Was running fine stopped it to take a break went to restart pulled the cord and now its all the way out and wont retract back in any ideas how to fix it without having to tear it all apart or take it into a repair shop and pay an arm and a leg to fix not sure of the model its a friends weedeater I jerked the starter pull-cord out of my TB70SS gas trimmer. I began taking it apart and couldn't get past the centrifugal clutch. How is that removed? It needs to come off so the engine cover can be removed and the string spool re-threaded.

Take a light and look into the clutch hole
you will either need a torx or star type nut driver or a allen or hex head nut driver to fit in the hole and turn the screw ccw while holding the flywheel.
Make note where all comes off and all goes back in reverse when fixed.also after you remove the clutch housing you will be stareing at the clutch shoes next and it will have markings on which way to turn it for removal.

How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".
Cheers..

Pull cord broke on my lawn boy mower,new cord won't retract??


I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind up the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain
