Question about Homelite 'Yard Broom' Leaf Blower

1 Answer

Adding a pull rope.

While adding a new pull rope I found a part that I can not determine where it goes. It is a flate piece of metal, about 4 inches around, with a 3 inch hole in the middle. It reminds me a of a gasket, except it is made of a shinng metal. Where does it go. Is there any where I can get a diagram of the parts?

    Pull rope comes out in short lengths medium lengths and occasionally full length

    if you can get me all of the numbers (model, serial, etc.) off of your unit, i can get you a diagram of how it should be put together. thanks.

    Could it be a spacer that sits between the recoil starter and the mounted onto sheet metal?

Well to msactual your pull cord assembly is not put together, did you wind the recoil spring tight enough? sounds like your "gasket' is a spacer like smith said.

Starter cord is stuck. Will not retract. What do I do


I spent a lot of time, but I found that most of the problems with this starter rope etc, are caused by the starter assembly being too tightly mounted to the motor assembly causing drag on the rope mechanism.
I fixed the problem by adding spacer washers between the starter and the engine mount (two small washers on each of the 5 or 6 mounting bolts adding about 1/4 inch of clearance.
Now even my wife can start this machine..

Starter rope pulley will not pull the rope back into the leaf blower.


Most commonly, the recoil rope rewind spring is broken. However, inspect the recoil housing assembly first to make sure no debris or rope fragments have prevented the rope rotor from rewinding. Always remove the spring 'AS A LAST RESORT'. Many rewind problems can be solved by inspection of the rotor and not have to remove the spring. In case you do, I will include instructions on how to re-install.

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

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.

Broken pull starter rope


remove pulley that rope goes on, wind it with new rope, wrap it till it is full, then feed rope thru hole in housing, put pulley back in place, put rope thru pull handle, pull thru till you feel spring catch tie a knot and that should do it......be careful when removing pulley not to dislodge recoil spring

The starter pull cord has pulled off.


EASY,REMOVE TOP COVER OF ENGINE THAT HOUSES ROPE ASSY. LOOK UNDERNEATH PLASTIC PIECE,CUT THE KNOT OFF THAT COMES THROUGH HOLE AND PULL AND EXISTANT ROPE OUT. OK, GET NEW ROPE AND HANDLE TOGETHER,THE END THAT IS OPPOSITE FROM NEW PULL STRING HANDLE YOU ARE GOING TO USE. CAREFULLY WIND UP ROPE HOUSING NICE AND FIRM JUST BY WINDING IT UP WITH HAND IN AS IT SITS IN TOP COVER. WHEN YOU THINK IT HAS ENOUGH TO PULL ROPE IN FEED END OF ROPE IN HOLE AND IN CHANNEL OF ROPE HOUSING,THERE IS A SMALL HOLE TO LINE IT UP WITH,WHEN SEE THE ROPE END FEED IT THROUGH THAT HOLE NOW. MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH. SLOWLY LET IT PULL ROPE IN,THEN PULL ROPE BY HANDLE FULL LENGTH TO ENSURE ALL KINKS ARE OUT AND IT PULLS BACK IN LIKE IT SHOULD.
