SOURCE: Is there a trick to rewinding a new recoil rope on

It's not too bad, but it takes patience. Determine the desired length of the pull cord. You normally do this by placing as much of the old rope together as you can and then measuring it. Obtain the proper diameter line from your dealer, or a big box store. Put a knot in one end of the pull cord, and make sure that the other end isn't fuzzy, as you will be threading that end through the reel and shroud hole. An easy way to prep the line is to light the end with a lighter until it melts, then touch it to something and then pull it away slowly. This will leave you a fused end with a taper on it. Remove the shroud. With the shroud off, wind the reel tight. While holding the reel under tension with one hand, thread the tapered end of the line through the reel and out the hole of the shroud. Pull the line all the way through, and seat the knot. Place a knot about 6" from the end on the tapered end that you passed backwards through the shroud. If your pull cord passes through an eyelet on the handle, away from the shroud, thread the line through this before tying the knot. Slowly, release the pressure that you've been holding on the reel, and allow the reel to feed in the pull cord. The knot will not allow your line to be retracted fully into the shroud. Install the handle, and untie the knot in the line. Reinstall the shroud onto the machine.
Hope that this was helpful. You may rate this solution, if you like.
Best regards, --W/D--

Is Ariens ST 270 a 2 stroke or 4 stroke engine?

It is a 4 stroke engine made by Tecumseh. It is 2.7 horsepower, but I don't know the model # of the engine itself. Try going to Ariens website. With a little digging around, you should be able to get a manual from them that shows all the parts. Also try finding an Ariens dealer near you. They should be able to find and order parts.

I have MTD Yard machine and don't know if it is 2 or 4 cycle. Oil should be-SAE30. Can I use oil for 4-cycle which they soid me i Can. Tire.(M otomaster)

If your mower has seperate fill caps for the oil and the gasoline, then you have a 4 cycle or 4 stroke engine. In this case use SAE HD30 motor oil. If there is only 1 fill cap and it says oil & fuel mix, then you have a 2 cycle or 2 stroke engine.
Good luck

On my tecumseh tiller the rope broke and the setup has rivets instead of screws is there another way to get it off without removing the rivets?

I'm guessing you have a 3.5 or 4HP 4 stroke with the recoil built into the top of the housing? If so, just remove the entire blower housing. It's only 4 bolts. You can then disassemble the recoil assembly to replace the rope.
