    Wind it up the Direction that has the Most Resistance. After installed this will allow the Recoil to Recoil back after you Pull the Start Rope.

How do I replace the starter (pull) rope on a toro ccr2450 (model 38413)?


Although it looks like you simply un-bolt the recoil starter you need remove the whole blower (flywheel) housing as there are nuts on the back side.
  • Once the housing is off, remove the broken rope and prepare a length of rope to replace it base upon the old ropes length. Probably close to 6 feet.Don't forget to put the pull handle on the new rope.
  • Tighten the recoil pulley in the direction it normally turns as you pull the rope out until it stops.
  • Slowly back of up to one turn to align the hole in the pulley with the housing hole and hold it in that position while you insert the rope and try a sturdy knot.
  • Slowly let recoil assembly pull the rope back in and test that it is working properly before re-installing the housing.
  • Once you are satisfied that the recoil is working properly re-install the remaining covers.

Rope broke


Starter rope is sold at home centers like Lowes and Homedepot. It is important to buy the same thickness of rope so that an ample amount will fit into rewind spool(starter rope is sold by size from 3.5 to 6.5) . Remove the starter cover /fan cover if the starter is riveted to fan cover (or just remove the pull rewind if bolted on). With cover removed, notice how the rope enters thru bushing and ties onto spool. Visualize in which direction the spool turns when you pull the rope. This is the direction that you will be winding the spool. Fish out the old rope and wind the spool in the direction mentioned above. The spool will get tighter as you wind. When the spool will not wind another turn, back-off one turn and align hole in spool to bushing on cover. Insert rope thru bushing into hole and tie knot (any knot that will not obstruct motor parts). At this point allow the rewind to take-in the rope to stop at handle. Test your work. The rope will break if you try to start the washer under load. Press trigger on wand to release pressure. Also the rope is stressed when the operator has a very long strong arm and pulls out the rope to bottom out at the knot. Good luck with your repair

Starter rope on UST generator got behind wheel. Took cover off and spring unwound. Rewound spring inside starter rope wheel. Every time try to wind rope spool back inside cover and replace, inner spool...


Hi, W/D here.

Go at it from the other end. Take the handle off of the rope. If you have a fine piece of wire, attach it securely to the handle end of the rope; you'll use the wire to feed the rope back through in a moment. Wind the spring and starter wheel. When it's getting about as tight as you want it, align the knot hole with the shroud grommet. Feed the pull rope and wire through the knot hole, and out the shroud grommet, and pull the line all the way through, down to the knot. Catch the free end and put a slip knot in it, so it can't whizz on back into the reel. Attach the pull handle, and release the slip knot.
Best regards, W/D

Need to relace starter rope

Remove the cover from the side of the blower that contains the pull start. This usually involves removing the self-tapping screws that join the two halves of the blower housing together.

  • Remove the broken rope from the starter pulley. Usually the rope is attached to the pulley with a simple overhand knot; just grab the knot and pull the rope back through the hole in the pulley. Sometimes the rope is attached to the pulley with a staple or some other fastener, which you'll have to remove first.
  • 3 Remove the handle from the replacement rope, if it's already attached.
  • 4 Thread the end of the rope opposite the handle through the hole in the starter pulley, working from the inside of the pulley (the side facing in toward the engine).
  • 5 Fasten the rope to the pulley. If it attaches with a knot, simply tie an overhand knot, pull it tight and trim off any excess rope sticking out of the knot. If it attaches with a fastener, replace the fastener.
  • 6 Wrap the rope counterclockwise around the pulley until the pulley is full; this usually involves one or two wraps.
  • 7 Thread the free end of the rope through the hole in the blower housing.
  • 8 Replace the blower housing and screw it in place.
  • 9 Trim off excess rope, leaving about 6 inches of rope protruding from the blower housing.
  • 10 Attach the handle to the starter rope. This typically involves threading the rope through one or two holes in the handle and securing with an overhand knot.

    Broken starter cord on briggs and stratton quantum 40 roughly 1994 how to repair


    Remove the recoil. Sometimes depending up on model this required complete air shroud removal. Remove the parts of the old rope. Remove the rope fro the rope handle. NOTE the knot in the handle. Brun both ends of the nylon rope with a match and pinch the burned end into as small of circumference as possible. Install new rope into the starter handle and tie the knot. Pull the new rope into the handle until it seats securely.

    Prewind the recoil pulley as far as you can easily wind it. Back it off (unwind) just until the rope guide and pulley knot hole are aligned. Then either c-clamp it in place with the rope knot hole aligned with the rope guide hole or have a 2nd person hold it the pretensioned spring and pulley in position. Thread the rope through the rope guide and on into the pulley knot hole. (takes some effort to get it aligned and through the knot hole!) Pull the new rope through the knot hole and tie 1 knot. Pull starter rope and fit knot into pulley knot hole. Release pulley C-clamp or have helper let go of pulley. Rope should rewind into the recoil.

    Reinstall recoil / air shroud. Happy mowing!

    The pull string broke how. how do i put the new one on?


    Go to a hardware store and ask them if they have ant bulk pull starter rope. Buy about 3 feet or so of the small stuff (it is only 30 or 40 cents a foot, cheaper that the kits) Remove the motor cover with the pull start and turn it so you can see the wheel inside. Remove the knot that held the old rope in the handle and then cut the knot on the starter wheel and pull out the tag left in there.
    Now the fun part. The wheel is spring loaded and the spring has no tension on it after the rope broke. Wind it up like a clock spring until it is tight then back off until the holes where the cord goes line up. Stick a small screw driver, nail, ect in the slot to keep it from unwinding . Do not tie the handle to the cord yet. Slide the new cord through the hole in the cover and wheel and then tie a knot in the cord and pull it snug in the wheel. Hold the rope and remove the pin and let the cord slowly wind itself up. Run the cord through the hole in the handle, Adjust to the length of pull you want and tie another knot.
    Reinstall the motor cover (if it binds and wont go on, pull the rope just a little bit to line up the crank with starter wheel and it will slide down.)

    It sounds a bit windy but it really is a simple fix.

    My lawnmower starter pull rope broke and i wanted to replace it myself to the something i can do myself. It is a craftsman 7.0 horsepower push lawn mower. Any body with step by step instructions and what...


    The biggest thing you need is time. There are no special tools required but it sure helps of there are 2 people available to perform this task.

    You will have to remove the recoil assy if it can be removed without the air shroud or the entire upper engine cover / air shroud with the recoil. This procedure should be performed by 2 people that are NOT distracted.

    First you will have to have a replacement rope. Burn the end of the new rope your going to install into the spool and pinch it so that the end is smaller than the rope and pointed. Install the pull handle on the new rope and make sure there is a good single knot on the end of the rope that goes into the pull handle.

    Next you will have to remove all pieces of the old starter rope.

    Then you have to pre-wind the spring of the recoil so that if you were to allow it to turn, it would turn in a direction that would pull the starter rope onto the recoil spool.

    NOTE: Once the pre-wind is done if anyone lets go of the spool it can DAMAGE the recoil spring!

    When your prewinding... Turn the spool until snugs and does not want to move anymore. Then back off the spool until the rope KNOT hole is aligned with the recoil rope guide.
    Thread the new rope through recoil rope guide and into the KNOT hole in the spool. (Ice pick scribe jewlers screwdriver... will be required to pull the new rope up and out through the knot hole. Then TIE a KNOT in the bitter end of the rope and pull the knot into the knot hole on the spool.
    FINALLY have 2nd person release the spool and it will rewind onto the spool.

    Install the recoil / air shroud.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    Pull cord broke on my lawn boy mower,new cord won't retract??


    I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind up the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain

    If your rope broke, there was no reason to take the spring out. The rope can be replaced just by taking the rewind housing off, turning pulley to get rest of old rope out, wind the pulley (and spring) the direction the rope would be pull it when starting. Then , when it's wound tight, back off to align the holes in pulley and cover. Hold it there, stick about an 8' piece of rope from the outside through the pulley and tie a knot. Hold the rope and let the spring pull the rope back into the starter. an tie handle back. Take your housing, and spring to a shop. They can re-install the spring and put on a rope a heck of a lot cheaper that buying that whole assembly.
