the rope probably has broken at some point and they did not relode spring enough take the take the spring housing off remove the rope relode spring stick a screwdriver in it to keep it there put rope back on pull screwdriver out put it back on
you have to do with the sring through the pull start hole wind it clock wise it will attach to the pully and wind it up if you have a spring cartige you have to wind by hand and put it in the catrige wind in the direction of spring
I hope you have strong hands. Start by holding the inside end of the spring in one hand, then carefully wind the spring back into a circle tightly until you get to the other end. The finished diameter of the spring must be a little smaller than the area it goes back into. Put it back in, then replace the pulley like it was when you disassembled it.
I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight".
Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in.
They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord.
Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle.
Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord.
This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.
Yes you can put the spring back in but it takes patience. Wind the spring inside the pully first. Then install the cord on the outside of the pully. Make sure you wind both in correct direction. You probably should replace the cord while you have it apart. The parts would be listed by the engine brand and model number, not by MTD. Probably a Briggs & Stratton engine? You can go to their web site :www.briggsandstratton.com to get part numbers. Or you can try a place like www.jackssmallengines.com
Put the bike on a stand supporting the bottom of the frame. Remove the seat and sidepanels. Loosen the clamp on the carb to airbox boot at the rear of the carb. Loosen the muffler clamp, remove muffler mounting bolts and pull muffler. Remove the 4 rear subframe bolts. Remove the rear subframe (leave airbox and rear fender assembled in it). You are now staring at a completely exposed rear shock. Remove the shock mount bolts and remove the shock. Measure the spring adjusted length for a future starting point when the spring is put back on. Loosen both spring pre-load adjuster spanner nuts all the way. Helps if you clean the dirt off the threads and use a little lube. Pull the spring towards the spanner nuts and remove the clip ring at the opposite end spring holder. that's it.
you have to replace the coil spring it's not to hard to do. take the top off and buy new coil spring and winf it in revers to get the rope pulled all the way in then put back on mower not letting go of coil spring and allowing it to catch on the crank shaft dogs.
You have to put the spring back into a circle thing how it was when you would have seen it before, then put your spring in put on the plastic bit with the pull chord in it and bolt it up, it should all work out well if you take time to do it! :)
