Change starter rope


If you can get the housing off where the pull string is then you should see the spool where the string was attached. There shouldbe a screw or small nut holding the spool on. First cut a piece of rope the same lenghth & diameter as the original I use nylon cause it holds up well to the oil and gas. Second cut off the remaining old rope, and with a screwdriver or socket unwind the spool until it is at it's maximum. Third, rethread the new rope through the same holes and slowly let the tention off the socket or screwdriver untiul the new rope is rewound on the spool. Attach the old handle and that should do it.
Hope this helps

Need to relace starter rope


1
Remove the cover from the side of the blower that contains the pull start. This usually involves removing the self-tapping screws that join the two halves of the blower housing together.

  • Remove the broken rope from the starter pulley. Usually the rope is attached to the pulley with a simple overhand knot; just grab the knot and pull the rope back through the hole in the pulley. Sometimes the rope is attached to the pulley with a staple or some other fastener, which you'll have to remove first.
  • 3 Remove the handle from the replacement rope, if it's already attached.
  • 4 Thread the end of the rope opposite the handle through the hole in the starter pulley, working from the inside of the pulley (the side facing in toward the engine).
  • 5 Fasten the rope to the pulley. If it attaches with a knot, simply tie an overhand knot, pull it tight and trim off any excess rope sticking out of the knot. If it attaches with a fastener, replace the fastener.
  • 6 Wrap the rope counterclockwise around the pulley until the pulley is full; this usually involves one or two wraps.
  • 7 Thread the free end of the rope through the hole in the blower housing.
  • 8 Replace the blower housing and screw it in place.
  • 9 Trim off excess rope, leaving about 6 inches of rope protruding from the blower housing.
  • 10 Attach the handle to the starter rope. This typically involves threading the rope through one or two holes in the handle and securing with an overhand knot.

    I pulled the starter rope out of the unit. How do I take the unit apart to re-wind the starter rope?


    Take the cover off and look under it, you should see a plastic round disc that the rope winds on, You will need to locate the string and get it out of the cover where it passes through,once this is done, you will have to turn the disc the correct way to tighten spring ( you should be able to feel the pressure building as you turn, if not go other way, or the spring is broke, in wich case you need parts. If all is well, when you feel tension on it and have enough....not to much...just think about how much pull you had before it broke,because when the rope comes out it gets tighter towards full pull of rope, HOLD tension and put string through the hole on cover, once you have it through tie your handle back on, you should be able to release and jossle to get the rope back in the groove, Place on machine and see if you have enough tension that it will retract in cover when pulled and let go, if it does not you will have to repeat procedure, and tighten spring.....Do not get carried away with the loading of the spring......TIP you can shorten string if you just lack a little bit of it retracting in cover because it gets tighter when pulled out....Good Luck!

    I have a TB465ss weed eater. It was running fine last time I used it. Now when I pull the rope it stops half way. It does not turn the motor and I cannot start it. Anyone have an idea what is wrong


    Sounds like you have fuel leaked into the cylinder. Remove the spark plug, empty it out, pull the rope a few times to force out the excess fuel, dry the plug off and put it back in. Don't put the choke on, open the throttle all the way up, and she should start. Remember, liquid doesn't compress, and sometimes changes in temperature or atmospheric pressure can push fuel through the system and into the cylinder.

    CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO RE-STRING PULL CORD


    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

    The starter pull cord has pulled off.


    EASY,REMOVE TOP COVER OF ENGINE THAT HOUSES ROPE ASSY. LOOK UNDERNEATH PLASTIC PIECE,CUT THE KNOT OFF THAT COMES THROUGH HOLE AND PULL AND EXISTANT ROPE OUT. OK, GET NEW ROPE AND HANDLE TOGETHER,THE END THAT IS OPPOSITE FROM NEW PULL STRING HANDLE YOU ARE GOING TO USE. CAREFULLY WIND UP ROPE HOUSING NICE AND FIRM JUST BY WINDING IT UP WITH HAND IN AS IT SITS IN TOP COVER. WHEN YOU THINK IT HAS ENOUGH TO PULL ROPE IN FEED END OF ROPE IN HOLE AND IN CHANNEL OF ROPE HOUSING,THERE IS A SMALL HOLE TO LINE IT UP WITH,WHEN SEE THE ROPE END FEED IT THROUGH THAT HOLE NOW. MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH. SLOWLY LET IT PULL ROPE IN,THEN PULL ROPE BY HANDLE FULL LENGTH TO ENSURE ALL KINKS ARE OUT AND IT PULLS BACK IN LIKE IT SHOULD.

    Poulan Pro Blower starter string


    This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
    First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
    1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
    2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
    3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
    4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
    5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
    6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.
