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

My recoil starter won't pull out it is stuck


Just take the cover bolts for the pull cord off. Then see if it works. There are usually two cogs that engage into the shaft of the engine. These cogs push outward when you pull the cord, engaging the shaft of the engine.

Pull cord stuck open


Most likely the recoil spring broke. The engine cover has to be removed to repair this. If you are not mechanically inclined, it would be best to take it to a local small engine repair shop. Proper replacement involves knowing how many pre-wind rotations is required to properly recoil the rope. Some things are just better left to the pros.

with recoil starter removed and in hand you have to grab the housing with one and the other rewinding the reel by twisting it counter clockwise until you can't any longer every time you twist hold with other hand to prevent the reel from spinning back once your at the end align the holes and place a small screwdriver and insert it through for it to stay together without unwinding.next is to tie a knot on one end of rope feed through handle then through the aligned holes and tie other knot then you carefully remove screwdriver and your rope will reel in:)

The pull start broke. A small plastic hook shaped piece broke of What is it called and how do I repair it?f


Parts are easy to find for honda engines at the small engine shop and on the net. All that you need do is to locate the model and spec number of the engine itself and go to the link below for your parts. Some honda parts are available in assemblies only, like the complete starter. Be sure to check ebay for aftermarket parts. You may save some money. Look for a "starter pawl assembly kit" .

Laking below sprayer large rubber piece covers area that is leaking


Sounds like your thermal relief has popped and is not reseting. These are an easy replacement. Usually availble as a "thermal relief valve" in sizes 3/8npt or 1/4"npt ..national pipe thread. Might also mean that your pump is overheating. Check and replace the pump oil. Make sure you do not allow this sprayer to sit and run without triggering the gun every couple of minutes.

Honda GX 340-Used to start and run no problem, now nothing


I think both problems could be wiring in the key switch box. Sometimes the connectors shake loose.
