Victa Sabre Edger recoil spring


hello sir, i'm guessing the rope is broken , first you'll need a c-clamp large enough to clamp the spooler, needle-nose pliers,a small tipped screwdriver and a new length of rope.the safest way is to remove the rewind assembly cover leaving the spooler in place in its housing. try to remove the old rope with neddle nose pliers ans small tipped screwdriver.next hand spin the spooler to achieve spring tension until stops back off enough to line holes up, place c-clamp to hold it in place,now try to fish the new rope into the hole in the knot recess,trying to guide it to the exit hole in the cover, ( it's easier to feed the rope if you singe the end of the rope with a bic lighter and form to a point )and with a small knot at the other end,pull the rope all the way until you can seat the knot into the knot recess.next tie a loop knot into the other end of the rope,so the end wont be recoiled all the way into the housing.with tesion on the rope gently remove the c-clamp and let the rope be drawed in.if it draws all the way to the loop knot, check to see if the spooler is full if so,( not too full where rope is binding ) pull the rope about a foot and re clamp the spooler and install the pull handle, if rope is too long you may have to cut to length. if it doesn't draw all the way to the loop knot and the spooler is not full than you may need to add anoyher revolution to the spring tension in the same fashion as described above.there are eisier ways but that evolves removal of the spooler and repacking the reciol spring.( not for the novice ). hope this helps,MrFixIt,thank you.

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

    How do i replace the starter cord on a victa commando lawn mower


    Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
    Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
    Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
    Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
    Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.

    It may not be the same on your machine, but most are like this.

    The recoil spring on my 1986 victa lawn mower will not rewind the starter cord. Is this easy to fix?


    Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

    - Remove the recoil assembly. Depending on engine model you may have to remove the air shroud with the recoil.
    - Remove the broken rope assembly from the spool by lifting the knot out of the hole and cut off the knot.
    - Pull the remainder of the old rope out of the recoil spool
    - Take the remainder of rope out of the pull handle

    On the new rope burn the ends with a match. With wet fingers pinch the ends of the rope while hot/melted until it is the same size as the rope. Form a point on the ends
    - Install the new rope in the handle by threading it into the handle and tie ONE small knot on the end.
    - Pull very hard on the rope until the new knot seats in the handle. Assemble handle.
    - PREWIND the spool in the recoil until it stops winding. I.e. max out spring tension but do not over wind it or you will break the spring. Make sure NOT to wind it in the wrong direction or you will break the spring
    - Back off the spool until the knot hole is aligned with the rope guide bushing on the outside of the recoil.
    - Either use a C-clamp or a 2nd person to hold the pre-wound spool in place.
    -Thread the new rope through the outer rope guide and into then through the knot hole in the spool.
    -Tie ONE small knot in the rope and pull it HARD back into the knot hole until the knot seats in the knot hole.
    -Release C-clamp or have 2nd person let go of the spool. The rope will rewind into the recoil assembly.
    -reinstall recoil/air shroud on the engine.

    That should get you mowing again.
    Thanks for choosing FixYa,
    Kelly

    How to replace starter cord on a victa corvette 400 series mower,cord snapped,i put it back on....now it doesnt retract properly when trying to start it


    Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.

    Starter cord will not rewind after being replaced. The string will rewind in the housing before it is attached to the motor but not after being attached. How do you pre wind the springs?


    What I do is the following:

    Remove the old rope ( what is left of it)

    Wind the starter rope pulley about 8 or 9 complete revolutions after I am confident that the spring has engaged the starter pulley

    Hold the pulley in place ( align the rope hole in the pulley with hole in the starter housing

    Insert the rope and tie a knot, pull the rope back tight against the pulley

    Pull the rope all the way out and hold slight tension on the rope and release the tension on the pulley but still holding the starter housing

    Starter spring should pull rope into housing... good luck
