If you have not replaced cord you will need to do this,when you fit the cord turn the pulley 4 or 5 times full circle the same way as if it was pulling cord,then feed cord through pulley and out of housing to fit handle when this is done you can let pulley recoil and you should have correct tension,hope this helps

See explaination for the recoil method. As for starting....make sure the oil level is proper. These wont start if oil is low. Remove and clean plug. Lower carb float bowl under carb and check for fuel/carb contamination. Spray carb cleaner thru jet and needle now exposed. Assemble and try. New fuel is recommended if it has been sitting for a few months. Remove air filter assembly and with carb set in non-choke, spray in engine starting fluid. Pull cord and try. Make sure on/ off switch is in on position.



Most recoil assemblies are easy to fix...but not in an obvious way. Remove the recoil asembly from the small engine housing/flywheel cover. Usually three bolts hold it on. 10mm on Honda's. Pull the remaining rope thru the exit hole if possible. Otherwise, fish remaining rope thru the hole by turning rope winding pulley as if pulling handle was still attached, lining up any remaining rope end and pushing thru the exit hole in outer recoil housing or backing it out the inside pulley. Continue to wind rope winding pulley in a counterclockwise ( facing pulley...not outer metal) untill it will not tighten any further. Remove any more old rope. Line up pulley hole and exit hole. Melt end of new rope into a tapered shape..if not supplied that way. the pulley can be held in place by inserting a screwdriver thru the both the pulley and the metal housing spokes. Thread the new rope thru the exit and pulley hole. Tie the rope end sticking thru and draw tight. Cut 6 feet of rope...if not using a presized pull. Release screwdriver from spokes and rope should draw up onto the pulley. Tie off opposite end of the rope to keep from losing that end into the exit hole. put the handle on the rope and tie a knot in the end to retain the handle. Untie the tie-off and allow the handle to fully retract. If handle does not fully retract you may shorten the rope so that it does...as long as you have plenty of pull lenght

Pull Cord has stripped and won't recoil. Can this be repaired?


Stripped? Maybe the recoil Spring just broke. Easy repair, sometimes you can just re-bend the 'Stop' on the old Spring

carburetor float is either bad or sticking.shut fuel off remove fuel bowl 10 mm bolt once removed pull pin out of float and inspect it at the same time re open fuel valve to allow fuel to push any debris the might be still in the port.re install float and test by slightly pushing the float upward and turn fuel on no fuel should drain unless you release the float if float has any fuel inside replace it if not finish putting it together and problem solved:)

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
