Replacing starter pull cord on 77 20hp mercury


Remove the starter housing from the top of the motor and see if the spring broke or back wound it's self when the rope broke. If all is well remove the rest of the rope from the spool by feeding it back thru the guide hole the handle rests on. Wind it out and find a hole drilled thru the spool and put a punch thru it to lock the spool in place against the spring pressure. Remove the old cord. If it has a steel hook glued to the anchor end you will need a real mercury part. If it has a knot. your in luck.

Take your new cord and burn one end and roll the cord to a point while it is still molten. Tie your knot and heat it till it is cooked so it won't untie itself. Feed the pointy end thru the spool and out the front of the housing. Tie a knot it it where the handle would go. Gently feed the rope on to the spool when you remove the punch.

You will have more rope than the spring could wind. so untie the end knot and feed it back to the spool and put the cord in the notch of the spool so it won't rub on the housing and wind a few more turns into the spring .

When it has enough pressure to completely wind the cord up. put the punch back in the lock hole and feed the cord out the hole thru the handle and knot it, then cook that knot as well.

I need to know how to replace the nylon cord in my FS 55RC trimmer.


Hi s cowdroy, I will try to help you out. You have to remove the spool from the head. There are different ways this is done depending on the brand. At the bottom you will see different systems, that you either turn or just pull out. You will have to try just pulling or turning and also some might have left hand threads. As you remove the spool remember how everything goes back in. When you look at the bottom of the spool, different brands have different ways of attaching the cutting cord. One will have an eyelet, another will have holes that the cord fits snugly, etc. Some manufacturers use tape, and that is what I use on every machine I restring. I use packing tape, I wrap it around the cord and then tape it to the bottom of the spool. On the spool will be indicated the way to wrap the cord. When wrapping the cord do it in neat rows to prevent tangling that you will have to clear all the time. Something else to prevent tangling, is to wrap the same way you unwrap it, in other words put the spool and the roll of new cord end to end, and as you roll it on the spool you unroll it from the new roll. I hope you understand what I mean. Do not put too much cord on the spool, leave about 1/4" from top. To install the spool make sure it is the same way you took it out. Insert the cord through the eyelet of the head and install the spool in the same way it came out.
Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. Denis.

Pullstart cord replacement


If this is like most simple mowers (using briggs & stratton engines and some others) the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You may have to first remove a plastic shroud (which might include the gas tank - which should have a shut-off valve). Then you should be able to remove the metal cover that includes the recoil starter. When you get that off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 3 to 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

Pull cord pulled out from machine,how do i replace and is there a spring invoved in the replacement?


Yes, there is a spring, but it's not too bad to work with, but there will be a fair number of screws to remove.

Broken pull cord on my manual start Troy-bilt Pony tiller - is this an easy do-it-yourself project?


It's definitely do-it-yourself in that no special tools or skills are required, but it can be a little tricky. You can see that the the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You have to remove the entire metal cover that includes the recoil starter. There may be 6 to 10 screws to remove to do that. When you get it off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

How to replace pull cord


You didn't give a specific model, but on most briggs & stratton engines (which most toro mowers use) the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You may have to first remove a plastic shroud (which might include the gas tank - which should have a shut-off valve). Then you should be able to remove the metal cover that includes the recoil starter. When you get that off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord.

Broken recoil start on tecumseh 6.5 hp


broken cord? remove bolts holding recoil housing.lift housing straight up,you may have to wiggle it a bit.turn housing over,remove any cord thats left,note how & where it connects to the spool.wind the spool [and consquently the spring under it]in the direction the cord would turn it as pulled when starting.hold spool tight.thread new cord through hole in housing.let spool turn back just enough to attach new cord.hold cord & housing,let spring "re-coil" cord slowly.check for smooth operation.replace housing.you may need to pull cord slightly to align 'square' shaft w/hole in spool.only after you are satisfied with the operation of it adjust length of cord by pushing excess cord through the handle,tie a new knot,then cut off excess,if any.

Please note ! patients is required with this one !
Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)
