Prevent rope from fraying and unravelling


Whenever you are using rope for a long period of time there is always the chance that it will break or start to fray on the ends. You don't have to fret when your rope begins to fray because all is not lost! There is very simple fix and the best part is you probably have all the things that you will need.

What you are going to need is the rope that is fraying, a knife (like a box cutter), electrical tape and a lighter.

Depending on the type of rope that you have you might be able to by pass using electrical tape. Some ropes have a bit of plastic in them so you can just melt the end a little bit and it will fuse the end together. In this case all you have to do is hold the frayed end of the rope over the lighter until the end is melted. Wait for the rope to cool and you are ready to use it.

In the case that the rope you have does not have a plastic in it you will have to follow a few more steps. Start by wrapping the frayed end of the rope with a little electrical tape. Don't wrap it right on the frayed part, you want to tape the part that is still whole. Use two or three layers to make sure that it is tight and secure.

When it is wrapped tighly, take you box cutter and on a hard surface saw through the taped rope near the frayed end. Its a good idea to use a strong thick knife for this because you don't want to break the blade when you apply pressure to it. Depending on the tickness of the rope this should be fairly easy.

After its been cut you can stop here, the rope will hold together inside of the tape. If you want a little more insurance that it wont unravel you can melt the end of the rope. To do this carefully hold the tape end over the flame of a lighter and allow the tape to melt down into the rope. This will create a sort of plastic end on the rope keeping the strings together and inside of the tape.

Both of these methods will work to fix a freyed end of a rope and will prevent the rope from fraying further. I have seen soliders use these methods to fix the frayed ends of their shoe laces, if its good enough for them, its good enough for me.

Tip

Not all ropes are created equally


Choosing the wrong type of rope for the purpose you are going to be using it for can result in injury and / or broken property. It may seem to you that some ropes are a little thicker than others, or that some feel stronger than some others. It is very important that you know what you are going to be using your rope for and doing a little research before you walk into a hardware store and blindly buy just any rope.

For water skiing the ropes that come with the ski isn't made to handle shock loading, this is when the rope goes completely slack and then get taught very quickly. This can lead to injury should the rope snap. This is why many water skiers and water tubers go out to buy replacement ropes.

There are many different strengths of towing ropes and cables, the recommended strengths for tubing are 3,350 lb. break strength, 4,100 lb. break strength and 6,000 lb. break strength. A regular rope that you might pick up at a hardware store might only have a break strength of 1,350 lb. which is not strong enough. Also when you buy the rope specially made it will have the knots already in the rope so you don't have to tie them yourself. When you do tie the knots yourself it tends to reduce the strength of the rope.

Its always better to be safe than sorry. When it comes to safety in a water sport don't take your chances with the cheaper rope, buy the right stuff!

I pull the cord to start my tiller and it does not engage the engine how do i fix


Hello sir,This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine,remove any plastic outer cover, empty and remove fuel tank lay on the deck,tecumseh engines remove the screw on the oil filler cap,remove the four bolts holding housing on. to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again.or you will need a new rope,you can get new rope at most home improvement centers that sell mowers, comes with handle, You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow. hope this helps,don't forget the 4 thumbs up,any comment welcome,thank you. Hello sir, Pull rope installation, place mower on a good work surface, empty the fuel,remove the fuel tank,lay tank on mower deck,remove any plastic outer cover,now remove engine metal cover housing,there should be four bolts or screws in housing,remove old rope,get new rope from your local repair shop you will need 5 ft of # 5 rope,ok remove pull handle from old rope,burn both ends of new rope to prevent fraying,lets install new rope,place housing in your left hand holding against your body turn pulley right to left until stops,back off until holes line up,you might want to put a screwdriver through the cover grates to keep pulley from turning,tie a knot in one end of rope,put other end through holes from the inside out through pulley,pull until tight,now let rope wind up slowly until stops mark where rope stops,pull rope out about half way clamp rope or tie so rope don't go back in,cut rope at mark put handle on untie rope let rope retract.you should be good to go,hope this helps,,any comments welcome.thank you. !!

Need to replace the pull cord


Hello, you will need to pull the front cooling cover on the chain saw.. There will be some screws but normal they will tor-ex screw/Allen head screws. Now look at the front cover and where the pull rope goes through it---they might be some holding a cover over the pull rope mechanism. If there are then your are in luck. You wouldn't have to take the front air shroud off.
But, if you have to take the front air shroud off, remove the screws, the handle bar, empty the fuel and oil reservoirs and leave the caps.
DON'T REMOVE the kick back handle. This connected to a braking system, so just leave it alone.

I don't know what type of chain saw you have and this a general type of instruction for remove the front cover on you chain saw. I wish you lots of luck. Just take your time and you will get done. GB...stewbison

Troy-bilt pull rope torx screw: Is there a trick to remove the torx screw in the center of the starter spring housing?


There is no trick, you would just use a torx screw driver. If your spring isn't broken don't do this. If your rope is broken you can fix easily. Replace old rope with new rope of equal size, place rope into spring wheel and turn counter clock wise holding the spring wheel. place other end of rope thru hole in shroud, remember to hold tight you have a lot of tension there. Pull rope thru enough to tie a knot, replace your pull handle , untie the knot and you should be fine. GOOD LUCK.

Good day, The pull cord on my friends coleman powersport 1850 was cut and i have not been able to find any info on how to remove the pulley to repair it.The pulley cover is riveted to the the fly wheel...


Don't drill out the rivets. You have to remove the larger cover as one unit. There are several screws, some of which might be covered by labels. When you go to replace the rope, you have to pre-load the spring. You can do this by winding an extra long rope on the pulley, extracting about half of it through the normal hole (thereby winding up the return spring), and cutting off the extra rope that you have extracted. Be sure to tie a knot in the rope before you cut it so you don't lose the end of it back inside. If the pulley doesn't provide enough room to wind the extra rope, you can also preload the spring by turning the pulley (in the direction that would "push" the rope out through the hole) about 5 revolutions before you put the end of the rope through the hole. Good luck! Al K

Rope does not retract


The key is that the spring has to be under tension when winding the rope. For such a simple device these things can be a real pain in the a**. I have fixed a lot of them but they can be so frustrating anymore I just take it to the shop and pay about $15 to have it fixed. This is one of those jobs the shop usually loses money on because it's not a whole lot easier even if you know exactly how to do it.
