Rebuilding a 25cc Craftsman 2 stroke engine

I had to restring the starter rope just trying to verify the correct direction of the plastic fan to ensure I have it back together correctly does the fan suppose to turn counter clockwise as that is how it is working now- seems like the blade should be going clockwise to create the most air. Thanks for your help! Bill

Pull rope will not pull out when trying to start

Disassembly will be required to get to the cause of this problem. This problem alongwith the rope being pulled out and not drawing back in are among the major consumer complaints.
Some may think the worst in this situation, that the engine has gone bad and "locked" up. Most of the time though, the problem is misalignment of all parts on the main shaft or the recoil unit itself. It is plastic and the shaft is steel and wear occurs. This can be fixed however but there is some teardown work involved and it does require mechanical abilities to do it.If you are somewhat inclined, start taking the machine apart (starting with the tube that holds the flex shaft that turns the string head). That would be your starting point, directly in front of the engine/coil/starter/flywheel assembly. You will need to remove the throttle cable from the carb and disconnnect the kill switch wire from the ignition coil. From there it is on to taking the front engine cover off (covers the clutch housing/clutch/starter recoil/flywheel/coil. So you see, there is quite a bit of disassembly involved to get to the starter recoil unit

Trying to remove a clutch rotor assembly on a craftsman trimmer and not sure how to remove it. looks like it unscrews from the shaft

It does unscrew from the shaft. The Torx screw holding it is hidden and doesn't come out of the housing once it is loosened. It is screwed into the end of the shaft. You will have to keep the engine from turning to loosen it. Pull spark plug out and move piston to bottom of stroke. Put some nice, soft, clean rope in the cylinder and let the piston compress it when you turn the Torx screw in the clutch rotor housing.

Rope to start want recoil

The starter pawls on this model are exposes to weather. You can usually spray WD-40 directly to the flywheel pawls and loosen with a screwdriver.

Broken pull starter rope

remove pulley that rope goes on, wind it with new rope, wrap it till it is full, then feed rope thru hole in housing, put pulley back in place, put rope thru pull handle, pull thru till you feel spring catch tie a knot and that should do careful when removing pulley not to dislodge recoil spring

What are the factory settings for the l & h needle valves on the 25cc carb?

usually 1 1/2 turns from snug in will be right. this is true on most all 2 stroke engines and 4 stroke that use a diapraham type carb
