Remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

How to get new plastic fuel lines in fuel tank in my weed-eater hedge trimmer. the line is larger than the hole in the tank.


Oftentimes it helps to use scissors to trim back a portion of the new line. Start at the bottom and cut upwards at an angle. Put some lubricant (WD40, perhaps) on the line and slide the sharp point into the fuel tank. Using needle nose pliers, grab the line and pull it through. This will only work if you have the correct size line. If the new line you are using is too large, you probably can't pull it through.

I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.

How to repair the pull starter for the WEED EATER Power edge PE5 50 - 22 cc engine the rope pulled out"


NOT SURE IF YOUR STARTER IS PART OF THE COVER BUT IF IT IS IT CAN BE A BIT TRICKY AS SOME MACHINES YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE STARTER WHEEL TO GAIN ACCESS TO REMOVE WHAT IS LEFT OF THE OLD CORD AND THEN FEED ANOTHER CORD THROUGH THE HOLE. UNDER THE STARTER WHEEL YOU SHOULD HAVE A LARGE COILED SPRING WITH A CIRCULAR HOOK POSSIBLY ON THE END WHICH HAS TO ENGAGE TOO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE WHEEL, ONCE THAT IS DONE YOU HAVE TO PULL THE ROPE INTO A NOTCH ON THE WHEEL BEFORE YOU WIND IT AROUND THE WHEEL, TURN THE WHEEL IN THE DIRECTION THAT THE COILED SPRING END WAS POINTING UNTIL IT STOPS, BACK IT OFF 1 TURN FEED THE END OF THE CORD THROUGH THE HOLE IN THE BODY OF THE COVER AND PUT A LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE HOLE TO STOP THE CORD FROM WINDING IN, THEN PUT THE RUBBER PULL END ON THE CORD AND TIE A KNOT IN THE CORD BEHIND THE RUBBER PULLER TO STOP THE CORD FROM PULLING BACK THROUGH THE HOLE.
rELEASE THE LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE COVER HOLE THAT YOU PUT IN AND LET THE SPRING WIND THE CORD BACK IN TO THE STARTER WHEEL
