SOURCE: recoil spring on homelite chain saw doesn't retract pull rope

Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

SOURCE: broken recoil spring

A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

SOURCE: rewind a recoil starter spring

I DID THIS SAME JOB BY WINDING THE SPRING UP IN MY HAND AND THEN TOOK 2 TWIST TIES AND WRAPPED THEM AROUND THE SPRING TO KEEP IT IN THAT CONDITION. I THEN INSTALLED THE SPRING WITH THE LONG END OF THE TWIST TIE EXPOSED AND AFTER GETTING THE ROPE HOUSING IN PLACE I PULLED THE TEWIST TIES OFF WITH SOME NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS. HOPE THIS HELPS

SOURCE: how to put a recoil spring back in

HAhaha, oh this is so funny to me cause i suffered with the same problem, you have to grip the spring with needle nose pliers and wrap it tightly back arround, gripping the new layer every revolution, it sucks i know, then VERY CAREFULLY place it back it the spring retainer

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

Spring is likely sprung out of the recoil. Take the recoil apart, rewind the cord and turn it enough to put some tension on it. Then put the cover back on.

The starter cord jammed on recoiling, after attempting got release it the recoil spring rewound, now the cord and spring are interlocked. I'm looking to strip the recoil mechanism but I believe I


Its an easy opperation to undertake if you know how. Take note of where everything goes during the stripping down of the recoil assembly. Use eye protection when trying to recoil the rewind spring, they have a tendency to jump back out at you while coiling them back in. easiest way is to start by putting the hooked end into the plastic housing and work your way inwards coiling it back in. Then place the starter cord roller in on top, adding the one or two black sliders, the washer and the spring clip to hold it all in place.

How to repair a ruger air hawk .177


well for starters, there is no firing pin, second, without major machinery, you can't fix a spring powered air rifle, any of them. It is impossible, major jigs and fixtures hold these things while the spring is removed and replaced. You might try crossman, they do a lot of repairs.

Trying to put recoil back together, how does spring go


There is a groove where the entire plastic case around the spring will go. It will only fit one way. Be careful when installing the spring, if it gets lopsided. IE. Part of the spring sits on the groove for the spring housing and the rest of the spring housing fits into the the groove, the spring will come out of the spring housing.
