Question about Poulan Featherlite Gas Blower, with Low Emission Engine, 150 M
My neighbor says that the starter rope was installed wrong at the factory. We installed the rope his way and the rope came out on the first crank. Now I had to buy a new pulley and I need a diagram to show the correct way to attach rope to pulley.
This is on a Weedeater Blower (gas) FL1500. Thank You
The factory method is to bring the pull cord through the hole on the outside of the pulley, wrap clockwise once around the cogged part of the pulley, then over the pull cord and a clockwise wrap under the screw with the searated washer.

Hi. sorry it took me so long to answer you. this is the easiest way to replace the starter rope:
first 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. then 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 it a little 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, i suggest replacing the whole starter assembly because the coil spring is extremely difficult to replace by itself. thanks for using fixya.com. if you have any other qestions or need further assistance, just let me know and i'll be happy you. happy holidays
