Sounds like you probably have a large piece jamming the impeller. Look for an inspection cover somewhere on the outside of it. remove the cover and try to turn the impeller backward with a pry bar of some sort to free it up. DISCONNECT THE SPARK PLUG BEFORE BEGINNING!!

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?

How do I put a new pull rope on my 5hp MTD Chipper?


pull the starter cover pull rope out to length lock the housing the rope is in, in place with a tool pull out rope. reinsert new rope into retaining hoe tie a not and cut off excess rope. put ropr through handle hole reattach handle and remove tool you used to hold the rope housing. This is if your spring and starter assembly are ok. Or you could stop being a cheap and let a shop do it for 5 minutes labor.

Pull rope will not pull


Remove recoil rope assembly. Ensure rope is properly wrapped around. While recoil assembly is removed use ratchet and socket to rotate fly wheel, remove spark plug first, observe compression and exhaust at spark plug whole during rotation of fly wheel. Clean or replace spark plug. Ensure oil is full. 30w. Set spark plug gap. Always use Stabile in gas. Replace coil rope is required. Purchased by the foot at any mower repair store.

Pull starting rope Broke


Most recoil assemblies are easy to fix...but not in an obvious way. Remove the recoil asembly from the small engine housing/flywheel cover. Usually three bolts hold it on. 10mm on Honda's. Pull the remaining rope thru the exit hole if possible. Otherwise, fish remaining rope thru the hole by turning rope winding pulley as if pulling handle was still attached, lining up any remaining rope end and pushing thru the exit hole in outer recoil housing or backing it out the inside pulley. Continue to wind rope winding pulley in a counterclockwise ( facing pulley...not outer metal) untill it will not tighten any further. Remove any more old rope. Line up pulley hole and exit hole. Melt end of new rope into a tapered shape..if not supplied that way. the pulley can be held in place by inserting a screwdriver thru the both the pulley and the metal housing spokes. Thread the new rope thru the exit and pulley hole. Tie the rope end sticking thru and draw tight. Cut 6 feet of rope...if not using a presized pull. Release screwdriver from spokes and rope should draw up onto the pulley. Tie off opposite end of the rope to keep from losing that end into the exit hole. put the handle on the rope and tie a knot in the end to retain the handle. Untie the tie-off and allow the handle to fully retract. If handle does not fully retract you may shorten the rope so that it does...as long as you have plenty of pull lenght

It sounds like the pump is seized. Make sure any pressure has been released by pulling the trigger on the gun. Sometimes this will allow you pull the cord. If the pump is seized, a new pump would be in order.

How do you rotate shredder blades on duerr m/n 678?


Interesting question --
I just picked up one of these over the weekend, and was able to get the flywheel off with minimal excitement. After removing the center bolt from the flywheel, I used a hammer to "encourage" the flywheel off the keyed shaft from the back-- through branch feed hole in the housing. It took quite some time, and I rotated the flywheel as I did it to keep it from binding up, but it eventually came off.

As an aside, would you let me know if you've found any source for parts or documentation? I'm going to attempt some repairs on the flywheel and chipper blades, but may end up wanting to replace them.

Pull-start rope won't pull


This has happened several times for me and is usually caused by a peice of word jamed in the input hopper and half cut by the blades. Always make sure there is no wood in the input chute before stopping motor. remove the collector bag and use a long pry bar to reverse the flywheel. if this moves backwards you may then be able to remove the peice of wood jammed in the blades thru the input chute. Long Skinny arms is required to reach down the chute. Use a Flashlight to see if this is your problem.
