Question about Troy Bilt Tb70ss Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

Starter cord has detached internally and I cannot get to it

I have taken every screw out but cannot rmove the plastic cover to get the starter cord and its connection. The cover is loose but the metal part which rotates and links to the cable in the shaft is stopping me. I have tried some force whithout success and suspect I need a special tool to go inside and unscrew this part. It has a small internal diameter and no screwdriver I have will fit (and I cannot see what is at the bottom anyway)??

    I have the same problem bad starter assembly but can't get to it to fix it.

    with only about a dozen uses, the TB70SS is now completely useless. The starter rope - the pull rope that actuates the starter, has broken. As with other users, I could not discover a simple way to access the pull rope, and the schematics are a little scary. Anybody know how to do this? Or should I take it to a pro.

    I have the same, I can't get in to rewind the starter rope. Is there a schematic I can view?

  • kjestimate May 11, 2010

    The TB70SS has a #20 torx screw that holds it on. Once the clutch cover is off, however, the clutch assembly is still in the way. Do I need a puller to get the clutch off of the shaft?

Depending what make and how old the machine is,usually there is a torx screw in the middle of the clutch drum(metal part that rotates).you will need to use a piston stop,to stop the engine turning while trying to undo the torx screw. i am assumig the starter is in front of the engine not at the back. once the screw is undone the clutch will come off and so will the starter cover. neil

Starter handle will not catch


It's possible that a few things are happening. Some recoil set us have the dog ears, the little plastic piece that flaps out and catches the flywheel bell. Have you taken that cover off the unit yet? If not, take it off, pull the cord and see if either the dog ear is broke or something else is...this is an easy fix, recoil assys are not expensive at all... it all starts with that pull cord assy. Should be 4 screws that hold on the side panel to the saw, just don't take the recoil pulley out or you may find the spring will pop free from where it sits..

How to change cord victa corvette 160cc 2stroke electronic ignition


On assuming its fitted with a victa 2 stroke engine in which case unscrew the 3 cross head screws on the top plastic cover and remove it. You should then see the top of the engine and the recoil starter. Undo and remove the 3 bolts holding the starter to the engine. Remove the starter housing gently as there will be a large o ring under the stater. Once the starter is off you can undo the centre bolt and remove the recoil pulley and spring. When refitting starter smear a little oil on the large o ring to stop it from being damaged

How to put a new pull rope on it How do I put a new pull rope on


It realy depends on what model we are talking about, so i will give a general disciption, remove the four screws retaining the starter to the saw, remove the starter, if the cord is still under tention, pull the starter handle out approx 8", whilst held out hold the pulley to stop it retracting, let go the starter handle and unwind the now lose cord from around the pulley, once enough cord has been unwound let the pulley slowly turn until all the spring tention has gone, remove the center fixing screw, and remove the pulley, pull the old cord away, refit a new suitable diameter cord, knot the end and pull the cord into the pulley so as the knot sits flush into the hole in the pulley, wind the cord fully around the pulley,now refit the pulley to the cover, refit the centre screw ,push the other end of the cord through the cover eyelet and refit the starter handle with a suitable knot, now wind the cord around the pulley a further two times by turning the pulley and winding up the spring, allow the spring to pull the cord in, if required wind the pulley a further turn until the cord is suitably tentioned in the cover, replace the cover on the machine, pull the cord out to make sure it has engaged fully into the pawls before fully tightening the fixing screws.

Many of these small saws have what is reffered to as an e start, the section that engages to the flywhell is seperate to the rope pulley, and is joined via a round coil spring, the idea is to soften out the compression and help to spin the engine over when cranking, one end of the spring fits into the outer flyheel engagment pinion, the other ends fits into a hole in the starter cord pulley, it does not fit into the main recoil spring, the securing screw for the assembly is a shoulder screw the idea is not to pinch the rewind mechanism when tightened, as this only screws into plastic it is very easy to over tighted and make the pulley post swell and stop the pulley rotating on the shaft, you may now need to leave the screw just a little slacker, the black plate under the starter is a conductor plate, this helps blow the cold air from the flywheel over the cylinder, this plate should always be there. When assembling the starter on the saw, keep pulling the rope as the cover goes on, this will ensure the pinion engages properly with the flywheel pawls.
