How to replace starter rope on 1993 polaris indy 500

Good luck! This model usually requires the muffler being removed,the right side of the engine disassembled.... A hint! do not remove the recoil spring unless it is broke. Turn the rope pulley clockwise about 6 times alaign the rope hole in the pulley and the starter housing , push the rope through, it helps to melt the rope ends.after the new knot is tied and pulled tight,gently release the pulley.

Need to obtain a new belt and pull rope for my Tiller

you can get a pull rope at wal-mart.measure the belt and any parts store or place that sells lawnmower belts should have one.if the rope broke close to the end knot just pull the end knot with some needle nose pliers.once you have all the old rope out lay the old rope pieces on the ground and cut the new rope to match it as far as length.turn the pulley that the pull rope goes in six turns counerclockwise.then turn the slot the knot was in to the hole the pullrope goes thru and fish it thru then pull it up and out with apaiar of needlnose have someone hold the pulley until you tie a small knot in the end of the pullrope the hold the pullrope and let it pull it might have to cut some off at the handle if its still too do this pull some rope out and tie a quick knot so the rope can't slip back if you let it go.
