Your question is not clear, but it may help to know that you have to pre-load the recoil spring. To do this you give the spool a couple of rotations in the direction that would be pushing the rope out through the hole to the handle. Do that before you thread the end of the rope through the hole to the handle. It helps to start with a rope that is about 2 feet longer than you need. The rope will be trying to retract as you put a not in it to secure the handle. I pair of locking pliers or a sturdy spring clamp is handy to hold the rope while you tie the knot. Good luck!

Did you remember to "wind" the cord when you replaced it. They normally have a spring type of set up that you have to wind before you bolt everything together.

SOURCE: DO I NEED SPECIAL TOOL

There are special tools made for this job, however not needed for most jobs (makes easier). Clean the spring and lube slightly with silicone spray or light oil. Catch the end of the spring that would be the outer end onto slot or pin and slowly spiral the coil into place holding down coils as you turn(dont try to coil the spring then drop it in, take your time as you wind and maybe ask a freind to lend a third hand if your fingers get tired, once you start you cant stop). The inner part of the coil has a bent hook that will catch on the inner portion of the pull rewind. Lood at how the rewind catches this hook by turning the rewind in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope. When you pull the rope it winds the spring. If you put the spring in backwards the rewind spring will not catch. Once you got the spring in place, turn the rewind in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope until it stops, then release one turn and insert rope thru guide and into spool to tie knot. Slowly let rewing pull in new rope. Good luck

Briggs & Stratton 9000 diagram/repair manual. For the pull cord assembly. FREE


If you are going to be repairing B&S air cooled engines, may I suggest that you make a handy tool for repairing the pull cord starter. To access the pull cord assembly, remove the blower housing to expose the backside of the pull starter. All of the B&S pull start engines have a starter clutch that secures the flywheel to the crankshaft. These clutches go bad after a while. Go to a local repair shop and ask if you can have an old B&S starter clutch. Take it apart and keep the spindle. Have someone weld a T bar handle to the spindle. You will use this to reload the spring in the recoil starter, winding backwards to load the spring. Use a C clamp to hold it in place after loading the spring. Insert the new nylon pull rope through the grommet and out through the hole in the rope spool. Tie a figure 8 knot in the end of the new rope. Slowly release the C clamp to allow the spool to rewind, loading itself with new pull cord. You need about +/- 20 inches of pull cord. Replace the rubber handle on the pull cord and you are ready to mount to blower housing back on the engine. I hope this helps. PS. See the attached url for the Operator's Manual for the 9000 horizontal. http://www.tranzsporter.com/tpdf/Briggs%20&%20Stratton%209000.pdf

How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".
Cheers..

How to connect powercord to recoil


Hi Ken:
Here's a youtube clip.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOI1UQDb8Ns
The principle is the same for most pull start motors.
- Take it apart (remove the starter assembly)
- Pull the cord out as far as it will go.
- Use a nail or screwdriver to stop the spool from rewinding
- Remove the cord
- Install a new cord the same way that the old one was attached
- Remove the nail (or screwdriver
- Re-attach the starter assembly
Ta Da!

Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.

There should be a hole in the pulley that holds the starter rope in the starter/recoil unit. If you have taken the machine apart to that point, yes, there is only one way to reassemble it.
You will have to wind the starter recoil without the rope installed on itabout 5-6 complete revolutions to "pre-load" tension on the spring-steel starter spring, then lock the pulley in place, insert the pull rope and tie it off so it can come back out and then release the pulley, letting it draw in the new starter cord. Make sure you have the handle installed so it will stop when it gets to the body of the engine cover.

I have a craftsman blower 358.797130 and the pull core broke .i have taken everything apart but can not get the pully off the seal o ring seems to be stoping it help the manual is no help


Yes, owner operator manuals cover very little in the way of repairs. If you have the unit taken apart down to the starter/recoil unit and you want to replace or rewind the rope on the pulley...it shouldn't have to be removed, unless the starter spring has broken. These units have a cheap starter system that wears easily and causes the problem you have. If you can, preload the spring (before installing the rope ) by turning it several times in the tension direction and then hold it in place and install the rope, Observe how the old rope is looped around the inner core of the starter if you install new rope.

How to repair the pull starter for the WEED EATER Power edge PE5 50 - 22 cc engine the rope pulled out"


NOT SURE IF YOUR STARTER IS PART OF THE COVER BUT IF IT IS IT CAN BE A BIT TRICKY AS SOME MACHINES YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE STARTER WHEEL TO GAIN ACCESS TO REMOVE WHAT IS LEFT OF THE OLD CORD AND THEN FEED ANOTHER CORD THROUGH THE HOLE. UNDER THE STARTER WHEEL YOU SHOULD HAVE A LARGE COILED SPRING WITH A CIRCULAR HOOK POSSIBLY ON THE END WHICH HAS TO ENGAGE TOO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE WHEEL, ONCE THAT IS DONE YOU HAVE TO PULL THE ROPE INTO A NOTCH ON THE WHEEL BEFORE YOU WIND IT AROUND THE WHEEL, TURN THE WHEEL IN THE DIRECTION THAT THE COILED SPRING END WAS POINTING UNTIL IT STOPS, BACK IT OFF 1 TURN FEED THE END OF THE CORD THROUGH THE HOLE IN THE BODY OF THE COVER AND PUT A LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE HOLE TO STOP THE CORD FROM WINDING IN, THEN PUT THE RUBBER PULL END ON THE CORD AND TIE A KNOT IN THE CORD BEHIND THE RUBBER PULLER TO STOP THE CORD FROM PULLING BACK THROUGH THE HOLE.
rELEASE THE LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE COVER HOLE THAT YOU PUT IN AND LET THE SPRING WIND THE CORD BACK IN TO THE STARTER WHEEL

Poulan Wild Thing 18 Inch replace starter spring?


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

I invert and secure the starter 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 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.

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