Replacing pull string on poulan pro blower

The string came out of the unit. I have taken out all of the crews and cannot pull apart the housing except an inch or two due to the engine. I need a diagram or owners manual to see how to re attach the string. Can you help?

    The pull cord will not retract. Is it broken or should I spray some WD40 inside the open area around the pull cord?

    My pull rope will not retract. I've removed all the Allen screws I can access to try to free it, but two are recessed deeply and the wrench won;t reach them. What a pain!

Just went through this pain today. Here's how I did it. Use allen wrench with T handle to remove the shroud over the carb controls and plug. Then remove about 10 screws and split the case. Use tool that comes with the unit to remove the nut holding the impeller. Behind the impeller, use torx head to get the other bolts to remove the motor. There are two other screws on the other side that hold the motor on. Drop the motor from the case carefully. It is still attached by wires to the throttle and kill switch. Note how the throttle linkage is connected because it will come apart for sure. On the one side of the housing you are looking at the plastic cord spool with the spring unit behind it. My chord simply pulled out of the spool. It was held on with a 10mm nut and start washer (not a good design). If the chord broke, remove the remnant from the take up spool. To rewind the new chord or replace the one that pulled free, you need to wind the spring to put tension on it. Make sure the take up spool engages with the spring tang otherwise it will turn free and not tense the sprint. Once engaged with the tang, the spool should set to the bottom to be level with the metal chord guide. Turn the spool clockwise 3-4 turns until you feel it tighten. With a 2nd pair of hands, hold the tension on the spool and tread in your chord. Route the chord through the take up reel into the hole on the side. Loosen the 10mm nut with the star washer and route the end of the chord through it. Tie a simple knot in the end to prevent it from pulling through. Tighten the 10mm nut which clamps on the chord. Now, slowly, let the spring tension take up the loose chord until fully retracted. Make sure the metal chord guide fits in the slot to channel the chord properly into the take up reel. Hold the spool down and give the chord a gentle test or two. The chord should retract easily and fully. Simple as pie!!! Reverse the disassembly and you are back in business.

I pulled the starter string out. I read some posts on how to fix it, but it looks like the Greek Language. Is there any pictures, diagrams that can help me figure this out ?

The carburator and intake manifold have to come off one side, and the muffler needs to be removed from the other side.

I have a Poulan Pro leaf blower/vac. The fuel lines cracked inside the gas tank so I pulled them out & bought new ones. Now i can't get them back in to the gas tank. I understand there are


Make sure that you have the right size lines the smaller diameter line goes into the bottom hole of the tank cut a 45 angle at the end of the line as you put the line into the tank twist and push until you get enough line to pull up through the fuel filler hole then cut the line so that the 45 is no longer and slip the fuel filter on then pull back the line until the filter rests at the bottom of the tank. Do the same with the upper line except that line will only go in 3 to 4 inches. I hope this helps you.

I have a Poulan Pro Blower PPB2000LE rope came loose so I took it a part and now I don?t know how can I rewind the rope with the spring, should I use clock direction or the other direction.


It is not a question of clockwie or not, it depends on the direction of rotation of the engine, they are not all the same.

*wind the rope/spring in the direction that the rope would pull the rope rotor.


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

Replacing pull string on Poulan BVM200VS leaf blower


You will need to split the housing and remove the impeller wheel. In doing this you will have to disconnect the throttle cable and the switch assy. This can be a hand full if you have never done one.

In the future when you are purchasing a string trimmer or blower

or hedge trimmer, be sure that the starter can be removed by

removing 4 screws. This makes starter repair a 5 minute $10 job

instead of an hour $40 or more job. The problem is that you will

not find this in most home centers or box stores. You will have to

go to a full service dealer.

Rob poulan leaf blower how to rewind pull string


I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled. HTH
