Question about Troy-Bilt 25cc 2-Cycle Backpack Blower with Harness Padded Design #41AR2BPG966

Open Question

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

I can't pull the starter cord. It is stuck

You have one of three problems.
1) The engine is flooded/hydrolocked. Pull the spark plug and see if the pull starter frees up.
2) Unit was left out and got wet. Take starter assembly off unit and see if is rusty and shoot penetrating oil into spring housing avoiding the rope area.
3) Damaged starter assembly from animal infestation or debris sucked in from leaf blowing. All you can do is buy a replacement unit and swap it up.

Good luck and be safe!

I have a Craftsman 794774 leaf blower/vac w/25cc engine that won't start.

Many of these small blowers have an alloy key moulded into the flywheel, if this has sheared it will knock the ignition timing out, and will never run.

When i pull the cord all it does is makes a clicking noise but doesnt start

You need to remove the recoil starter, There are two plastic pawls or (dogs), that engage the starter cup when you pull the starter rope. It sounds like they or it (the last one), came off and was ground up by the fly wheel. The only way to know is to remove the plastic, shroud and you will see if you have broken pieces of plastic, usually white, in there. If so you need two new ones and the clips.

Pull cord came completly off I have a replacement but need step by step intruction in replacing cord on housing

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.
I hope this helps.

Craftsman 25cc 2-Cycle Blower/Vac only runs with choke on

Your engine is starving for fuel. Tyipically rebuilding the carb is a quick fix. If you can remove the carb and look at the face of it, you should see a brand and model #. Use this to purchase a carb kit with the needle and metering diaphram or have a mechanic rebuild the carb.

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 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.

Starter cord is stuck. Will not retract. What do I do

I spent a lot of time, but I found that most of the problems with this starter rope etc, are caused by the starter assembly being too tightly mounted to the motor assembly causing drag on the rope mechanism.
I fixed the problem by adding spacer washers between the starter and the engine mount (two small washers on each of the 5 or 6 mounting bolts adding about 1/4 inch of clearance.
Now even my wife can start this machine..

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
