Hard pulling starter rope


You say Pull rope mechanism is ok, How do you know that? Ive's seen them get the rope a little off and gets caught being wedged into a small clearance. Is the rope wearing? I bet if you take it apart put a new nylon rope and some wd-40 in rubbing surfaces including the ratchet area it will be good as new. Crank bearing has to get really bad to effect pull. How is the spark?

Troy built mower honda 160 engine oil leak around governer shaft. no oil seal but shows one on parts breakdown. Can not find part number for shown seal.


Drain oil from mower until proper level. Remove spark plug and pull starter rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in cylinder pull rope several times to clean out. Replace fouled plug with new spark plug. Remove air cleaner, ensure no oil present, replace filter as needed. Clean air filter box with carb cleaner. Install new air filter reattach filter cover. Prime engine, pull starter rope 1/2 way 4 times to help prime, then pull starter rope fully up to 10 times to start.

I have a troy built pressure washer model number 020337 with a briggs and stratton engine. It worked fine for the first two or three years I had it and now it won't turn over to crank. I changed the oil,...


O.K. I take it you are saying it won't fire, is this correct or are you saying that when you pull the rope it does'nt move ? make sure your spark plug is sparking, pull plug and hook to the plug wire and ground the side to the head and pull over eng with switch on should have blue spark probably will take 2 people and make sure you are holding the pluf wire while holding it against the enj, cause if you touch the metal part of plug you will get one heck of a poke! So if that is good pull your fuel line off carb and make sure you have fuel coming out of it, If so pull the float bowl off carefullyy and clean out your bowl and hook up fuel line and see if needle and seat are working properly. float down fuel running float up fuel shut off. also make sure you clean any jets too
I hope I got You on the right track!

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

Pull mower rope on troy built self propelled mower and it jerks it back out of your hand,hard,,and will not start


Hi,
This sounds like the engine is out of time.
Usually this happens when the blades hit something hard and shears a small aluminum"key" between the crank shaft and the flywheel.
This is reparable. The little key is less than a buck. A person needs some skills to remove the flywheel to replace the "key".

New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start


When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

Has it always done this or has it developed?
Some saws have a decompression button to make it easier to pull over.
