Starter Rope Rewind Problem

I have a TORO Super Recycler Model No. 20481 Lawnmower that is just starting to have a rope rewind problem. It does rewind, but very slowly after it starts. I took the starter unit off the mower and inspected it. As far as I could determine, everything looks OK. Is there some kind of adjustment that I could make to make the rope rewind normally? Thanks.

Toro walk behind model 20016. The starter rope did not break it just won't pull out??? HELP


Remove the rope case and see if it is the mower -also - remove the spark plug and try it - also - - after removing the spark plug - also -try spinning the blade. If you remove the top you will see the problem sooner.

Starter rope broke how do i replace it. toro super recycler mower. Removed the plastic engine cover and the recoil mechanism seems to be rivited down and I cant get in there to replace the rope. Please...


You have to remove the whole engine air shroud over the flywheel to gain access to the recoil and rope mechanism. If you need specific help on your exact model engine I need all of engine model type numbers 5 to 6 char then 4 char then 2 char i.e XXXXXX-YYYY-ZZ for B & S Honda numbers are by the engine oil port on the base of the crank case. Thanks for using FixYa, Kelly

The starter rope broke on my Toro mower and the housing around it is riveted on. how do i get it off to replace the rope?


I cannot believe that someone suggested grinding off the rivets. If the bottom portion of the rivet falls down and gets caught by the magnet on your flywheel and you try to start it you are going to do some SERIOUS damage.

Here is the instructions DIRECT FROM BRIGGS & STRATTON:

This is a relatively simple process, but you have to be VERY careful when doing this. The spring is long, under some tension and has sharp edges. Anytime you are dealing with the manual rewind starter assembly, there is risk of the spring coming out and possibly injuring yourself or others. If you do not feel comfortable performing this repair, I strongly suggest visiting one of our many authorized dealers in your area and have them do this for you.
You will have to remove the gas tank2.gif to get at the rewind and blower housing. Remove the entire blower housing and rewind assembly and turn it upside down.
NOTE:You do not have to drill out the rivets to get to the back of the rewind assembly. This is only necessary if you are removing the ENTIRE rewind assembly, (metal housing and all) and are separating it from the blower housing.
You'll need a pair of vise grips or a screw driver, some rewind rope, a long thin sharp tip flexible object (the wire from a coat hanger may work) and a lighter handy.
  1. Take the pulley and start to turn it so that the rope becomes loose.
  2. Remove the rope.
  3. Once the pulley is all the way out, with the most tension, either use the screwdriver between the spokes of the pulley, or use the vise grips to hold the pulley in place; be careful not to place too much pressure on the vise grips, the plastic pulley may break!
  4. Make sure that the hole in the pulley lines up with the hole on the rewind assembly.
  5. Using the wire from the coat hanger, push the rope through the hole of the rewind and pulley. Pull the rope through the pulley and tie it off. Now use the lighter to burn the end of the rope to prevent the not from coming off.
  6. Now, remove the screwdriver or vise grips, while holding on to the pulley.
  7. SLOWLY let go of the pulley and the rope should feed back into the pulley as you do this.
