Coleman powermate vangaurd 9hp. how long is the pull start rope?

no set length on any recoil repair
old one will be stretched or broken

melt cord end for ease of fitting and no fraying through holes
and finishing knots

feed one end into recoil internal through outer and inner casing
then knot
set recoil spring into correct position and tension

cord is at least three times around recoil
leave excess cord out for pull handle and later adjustment

then cut .. melt end .. feed thought pull handle

then adjust as you test recoil off the motor

then fit to motor.. pull a few times

and final adjustment of cord length at the pull handle

How do i fix the pullchord pulley only rewinds part way.

If your referring to a lawnmower pull start cord it is possible two extra feet of chord are present to clip the t handle up on the bars for easier access while you keep the autokill bar ingageged look for a ring eye or metal loop on the right side of you handlebars. If the spring recoil in busted it take a little more doing to fix these and you should ask more specific question.

How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower

Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

Replace pull chord

Depends on your make and model.
Some are really easy, some impossible.
The easy ones go like this.
You remove the top of the motor, which is held on with a few screws. You will then have a bowl shaped piece, usually metal, which you will turn upside down, and see the cord-winder reel inside the top of it.
You will remove the cord winding reel, and wind a new cord onto it. However, the cord winding reel is spring loaded, and it takes knowledge and experience to do that.
The harder ones, I cannot begin to describe.
Be blessed.

My Craftsman lawn mower starter cord doesn't retract after mower starts.

I have had this situation before on a lawnmower. I didn't have a craftsman, but is probably the same issue. Basically, the spring that recoils the cord back in either broke or came unwound. When the mower is not running, the cogs on the pull chord keeps the cord from coming out. When the mower is running, the spring is not wound enough to hold the chord in and thus releases or doesn't hold it in.
Try pulling the pull chord assembly off and rewind the spring.

I broke the pull cord on my generator; how do I

you should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit

Recoil problem! I've just changed the start cord on my mower but now it won't recoil. The inner of the coil is attached the plastic wheel although the other(outer) end of the coil appears to be free. I'm...

You will probably find, that the spring inside, is not being stopped by the lug.
Usually, these do fail,..
Even when made from metal!
You will more than likely, have to replace the broken part.
Hope that helps you.

360 no picture

mine had the same problem for a while but found out that the audio video cable was broken in side the rubber seal. check the video cable by starting at the end that plugs into the 360. then pull it gently in about 5 inch sections all the way down. if this is your problem you will fell the rubber seal stretch because the chords in side are broken. it is possible the chords are broke inside the hard casing part that plugs in to the 360. your best bet is to buy a new one and keep the receipt in case that isn't your problem.
