SOURCE: starter rope

First, i will take that the rope is in the front. If so, you will need to remove trimmer shaft,throttle assembly, so you will be able to remove starter housing.

The body of the spark plug has to be "grounded" to the metal on the engine when you remove it and test it. If you did it that way, OK. If there is no spark then (and it should be a nice blue color, not orange or yellow), the the "air-gap" between the ignition coil and the flywheel needs to be checked. Some disassembly is required to get to it as these parts are under the front engine cover. The air gap should be around .010" (or about the thickness of a standard business card). If the gap is too wide, the spark will be weak. If the gap is too close, the legs of the ignition coil may slightly rub on the flywheel. If you indeed have no spark, after properly testing, then check the air-gap.
If this is a fuel related issue, post back and we will address that as well.

Pull cord jammed in the lawnmower


There could be several reasons for this problem, but sometimes it is in need of a simple cleaning. Remove the 3-4 nuts holding the starter assembly on the top of the engine. Normally you will use a 10mm socket and ratchet to remove them. Turn the starter over in your hand so that you are looking at the starter pulley. Inspect the starter rope and make sure it isn't jammed between the starter pulley and the housing. If it is jammed, grab the starter rope and starter pulley and rotate them both together clockwise until the rope becomes unjammed. If the rope isn't jammed, turn the starter pulley counter clockwise gently. It will probably spring back and draw in the rope. If it retracts the rope slowly, spray WD40 around the bolt in the center of the pulley and work the pulley back and forth until the pulley frees up. If it doesn't free up or this isn't the problem, get back with me and I'll try and walk you through the rest of the repair.

My starter pulley for my "homelite mighty lite


This is a labor intensive procedure to just get to the recoil/starter unit so it can be inspected for the problem. Here is how you get there.

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #20 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-20 (Star bit or Torx head) screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a hammer and a dull flat-blade chisel or a small piece of wood unless there are bolts. then use a wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers and a good flat-blade screwdriver. Post back if needed.

Input your model number here to find a pulley. I will give you a couple of places to check.

Pull start jammed


Hi hwdunk, the best way to find the problem you are having is to remove the pull start from the trimmer. You will have to unhook the throttle cable from the carburetor, It can usually be unhooked without loosening the carb screws, but if you can't unhook the cable loosen the carb screws to unhook. As you remove the assembly you will have to unhook the 2 wires that come from the on and off switch, they just pull off. Use long nose pliers, it is much easier. Now you will see what the problem is. The rope is probably tangled up or has come off the rope pulley. I hope this helps you a bit. All the best and good luck.

Homelite 25cc model UT20002A. How to repalce starter string?


Remove the shaft assembly at the motor, there should be one or two screws on the boom clamp. Remove the four screws holding the starter housing on. Inside the front of the housing is an air baffle you don't have to remove and the starter pulley. Remove it carefully, you don't want the spring to come out of its container. Remove any vestiges of the old starter rope and install the new one with no more than three or four windings depending on the thickness of the rope you bought. Install the pulley in the housing with the rope through the slot in the pulley so you can wind it a couple times to catch the spring and start the tension. It should be tight enough to just pull the string back into the housing. Feed the rope through the hole in the housing then through the t-handle and tie a knot so it won't pull back through the handle. Put the housing on the motor, no screws yet, and pull the rope out to make sure nothing is binding and the rope retracts fully into the housing. If it's too tight use the slot in the pulley to take one winding out. If the t-handle dangles, add a turn to the pulley. Reassemble housing and boom and you're ready to go.

You will have to disassemble the unit to that point and inspect the recoil pulley (rope coils on it) and the ratchet mechanism under it and the recoil spring that draws the rope back in.
