SOURCE: replace pullcord on troy built mower

Replacing the rope is not difficult but tricky. I believe that your model has a fuel tank on top of starter cover, empty fuel and remove tank to expose starter cover. Remove the starter cover and place it on your workbench with the plastic rewind spool visible and remove the old rope noting how it was tied. The rope is sold in various sizes from # 3 to # 6.5. Most mowers use a #4.5, with length of about 6 to 7 feet. You may not need this much but more is better. Now practice inserting the rope thru the hole where it comes out of the cover into the hole where it ties on the spool. Once you can do this you are ready to wind. The spool /spring winds when you pull the rope, that why it recoils when you let go of the rope. With that in mind, turn (wind) the spool in the same direction that it turns when you pull the rope. It should be getting tighter as you turn. Keep winding in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope untill it will not go anymore. It should be very tight. Now unwind one complete turn and align the hole of the spool to the hole in the housing and hold it there while you insert the rope from outside hole into the spool and tie knot. After the knot is tied slowly let rope rewind into the spool untill it stops on its own. You are done. You should have plenty of extra rope left to extend out to the handlebar. Enjoy

SOURCE: i have a powerdevil petrol mower 3.5 i cannot

What is the model and type # on the ENGINE, not on the mower? Probably right above the spark plug, assuming it's a Briggs and Stratton.

SOURCE: 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

Cant get my mountfield lawn mower started, it is petrol and i have primed it by pressing the pump button as per the instructions on the mower. there doesnt seem to be any resistance when i pull the start...


make sure there is a spark plug in. that would be 1 reason why there is no resistance when you pull the cord. if there is a spark plug in then check to see if there is a clunking sound when you pull the cord if this is the case then the engine has a broken conecting rod..good luck

I am trying to replace the cord on my mower, but the cord wont spring back in when I attempt to start it. Please help


the spring below the cord 'spool' must be wound tight before new cord is attached.disconnect cord,wind spool in the direction cord would pull it when starting until it stops & hold it there[spring is wound] release it enough to align & attach cord.release spool & allow it to wind cord onto spool.replace cover.

Starting my petrol mower


depending on age of machine set the throttle to maximum revs,and pull the starter cord but newer models have a primer button located on carburettor which is locked just under air filter (black or red colour) push it three times( you should hear it inject fuel) and then pull starter cord,some of these engines have a pre-set throttle ,main concern is that if it has not been used for some time you will need to clean carburettor out,replace diaphragm and remember to use fresh fuel(not older than 90 days) this should cure your problem
