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.

Installing a starter rope


Remove the 3 or so screws that secure the pull rope housing to the top of the motor. Flip it upside down and it should be pretty obvious as to how to remove the spine loaded piece that the rope goes on. Thread the new rope thru the housing and wind it up on the spindle. Make sure before you put it on that the rope pulls out and retracts like it should.

Tip

Military Antennas


In the Army you are out in a field with a radio, a copper wire, a metal stake, and you pitch a tent. Its a radio similar to Cb radio 2 ways. You can run a wire 34 feet across between two trees about 15 feet up. make sure you tie the wire at both ends with Nylon rope(plastic) to the trees. Take the 4 to 6 feet metal rod drive into earth(ground). Attach center coax piece to wire strung between trees at one end. Attach shield to Ground Rod. Another way is to nail a board about 15 feet up, attach a copper wire 34 feet going out one way and another 34 feet the other side. It will form a Pyramid. Tie to two stakes in ground at both ends with nylon rope. It will make do for a fast Cb radio emergency camp radio. It may get stations 15 to 30 miles away. Try camping on a Mountain top with a portable 12 volt battery,Mobile CB, Copper wire, Metal stakes,plastic rope, Square plastic piece 14 inches long or a board piece.

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.

Need to obtain a new belt and pull rope for my Tiller


you can get a pull rope at wal-mart.measure the belt and any parts store or place that sells lawnmower belts should have one.if the rope broke close to the end knot just pull the end knot with some needle nose pliers.once you have all the old rope out lay the old rope pieces on the ground and cut the new rope to match it as far as length.turn the pulley that the pull rope goes in six turns counerclockwise.then turn the slot the knot was in to the hole the pullrope goes thru and fish it thru then pull it up and out with apaiar of needlnose have someone hold the pulley until you tie a small knot in the end of the pullrope the hold the pullrope and let it pull it in.you might have to cut some off at the handle if its still too long.to do this pull some rope out and tie a quick knot so the rope can't slip back if you let it go.

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..

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

The rope doesn't pull smoothly. I removed the


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.

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
