SOURCE: broken starter cord lawn mower #944.368300/craftsman

Please note ! patients is required with this one !
Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)

SOURCE: honda lawn mower wheel drive works, but needs adjustment, how?

Take the covers off the drive,there should be a hollow bolt the cable comes thru, it should have 2 adjustment nuts This lengthens or shorts the cable. There also may be a adjustment on the handle.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

I have a 1990 toro wheel horse classic 312 8 lawn tractor, it has a 42 inch side discharge deck, What's the deck drive belt size of this mower, model 31-12K801, I have searched for hours


If the belt is in one piece, put a chalk mark on the back of the belt and measure the length by running a tape measure from one side of the mark all the way around the belt until the mark appears. Take that measurement, subtract an inch for stretch and that number is the number of the belt you need. If it's broken in two, not three, then simply measure the length of the belt.

I have 42in toro zero turn. turn the key to crank and all you hear is the sound of an electric motor spinning but mower will not engage and crank


There is a small slined wheel that is plastic which serves to enguage the starter and flywheel.
This is mounted on the end of the starters armiture by a configuration of springs , weights and a small bolt / roll pin.
When the starter turns , centrifigul force is used to raise the plastic splined wheel...
It sounds to me that the splines are all broke off , The mechanism that causes the splined wheel to blossom , or the alignment of the starter has been set off somehow.

My toro wheel horse tractors & riding mower 31-12K801 312-8 keeps backfiring when I am mowing the lawn and stops and will not turn back on until you let it set for awhile. I had replaced the spark ...


I had a mower with exactly this behavior. Mine had a 14 HP Kohler Engine. After considerable frustration, we replaced the electronic ignition module, and it has worked perfectly since then.

Huskee 25 hp lawn tractor with briggs & stratton motor wont start


Most all manufacturers have the Users Manuel available on line you will need the Make and Model to pick the correct one. Have you replaced the battery. It can show the correct voltage but have no cranking amps. I believe if the solenoid is trying to engage the Dead Man switches are closed. With the starter disconnected from all power sources do the teeth on the starter turn or are they locked up? If they refuse to move do you have an Auto Zone around or another parts store or electrical engine repair store that can test the starter. Make sure the mowing deck is not engaged while you are trying to start the engine. I hope these rudimentary suggestions help.

Won't crank--some kind of electrical problem


Disconnect the (battery) starter cable and check with a multimeter the continuity of the starter relay thru the relay terminals which connect the battery to the starter (key will have to be turned to start) -- if you get continuity, it's likely not the relay, but I'm with you, it sure sounds like the relay (solenoid).


P.S. Running a starter directly off a charger is a good way to burn up a charger.
