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?

    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.

How thick should the sisal rope for my cat tree be?


Use sisal rope that is 3/8 inches thick. If you buy the 1/4 inch rope like I did to save some money, it will just wear out very quickly and you'll have to buy new rope anyway.

Pull cord will not rewind


  • 1

    Turn the Homelite chainsaw so that the bar and chain are laying flat and the starter cover is facing up. Loosen the four starter cover screws by unscrewing them counterclockwise with the screwdriver.

  • 2

    Take the starter cover off of the engine. Turn the starter cover over to work on the pull starter. Pull the rope out about 6 to 8 inches.

  • 3

    Twist a loop into the end of the rope. Insert the intersection of the two ropes into the notch on the upper flange of the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the recoil spring has disengaged. Unwind the rope from the pulley. Cut off any old rope if you need to replace it with a new rope.

  • 4

    Unscrew the screw holding the pulley to the starter cover using the screwdriver. Take the pulley off the starter cover. Turn the pulley over and remove the recoil spring cassette from inside the pulley.

  • 5

    Inspect the spring inside the cassette to see if it is damaged or overstretched. Replace the recoil spring cassette if it is broken. Lubricate the post on the starter cover using about a dime-sized amount of engine grease.

  • 6

    Put the recoil spring cassette back into the pulley. Set the pulley onto the starter cover and tighten the screw down with the screwdriver. Wind the starter rope back around the pulley in a clockwise direction.

  • 7

    Leave about 6 to 8 inches of rope unwound. Form another loop at the end and insert the loop into the notch on the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the tension is set on the recoil spring.

  • 8

    Remove the loop and place the starter cover back over the engine. Pull the rope out 6 inches and tighten the starter cover's screws using the screwdriver. Release the rope and it should automatically retract


  • hope this helps

    Pull rope stuck


    It sounds as if the motor may be locked up. WIth spark plug wire disconnected, turn mower on side and see if you can turn blade. It should turn rather easily, but you will feel the compression stroke. If you can' turn it try removing the spark plug. If you still can't turn it, check the oil level, if it's low the motor may be siezed. You also could have a stuck valve. If it is a valve you can try removing the cover, and soak it with oil. It is imperative to watch the oil level in small motors, as well as being sure to change it.

    How do I wind a stihl ts400 pull cord


    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

    Before installing fasteners for the recoil to the housing, pull the rope a small amount 2-4". With a small pressure from your other hand, at the same time push gently down on the recoil housing. This should partially rotate the flywheel and align the pawls to the rope rotor. Repeat this proceedure until you feel the pawls drop into place.
    You may want to review the proceedure for installing a rope to complete your repair.

    Recoil not recoilling good


    hey fark
    This is easy. Take off rope housing (four screws). Once off, pull the string out 3/4 of the way. Once out, tie string around spindle one extra time ( real easy just wrap string once more around winding spool ). This oughta make string snap back after pulls.
