Tecumseh lh318sa auger does not work


If you are asking about the pull cord and when you pull it the engine does not turn and the cord pulls super easy it generally means that the dogs inside the cove assembly are not engaging. This may be caused by a broken spring or dog inside the pull cord assembly. You would need to carefully remove the assembly cover from the engine and pull the cord to see if the dogs are protruding from the assembly if not you would need to repair or replace the parts as needed if so then you would have to check if the will still extend under strain, if not then repair if they still protrude under strain you would have to examine the engine where the unit was removed and look for damage or wear and replace parts accordingly. If you are in fact asking about the front or snow auger on the snow blower itself then the most likely answer would be that you have sheared a pin which holds the auger to the shaft that rotates it. The shear pins (as they are called) are designed with softer metal to break if you hit a large piece of ice, stick or rock that may damage more important and expensive parts of the blower if they stayed intact during the incident. To fix this merely find the hole in the auger along the shaft that is no longer pinned (the auger should spin freely) spin it to line up with the hole n the shaft (which may still have a broken piece of the shear pin in it) drive out any remaining pin with a punch and replace with the appropriate pin for your machine. If the pins are intact you may have a bad belt, pulley, or tensioner and you would have to move further into the repair process.

I was tilling an area. It quit. There was still gas in it. When I tried to restart, the cord would not pull. I checked to see if anything was wrapped around the blades or stuck between the blades and...


It doesn't sound good. I would say that it probably seized up on you. The best way to determine that without tearing it apart is to ask yourself how it was running right before it quit. If it was running extremely well right before it quit, then you probably blew it up (seized)!

My pull cord will not retract


The coil spring has either broken or come loose inside the pull rope housing. You must disassemble the housing to fix it.

I have a Troy-bilt 2-cycle trimmer "TB70SS" which apparently has no spark, might be the problem and how do I fix it?


Begin by changing the spark plug, and checking to be sure that the fuel is fresh [less than a month old]. The best way to check for sure to see if you have spark is to unscrew the spark plug, hook it up to the wire and then pull on the cord. You should see spark. This works best with an assistant to pull while you hold the spark plug 1/2 inch from the metal on the machine.

I waz starting the awn mower and had resistince from the pull cored so i pulled and now the pull cored is dangolling and want trigger a start


Soundas like the rewind spring is broken. Remove the top housing and see if you can reset the spring by removing the cord, hook up the broken end, rewind the spring with a screw driver...lock it in the tension position and then reinstall the cord.

Handle ripped off Mantis tiller


Good job on the cord replacement. Most people take the cover off the spring and then find out it is nearly impossible to get the spring tension set. I have personally repaired dozens of these cords that have been messed up by owners that did that.
If anyone has this problem, just do what this post says...remove the assembly and turn the pulley until you can get to the part of the cord that is broken...grab the end that is broken after you get it out of the opening with a vise grip and pull the cord out fully and lock the recoil spring with a vise or vise grip (but don't crush it)...then replace the cord and hold the end of the cord pull fully extended and remove the lock and allow the spring to recoil...and reinstall the assembly.
Simple, but THINK before you take the housing apart. It is REALLY TOUGH to reset spring tension properly.

Pull cord stuck


it sounds like the recoil spring in the "housing" is jammed( or something is broken) youll have to take this apart without breaking it. you may have internal engine damage if it was unusually hot and the pullcord jammed. try using a richer oil mixture for fuel also if you fix the pullcord. hope this helps, keep me posted.

remove the spark plug.  And pull the cord again.  if the carb float is stuck down or you overfilled the oil you could be hydro-locking the engine.  Check.
