The pins are spring loaded if they fell out then the pully is bad when you get the pully starter you get rope and new pins pay attention how you take it out you have to put it back the same way you took it out

SOURCE: Need to replace starter cord on Tecumseh LV195EA

This is an easy one. You need a #2 phillips screwdriver, a 1/4" nutdriver or socket, a 5/16" nutdriver or socket, 84" of #4.5 braided nylon rope, scissors and a lighter or flame of some kind.

1. With the #2 phillips screwdriver, remove the 2 screws that hold the green plastic cover to the top of the engine. This is just a decorative cover.
2. With the 5/16 nutdriver, remove the 3 screws in the top of the fuel tank. Lift the tank straight up about 3/4" and then just lay it back on the rear of the mower deck.
3. The round black object on top of the motor is the starter houseing. You will find it being held on with 2 screws from the side. The 1/4 nutdriver should fit these. Remove them, and note the position of each screw and the position of the starter top. It might help to put some colored tape on the starter top and on the upper engine shroud to make sure you put it back in the same position. The starter top will come off by lifting it straight up.
4. Remove what is left of the old rope.
5. carefully wind the inner pulley (the same direction the rope will pull it) until it is tight. Then let it rotate back a little until the rope hole in the pulley lines up with the rope hole in the starter top. Use your screwdriver to hold these in place by putting it through the pulley and starter top vent holes.
6. Measure your rope out to 84inches and then cut it. Take the lighter and melt the ends of the rope to keep them from ravelling. When you melt the ends, take a paper towel or a rag and wipe the ends to form a point. This will make reinstall easier.
7. Push the rope throught the eyelet of the starter top and through the hole in the pulley and tie a figure 8 knot on the inside of the pulley. Tie the starter handle on the other end. but do not tighten this knot, you may have to untie it to lace it back through to where it goes.
8.. Hold tension on the rope and remove the screwdriver. The rope should retract into the starter top.
9.Reinstall everything in reverse order.

Good luck!

2010 ford edge starts intermittently. Replaced battery - doesn't try to crank - just nothing.

Problem with 1998 Honda Accord 2010 ford edge starts intermittently. Replaced no crank is
1: a weak battery (try different good one, or jumper cable it)
2: bad cables or conn. from battery to starter.
3: bad starter.
4: bad key line (alarm cut, PRNDL switch open, bad ignition switch.
Five minutes with any voltmeter finds this easy.
or or hot wire the starter solenoid, to cut the problem in 1/2
this proves problem is in starter or battery
or in Key line, in 5 min flat, (a 100 year old test )

there are very simple tests for each of the 4. ask.

Ok, make sure your battery is installed and connected correctly. The connections should be clean and tight. Now, look at the end of your starter. You'll see a five sided plate with a tower like thing in the middle on the end of your starter. Just above it is a single wire that plugs onto the starter. Unplug this wire and insert a test light into the wire. Turn your ignition on and press the start button. If the light lights up, your starter is bad. If it doesn, you've got another problem.

If the light does not light up, you'll have to find the starter relay. Harley moves these things around all the time so you never know where to look for one from year to year. I'd start under the seat and then move to the side panels if necessary. The relay is a typical one inch cube made of plastic. When you find it, turn on the igntion and press the start button while holding the relay. It should click. If if doesn't, it's probably bad and even if it does, it's probably bad. I'd replace the part as it's not all that expensive.

If you suspect the starter, go back and remove the three screws that hold the five sided plate onto the starter. Behind the plate you see a plunger with a spring on it. NOW, MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS OUT OF GEAR. Using a large screwdriver, push the plunger into the starter as far as it will go. The starter should engage and turn the engine. If not, you may have to replace the large copper contacts in the solenoid.

I hope this helps you find and fix your problem

does it start fine cold and have problems starting after it's been running? gm's have the starter solenoid on the starter. if you have headers you will have problems overheating the solenoid and consequently have starting problems. as for the clutch, it has a switch on it so you can't inadvertantly start it in gear. if that switch is bad, it won't even click. you need a solenoid or starter. just cause it was new, doesn't mean it was good. see if your starter has a warranty and replace it. it should have a heat shield, see if it's there. if not, get one.

Electric starter won't work on snowblower, replaced it once

If this is a briggs & Stratton engine no the starters are easy to get and replace usually just 2 bolts hold them in. Depending on how long ago you replaced the last one I would check out the system for problems before I installed a new one as starters usually last for yrs. Things that would ruin a starter are excessive heat or power staying on the starter after startup as this would cause excessive wear. Hope This Helps Don

You need to buy a Starter Drive Kit. If you starter has a flat piece on top held on by a retaining ring, it's part # 696541. If you have the older type starter with roll pin holding the drive on, you need part # 696540. You probably have the first one. To install the retaining ring, use a 3/8 socket to tap it into the groove. Dwain

Starter turns over but wont run sometimes (once every 2 months)

More than likely the starter contacts or solenoid are going bad which explains the intermittent staring problem. You can take out the starter and see if you can replace the contacts or replace the starter entirely. Since this is a starter problem a diagnostic scanner will not be able to pin point the problem. I would recommend replacing the starter altogether. A rebuilt or used one can cost appr. $300 and another $400 labor unless you can DIY.

Starter removal

As a last resort I removed the exhaust manifold from the right passenger side of the engine to allow enough room to work, at that point it was easy to remove. 27 hours total time. My advice if you own one of these is to get rid of it before you need to replace the starter or take it to a Ford dealer ship and let them deal with it. This car only has 78,000 actual miles on it, and tomorrow it get traded off and not another(FORD) EVER!!!!
