SOURCE: how do I repair the pull cord on a masport 600

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

- Remove the recoil assy. Depending on engine model you may hae to remove the air shroud with the recoil.
- Remove the broken rope assy from the spool by lifting the knot out of the hole and cut off the knot.
- Pull the remainder of the old rope out of the recoil spool
- Take the remainder of rope out of the pull handle

On the new rop burn the ends with a match. With wet fingers pinch the ends of the rope while hot/melted until it is the same size as the rope. Form a point on the ends
- Install the new rope in the handle by threading it into the handle and tie ONE small knot on the end of the trheaded through rope.
- Pull very hard on the rope until the new knot seats in the handle. Assemble handle.
- PREWIND the spool in the recoil until it stops winding. I.e. max out spring tension but do not over wind it or you will break the spring. Make sure NOT to wind it in the wrong direction or you will break the spring
- Back off the spool until the knot hole is aligned with the rope guide bushing on the outside of the recoil.
- Either use a C-clamp or a 2nd person to hold the pre-wound spool in place.
-Thread the new rope through the outer rope guide and into then through the knot hole in the spool.
-Tie ONE small knot in the rope and pull it HARD back into the knot hole until the knot seats in the knot hole.
-Release C-clamp or have 2nd person let go of the spool. The rope will rewind into the recoil assy.
-reinstall recoil/air shroud on the engine.

That should get you mowing again.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: Masport Lawnmower won't start

you likley will need a new air filter and a carb cleaning. when mowers are turned on their side. oil will seep past the piston and if your intake valve was open it can pass thru into the carb and also spoil your air filter. I am assumeing you have a paper air filter. start by taking off your air filter. then you should also pull the spark plug, place a rag covering the hole. then pull the cord a couple times. chances are that you will blow the oil out of the cylinder.

SOURCE: Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

SOURCE: What would cause no spark? the mower is a masport

Your spark plug wire may be damaged, or your magneto may be too weak to generate a spark. You also have a kill switch wired to your magneto, and a condensor. I would start by cleaning the contacts of the magneto and then check the gap between the magneto and the flywheel. The gap between the flywheel and magneto should be .010". I would start by checking the kill switch wire for damage. If any damage is suspected, replace the kill switch. Next, I would have the magneto tested or replaced. Also, check all your ground wires for damage, or loose contacts.

When you are checking for a spark, you should have the spark plug installed in the spark plug wire as normal, but not installed in the engine. The spark plug base should be grounded to the engine while trying to start and checking for a spark. If there is a weak spark, this is probably due to a worn magneto.

G'day, I have just used my masport 1000 presidential for the second time since purchase and it is not cutting the grass. It was cutting well initially until I emptied the catcher and made a height...


I have just found out that your mower has the Unique Quickcut blade system, with swingback feature to protect the crankshaft from damage should the
mower strike a solid object. If you can, you should check this and make sure this feature is operating correctly. It sounds like it has maybe malfunctioned, thus the cutting problem.

Yes sir assuming that all parts are origional. 9 times out of 10 its a rusted up idler arm. Remove the rust and grease up the idler arm bushings. Lubricate all other pivot points with machine oil or wd40.
