Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
Mother In Laws Lawn mower. I want to replace the Pull Cord. The rewind does not have any spring resistance, but I don't think the spring band is broken. I think that there is some kind of special way of doing it? The Mower has some kind of electric start key on the handle, but I am suspect of a starter, unless it is very tiny. I do see were it could possibly be, w/ a white gear, but it still has a Pull Start, and there is no battery.

You must first remove the cover assembly which houses the starter pulley. Pull the old rope completely out until it no longer moves. Hold the starter pulley and remove the old rope. Try to wind the starter pulley spring tighter if possible. DON'T LET GO. The starter rewind spring must be wound before installing the new rope. After winding the spring, thread the new rope through the cover and into the hole in the pulley. Tie a good knot in the end and let the rope wind slowly into the housing. Once you have this done, replace the cover, get the proper length of rope, thread it through the handle, tie a knot in this end and your ready to go.

If your rope broke, there was no reason to take the spring out. The rope can be replaced just by taking the rewind housing off, turning pulley to get rest of old rope out, wind the pulley (and spring) the direction the rope would be pull it when starting. Then , when it's wound tight, back off to align the holes in pulley and cover. Hold it there, stick about an 8' piece of rope from the outside through the pulley and tie a knot. Hold the rope and let the spring pull the rope back into the starter. an tie handle back. Take your housing, and spring to a shop. They can re-install the spring and put on a rope a heck of a lot cheaper that buying that whole assembly.

Remove the 3 bolts located on the flywheel housing.(should be 7/16") one in front and two on side.

This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps

Im guessing that you have started it before, so I guess , check that its not flooding ,pull air filter out see If you can see heaps of fuel in the bottom hole ,if you do take spark plug out pull cord a few times without holding start cable or you will catch on fire replace spark plug try starting ,no start still flooding take it to a lawn mower place ,float may have a hole in it , if not flooding, on the bottom of the cardy one brass nut , four holes find them clear then, start also a brass pipe going into the center of the carby is probable blocked
