When pulling the rope to start it doesn't grab for about 5-6 pull

When pulling the rope to start it doesn't feel like its trying to start the engine. It just pulls out real easy & fast - no friction. It takes about 5-6 pulls until you feel like it's grabbing to start. If it doesn't start then you have to go through the long process again hoping it will grab & start

Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws on the outside of the plate that is part of the pull string housing, there are 2 centrifugal pegs that are sticking due to trimmings getting in that area. Inspect, and clean the pegs that fly out when you pull the string. Do not oil (that will only attract more junk later), make sure they are free, and come out when you pull the string. And your problem will be solved.

When I pull start rope on my Craftsman 32cc 4 cycle weedeater . . . engine does not turn over . . . when I let go of the rope and it retracts . . . what is wrong?


There are 2 dogs or fingers that expand out to grab the flywheel when the rope is pulled They are sticking and can not expand or slide out. Remove the recoil unit and free them up When the recoil unit is off pull the rope and watch the action

Why is the rope starter not engaging the motor how do i fix it or do i need to return it


Try pulling the rope slowly until the starter engages the flywheel (you should feel when it engages) then give a good pull to start the engine. Don't give the rope a quick hard pull in one motion. You will probably need to do this three or four times before the engine starts. Of course push the primer button the number of times called for in your engine instructions before trying to start the engine. If you still don't think the starter is engaging the flywheel if would take it back where you bought it if it's new.

Tecumseh pull start engine on Craftsman Lawn Vac will not pull. Feels like engine is locked up.


the engine is probably not locked ! remove the plug wire, tip up and see if the blade turns. if so, try the rope again. if it wont pull, take top off mower off to investigate the pull rope problem. good-day !

I have just purchase a Sears 22 Lawm mower, with a Briggs and Stratton 158cc engine. I prime the motor it act like it wants to start but then dies. I pull it and try to strat it several more times and it...


The procedure for starting an engine is as follows:
  • Check that you have the throttle in the start position and/or on high revs with choke on
  • Prime the engine by pushing the button about 5 times
  • Pull out the cord until you meet resistance. Then let the cord go fully back into the engine and then pull the cord out sharply. Repeat this until the engine starts but not more than a few times.
  • If the engine doesn't start, try pressing the primer button another few times then try to pull start the engine
  • If the engine doesn't start after a few pulls it may have flooded so leave it for a few minutes before pulling the starter rope

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

Repair of pull start to garden blower


To replace the pull cord line:

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case, purchase rope of the correct length (or cut) and the correct diameter at your local lawn/garden store, then:
1. Disconnect the long drive shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts). You may need to disconnect a wire to the kill-switch at this time.
3. Pull the cord until it stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.
6. Feed line through the recoil housing and into the recoil. Pass line through the hole in the recoil and knot the end. Trip to about .25 inch tail. Pull the rope through the grab handle and single or double knot this.
7. Remove the wedge and allow the spring to pull the rope back into the recoil.
8. If it does not completely recoil, either your rope is too long or you will need to add a "wind" to your spring buy removing the line and wind back 1 more turn. Retry.

Good luck!

Doesn,t engage with engine


sounds like the dogs and or springs are worn.When you had the cover off the machine did you check that the dogs would freely move out when the rope was pulled? They some times stick and will not engage.

Cannot get my trimmer started.


Tom, it sounds like part of the rope has jumped off of the spool. There should be a small piece of plastic with a screw holding the spool in place. It may have worked itself loose.
