    The engine is seized, the rope only pulls out a short distance.

    my mtd snowblower ran fine for 1.5 hours. then my son used it for maybe 20 minutes. said the engine kept stalling out (but i believe that was due to the wrong gear selected. oil level is good.

    now when you pull the starter rope it acts as if it is locked, or a seized engine. my question is can the transmission lock out the engine?

    Is the engine seized ? When you pull the rope, does it pull out a short distance and stop ? or does it pull all the way out but not engage to turn the engine over ?

If the engine is infact seized, then it will have to be re-built or replaced. It was probably run with very low or no oil at all. You may be able to get a short block for your engine. All you would need to do is reuse your cylinder head, flywheel, carburetor, ignition modual, recoil houseing, fuel tank, governor linkages and controlls. The engine block and all internal parts would be replaced. It is far cheaper to just replace the engine rather than re-build it unless you are able to do it yourself and save the labour cost.

Snow blower recoil rope broke tied back up and now will not recoil


Unless the recoil spring is broken, then you may have neglected to pre-load the recoil spring. With the recoil unit off of the motor, wind the rope fully around the pulley. Then, while keeping the rope fully wound, turn the pulley about 5 times around in the direction that would push the hope out through the hole. At this point the recoil spring will be trying to spin. Without losing that tension, push the end of the rope out through the hole, thereby putting a bit more tension on the recoil spring. Tie on the handle. Now, when you let go of the rope, the spring should hold the handle snug against the hole. An alternative method is to use a rope about 2 to 3 feet longer than the original. Wind it fully around the spool and put the end of it through the hole. Now pull the extra length through the hole until the tension is sufficient. Cut off the extra length and tie on the handle.
good luck, Al K

Installing recoil spring for Poulin P3314


Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the 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 for it 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. HTH

I have a poulan p3315 14" chainsaw. The the recoil won't work. I took the assembly apart and I can't get the recoil spring back in. I would like to buy a new assembly. Do you know where I can buy one?


Poulan.com Look your saw over carefully and maybe you'll find a model number that matches one of these.

A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

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

Recoil rope won't recoil!


-In bnjays case the rope was broken. Sometimes the rope retracks partially or slowly because the surface that the spring edges rub against when retracting the cord, are badly rusted. Disassemble and wire brush the rust off, or leave assembled and spray in thru holes in the pull start with WD40.Avoid getting WD40 on the rope.
