SOURCE: broken pull cord

ur going to have to unmount the the motor from the shaft

step 1. Unbolt throttle housing

step 2. now with that out of the way u should see a clamp holding the motor to the shaft, loosen and pull the shaft out, there will be a cable, so make sure u have it lined up so it goes back into place

step 3, look at the back of the motor, u should see screws going into the plastic housing (coming in from back going into plastic)

step 4. once that is off pull the broken part of the cord out

step 5. wind up the starter coil, (it will only wind up one way) its spring loaded so be carful, once it stops back it off 1 full turn

step 6. u will see a hole for the cord in the housing and in the coil, make sure they are lined up

step 7. insert the cord through both holes, tie it as tighttttt as possible, then let the spring do the rest

step 8. put it back together

SOURCE: broken pull cord

You have to take four allen screw out of the plastic that holds the engine on. There is also one by the spark plug that needs to come out. Once the engine is loose, you have to unplug one wire and unscrew the other. Then the engine should come off. Then loosen the two allen screws holding the pulley in and it will come out.

SOURCE: broken rop on weedeater gas trimmer

There is a spring under the starter spool, the one with the rope on it, leave the spring ALONE, Just take the spool and replace the rope as it is. You take the spool off, put the new rope on the spool, place the spool onto the spring and by holding one end of the rope straight up in one of the slots on the spool, go as many times as you can. When you have it as tight as it can go, hold your thumb down on the spool. Insert the rope through the hole available, grab the rope on the other side of the hole, (outside the casing). Hold the rope and S-L-O-W-L-Y allow the rope to retract. If it finishes before the rope runs out, pull on the rope and install the handle. If it tries to go beyond, hold the rope and install the handle there. Hope you have luck. Remember, leave the spring alone...Lee

SOURCE: Replacing pull cord on weedeater

there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.

When I pull start rope on my Craftsman 32cc 4 cycle weedeater . . . engine does not turn over . . . when I let go of the rope and it retracts . . . what is wrong?


There are 2 dogs or fingers that expand out to grab the flywheel when the rope is pulled They are sticking and can not expand or slide out. Remove the recoil unit and free them up When the recoil unit is off pull the rope and watch the action

How do i fix the pull cord when it breaks


You need to take the cover off of the pulley and the spring loaded spinner, housing the rope..the pulley is sitting on the top crank shank of the motor..the spinner sits on it..the rope is attached to the spinner via a knot in a slot or hole..remove the old broken rope and measure the two parts..using an equal amount of new rope attach the new rope using the old one as an example and wrap it clockwise until there is enough rope left to be fed back through the cover..and attach the T handle Note..the T handle should have a small door on one end to feed and tie the rope on..you can see this when your remove the old rope from the T handle..should be ready to go..just watch the steps when removing the broken one and do in reverse..Good luck

How do you take the outer shell off the engine of my Poulan 446 T pole saw/weedeater. I need to replace the pull cord. Also, how to properly install a new pull cord. Thank you. Don


I do not have knolage of how to take off the cover but I have replaced start cords on other saws. There is a hole in the pully you put the rope through and then tie a knot it it so it won't pull out.Usually there is a half circle in the edge of the pulley you place the rope in so you can wind up the spring but not take up the rope. You will need to count the turns the pulley makes when the rope is pulled out then add one or two more turns so the rope is pulled in snug. Then you take the rope out of the notch and let it coil up nomally.

Pull rope does not return


Unless the rope has broken, you dont need to replace it. The problem is probably the rewind spring. It is located under the starter pulley (the one the rope is in). The best thing to do is pull the unit apart and see if you can see if maybe there is something holding the rope up. The spring is a little dangerous to replace. If you go for it, be careful....Lee
