Hello rfbarrett:

From your Description it Sounds like the Plate that is Attached to the Carburetor (that the Throttle cable Attaches to) Thru Shaft (holds and Moves the Throttle Valve) has Loosened and is Simply Turning on the Thru Shaft and Not Moving the Thru Shaft and Throttle Valve at All.

Remember the belt rule, V of the belt goes in V pulleys.Flat pulleys that are stationary or move get the back of the belt. You can figure it out. Its not rocket science. Remember at some point there has to be a tensioner,usually gets the back of the belt if its a flat pulley. U may have to remove the spring and then reattach the spring after the belt is routed.

How do I fix the pull string on a push mower?


Hi Barbara:
The pull start assembly is usually attached by 3 or 4 bolts.
Start by removing it. Depending on where the pull cord broke, you may be able to use it shortened a bit, but replacement is probably a good idea.
There is a spring inside the thing the cord winds around (spool)that retracts it after you've pulled on it. The tricky part is making sure that the spring is wound up enough after you've installed the replacement cord.
Look at the way the old cord is installed. If you can, grab it with some pointy pliers and pull it all the way out, winding up the spring tension at the same time. There should be a way to hold the spool (look for a hole you can slip the end of a nail into) so you can change the cord. Then Take the nail out and make sure the cord retracts all the way.
Next step is to re-install it on the mower.
Cheerfuls!

How to replace starter rope


Read through this completely before doing any work.

1) remove the plastic cover on the engine. Usually a couple of phillips head screws.

2) remove recoil housing. It will either come off as just the round part on top the sheet metal shroud or the entire shroud may need to be removed. You will need a rachet set for this.

3) remove any remaining pull cord from recoil pulley. You can do this by pulling the cords knot from the inside of the recoil pulley.

4) rewind the recoil in the direction of starter rope pull. Place a screwdriver once you have 7-9 turns made. The screwdriver goes between the spokes of the recoil pulley and the spokes on the recoil shroud. Align the hole in the pulley with the hole in the cover where the cord comes out. Then drop in the screwdriver.

5) get a new length of cord. *(check the old one for overall length as a guage) after melting and pointing the end of the cord push it through the outer hole till it shows at the inner hole.

6) tie a knot in the pulley end of the cord so it can be pulled back out and then remove the screwdriver while pulling tension on the recoil cord so it doesnt get totally sucked into the recoil. You should end up with about two feet of free cable dangling so you can put on the t handle and place it through the eyelet on the mower handles right side *(from operators position).

7) put the recoil cover back on the mower and try a slow pull to see if the cord has enough travel. If it doesnt, you will need to put more winds on it. Which might require more cord as well. You may want to go online and lookup your mower to see if you can find specs on how long the cord should be.

You should wear cut resistant gloves and eye protection at the very least while doing this procedure. Good luck and be careful!

I replaced the pull cord on an mtd mower. and now it won't rewind the cord?


You have to tension the spring before installing the cord. Remove the cord. Put the recoil assembly in a vise. Prepare the ends of the cord so they can be threaded into place. Spin the pulley in the proper direction until it is tight. Align the hole in the housing with the hole in the pulley. Thread the rope in and knot it and pull tight. Slowly let the spring tension retract the rope. Cut the rope to length, install handle, knot and test.

Starting issues. Can't pull cord.


Make sure your flywheel brake is not engaged or the cover is hindering the mechanism somehow after it is installed

The string that you pull to start the mower has snapped. How can I replace it or where.


You can buy a new cord from a mower repair shop. The pull- starting assembly needs to be removed and the new cord installed. A repair shop can easily do this. You can do it, too, if you have reasonable experience with mechanical repairs.
