You may want to check the oil level, some units can leak gas through the carb and into the cylinder. thus raising your oil level and making it hard to turn over.

Hard pulling starter rope


You say Pull rope mechanism is ok, How do you know that? Ive's seen them get the rope a little off and gets caught being wedged into a small clearance. Is the rope wearing? I bet if you take it apart put a new nylon rope and some wd-40 in rubbing surfaces including the ratchet area it will be good as new. Crank bearing has to get really bad to effect pull. How is the spark?

Weed eater featherlight XT260 rope pully


Your recoil could be messed up if you cant pull the rope out or if its just too hard to pull out you could have it too tight.

My yard pro lawn mower will not start, when i try to pull start it the crank rope vets pulled back sometimes


Two things to check here, check the blade is tight, it acts as a flywheel so needs to be tight, second, check the flywheel key has not sheared as this will cause the engine to kick back as the timing will be out.

HOW TO PRELOAD THE PULL STRING ON CRAFTMAN MODEL358791050


You hand winde it in a CCW direction BEFORE installing the rope all the way until you feel significant resistance. (It really helps if there are 4 hands doing this). You then align the pulley knot hole with the rope guide but letting it rotate CW until it just lines up. Have that 2nd pair of hands GRASP the pulley tightly. Then pass your rope throught the rope guide and into the knot hole of the pulley. Tie 1 small tight knot and PULL hard on the rope to seat the knot in the hole. Let go of the pulley and the rope will spring wind into the starter recoil assembly. Sounds easy.. but can be quite tedious.

See this link for pictures.

Crank rope extreemly hard to pull.


Take the spark plug out to see if there is fuel in the cylinder...drain it out if there is lubricant in the cylinder.....pull the rope a few times and then go back to normal start procedures.

Chain saw won't start - pull starter pulley hard to pull?


If it worked fine the last time you used it, then pull the spark plug and try pulling the rope. See if it's easier or if gas shoots out of the plug hole. I've seen this happen when the diaphram in the carb goes bad from sitting over winter. It loads up the cylider with fuel and makes it very difficult to pull the rope. If there is no fuel in the cyliner and it's still hard to pull, make sure there is nothing binding the clutch/sprocket. I've had chucks of wook lodged in there that caused it to bind the crank output, which resulted in a hard pull on the rope as well.

Sound like you have the typical "frozen" crank bolt. To remove it, it's counter clockwise. What you do to remove it when it's frozen, pull #1 spark plug out, rotate crank so #1 piston is at the bottom of the cylinder. Now take a long piece of rope and stuff it into the spark plug hole as much as you can. Use a screwdriver to keep stuffing rope into cylinder. The rope is now a piston stop. When turning the crank counter clockwise to remove it, you'll feel the crank stop. Now you can crank on the wrench to break the bolt loose. I use a long 1/2" drive breaker bar, long 1/2" extension, and a jack stand to support the extension and with a jack handle over the breaker bar, pull hard and you'll hear a loud pop. At this point the bolt will break loose for you. Don't worry you will not break the crank bolt doing this. After the bolt breaks loose, rotate the crank clockwise again just enough the remove the rope.

Crankshaft bolt removal on 94 accord


Ok, what you do is remove #1 spark plug. Position the piston in that cylinder so it's at the bottom. Get a long piece of rope and stuff as much of it into the spark plug hole as you can. This is now your piston stop. Now place your socket onto the crank pulley bolt and remove it. You may need a long breaker bar or slip a floor jack handle over what you're using and loosen the bolt. If the piston rotates all the way around, you'll have to stuff more rope in the cylinder. Use a long screwdriver to cram it in there. You'll hear a loud pop and that's when the bolt has broken loose. Before you take the bolt out, rotate the engine the other way to get the rope back out. For some reason the Honda crank bolts are on there really tight.
