Sure, no problem. this is the easiest way:

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

130BT Blower can't pull start cord.


Can be a couple issues. The obvious is seized. The other is a broken jammed connecting rod. I would put some oil down the plug hole and let it sit overnight. Then after a day or so...try again with the wratchet. In both directions, forward then backward just to try and free it.

Pull cord for starter is not catching?


There are starter pawls that catch the flywheel when the rope is pulled. They are plastic. You will need to disassemble the unit and remove the starter assembly to inspect the pawls.

Reinstalling the starter on the PB 620 so that the string recoils properly


Hi, I'll assume that the recoil itself is working properly, so all that you need to do is align the housing with the attachment points and give the cord a slow pull to seat the locking cam -it should drop into place. Tighten the housing down and test. Hope this helps.

Attaching starter rope to pulley


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.
