How do I remove the rubber covering from the lower housing on craftsman 172.171800 recipricating saw?

James, you answered your own question. Remove the foot. The pull the pivot pin from the blade release mechanism. The lever will move to the inside of the housing. The spring is in a slot that is open-ended; you can push the spring out. Then remove the lever w/spring. The cover slides off, but not easily.

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

Rotozip lock wont release

You may have to split the housing for this. I have seen where the pin can become bent or where the plastic housing becomes worn at the pin and allows it to move around too much. They usually also have a small spring with the pin which may have failed.

Install spring on 345 guard

As you are looking at the blade side of the saw, the spring hooks through a hole at about three o'clock on the lower guard. It then wraps around the bottom of the guard clockwise and attaches to the upper guard. The hole on the upperguard should be somewhere around ten to twelve o'clock. Move the lower guard to check for binding and full return to the safe position.

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.

Installing recoil spring for Poulin P3314

Recoil Spring Rewind
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 for it 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. HTH

My Delta band saw motor is having issues. I was

I would bet it's the Motor Brushes.They are locaded on the housing of the saw, accesed by unscrewing the plug.The brushes are replaceable and your saw will be fixed.Where to buy replacents could be an issue,Check manufacturer or search power tool replacement motor brushes.If stuck you can try to unscrew the plug the brush is at the bottom engaging the motor armerure,there shoud be a spring keeping contact.Inspect brush condition it looks like a carbon block worn to the curve of the motor.Go online do a search on how electric motors work you'll see exactly what I'm explaining.Cheap part easy fix.Good Luck.

My pull start on a Poulan 3314 Chain Saw (with Spring assist start) was stuck and so I proceeded to take off the cover and rope assembly, which unwound the spring. Everything seems intact (nothing broken),...

I had (and still have) the same problem with the same saw. Like you I took it apart and the spring unwound. The way I finally got it back together was to lie it (spring down) on a flat surface near the edge. I then rewound the spring while holding the white plastice piece in place with a pair of vice grips. Once wound I slid it off the edge of the bench very slowly holding the spring in place with my fingers (carful because if you let it slip it can slice your finger) Then I set it back in holding the hooked end with a screw driver and placing the side opposite the hook in first. I managed on the first try to pop it in place and while it seems to turn and recoil fine when I put the saw back together it still sticks which prompted the repair in the first place.
