recoil section of the motor ( where you pull the cord) there is a small tang that flips out as you start to pull and locks into the top of the pulley
if pulling the cord is not engaging the motor , it is most likely that the tang is broken or stuck in the returned position
may just need a bit of wd-40 or the like or if a new part , any mower repair or honda spares will have the part

Can't pull the starter cord, it's very hard to do. Removed spark plug and then the pull cord worked fine. Put the spark plug bvack in and once again the starter pull cord was hard to pull. Seems...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Remove the muffler and clean out the exhaust port and screen. You will have to disassemble the muffler and clean off or replace the screen item 8 of this link:

Before taking the muffler apart... unhook the spark plug and just pull it though with the muffler removed. If it pulls normally you know you have found the problem.

If it still pulls hard...check the exhaust port of the cylinder head for 2 tiny holes (not screw holes) Some have them some don't depending upon the year of the saw. If you do find 2 small holes that appear clogged with carbon... do your best to clean them out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
