    my rope pulls easy too. problem is there is no engagement between the wheel the rope turns, and the motor. the pull rope just 'free wheels' and nothing happens.

Snowmobile ran great all day but seemed to run different on the way home. The next day I went to start it and I couldn't pull the rope. I assumed it was locked up but not sure now.

Why did it stop running?


Be sure the oil is exactly on full mark as most of these generators will not start if off the mark. They are built that way to ensure the engines don't burn up.

What does "almost" start mean?

Replacing start rope of the b&s model # 120600


Take off the three-four bolts holding on the starter cover and lift it off the engine. Make sure you dont leave the oil dipper attached too.
Remove its bolt at the cover so it doesnt come out of the engine block and make a mess.

Flip the cover over and you should see the pulley the rope rides in. Pull out the broken end piece of the rope from the inside-center of this pulley. Get a new piece of rope from a power equipment store. Make sure you get enough to cover the length needed to make it all the way out to the handle! Snake into the recoil cover from the outside hole into the pulley *(you align the pulley with the hole in the cover) with small needle nose pliers you can pick the rope through the pulley hole and then tie a knot to secure this end of things. A butane lighter is good to use on the frayed end to "melt lock" it. Nothing crazy now...just melt the tip where you see the frayed material.

Then put the t handle on the other end and tie it off too. Also melt the frayed end before pulling the rope into the t handle.

Now that the rope is in place all you need to do is prewind the pulley. This is done by using a small section of the rope near the pulley to turn it in the direction of starting about 6-8 turns and then carefully release the pulley so it winds the rope onto it. You can do this slowly by keeping tension on the T handle and slowly walking it into the starter cover. Be careful. You dont want to get your fingers caught on anything spinning or pulling here. The rope will be twisted so the person holding tension on the rope can help by untwisting the rope so it can rewind smoothly.

That is about it. You can then pull the rope a few times to make sure you put enough prewind on it so the rope doesnt stop pulling even though you have more rope to pull *(this is to prevent causing the recoil spring binding from insufficient prewinding)

Put the recoil cover back on. Put the t handle back into the fixture on the mower handle. Thats it! Start her up and go cut some grass!

Good luck and be careful!

My stihl 041 saw very old made in germany farmboss but very low hours on it. will pop and smoke a little but not start. When I pull on the starter and it almost starts it gets very hard to pull on rope -...


Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Pull-start rope won't pull


This has happened several times for me and is usually caused by a peice of word jamed in the input hopper and half cut by the blades. Always make sure there is no wood in the input chute before stopping motor. remove the collector bag and use a long pry bar to reverse the flywheel. if this moves backwards you may then be able to remove the peice of wood jammed in the blades thru the input chute. Long Skinny arms is required to reach down the chute. Use a Flashlight to see if this is your problem.

Pull rope seems to be locked up...won't pull


make sure you can turn the blade by hand, make sure grass isn't stopping the blade after that make sure the break cable isn't bad, sometime's the cable don't disengage the break from the flywheel. Hope this works.

ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT


look under neath and see if anything is stuck in the blade. You probly have a cover for the top part; see if you can pop off a plastic top if you have one.
