Question about Poulan Garden
This should help you out. Go to Poulon's website. Look for a tab to "order parts". Model is fl1500. That will take you to a page that you can look at the blower "chassis" to order parts. That shows you how the bottom housing goes together. You have to take off the bottom housing, the blower fan, the top housing. That should take you to the starter cord mechanism.

This is somewhat common in the the "zip start" machines. The recoil pulley is 2 plastic housings with a round coil spring between them. It is designed to need less effort to pull and start the machine. When pulled on with great effort/frustration, the middle spring bends and damages the upper housing. The only semi-permanent solution is to replace the pulley assembly. The part is relatively cheap thru Homelite.com. If you can do it yourself, go for it. A repair shop will most likely charge you $20 to $40 in labor to do this.
