Wedge a screw driver between cover and engine cover. Just enough to put a little press. It should come out when you unscrew it.

How do I remove starter from 14 H.P. B&S vertical shaft engine?


Normally it hooks up to the engine at the top side where the flywheel is located..at the top you will find two small bolts..and at the bottom one or two wires..just disconnect the battery cables so no sparks or shorts when removing from the starter..then disconnect the starter wires set aside and then remove the two bolts..it should drop right out...note.. In some cases you may need to remove the engine shroud on the top to get at the bolts...not a hard job..if more the one wire...mark them or draw a diagram as where they were attached..good luck

PULL ROPE INSTALLATION ON ROTARY LAWNMOWERS,,B&S,TECUMSEH ,HONDA ENGINES


Hello sir,This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine,remove any plastic outer cover, empty and remove fuel tank lay on the deck,tecumseh engines remove the screw on the oil filler cap,remove the four bolts holding housing on. to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again.or you will need a new rope,you can get new rope at most home improvement centers that sell mowers, comes with handle, You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow. hope this helps,don't forget the 4 thumbs up,any comment welcome,thank you. Hello sir, Pull rope installation, place mower on a good work surface, empty the fuel,remove the fuel tank,lay tank on mower deck,remove any plastic outer cover,now remove engine metal cover housing,there should be four bolts or screws in housing,remove old rope,get new rope from your local repair shop you will need 5 ft of # 5 rope,ok remove pull handle from old rope,burn both ends of new rope to prevent fraying,lets install new rope,place housing in your left hand holding against your body turn pulley right to left until stops,back off until holes line up,you might want to put a screwdriver through the cover grates to keep pulley from turning,tie a knot in one end of rope,put other end through holes from the inside out through pulley,pull until tight,now let rope wind up slowly until stops mark where rope stops,pull rope out about half way clamp rope or tie so rope don't go back in,cut rope at mark put handle on untie rope let rope retract.you should be good to go,hope this helps,DON'T FORGET THE 4 THUMBS UP,,any comments welcome.thank you.

My Craftsman mower starter cord has wound back to the mower...is there a way to free it myself or is this a "shop" fix?


You should be able to do this yourself. You will need the following: A phillips head screwdriver, Socket set in SAE, and a short 3" extension for your socket driver, replacement rope, and the handle. First, take off the plastic cover for the top of the engine. You will use the phillips head screwdriver. Take the cover off and set it aside with the two screws inside of it or in a safe location. Second, you will use a 5/16 socket to loosen the screws that hold the fuel tank in place on the flywheel housing, once it is loose pull it back and out of the way. CAUTION: the fuel line may come off and you may leak some fuel out of the fuel tank. Third, you will need to take the 5/16 socket and remove the screw that holds the dipstick to the flywheel housing. Then take the dipstick up and turn it around so it is 180 degrees from where it was attached to the flywheel housing. Fourth, Take the bolts out that hold the flywheel housing to the engine. You will use a 3/8 socket on these bolts. There are two bolts on the front of the engine (close to the spark plug) and two at the back of the engine (these were covered by the fuel tank). Once the bolts are out of the engine, you should be able to pull up on the flywheel housing and it will come off of the engine. Fifth, remove any of the old cord from the rewind pulley. Put one end of the NEW rope through the eyelet on the top of the rewind starter and push it through the hole in the pulley. Tie a secure knot to make sure the new rope does not get pulled free of the rewind starter. Depending on the type of plastic cover on top of the flywheel housing you may need to put the rope through the plastic cover before attaching the handle to the other end of the rope. Attach the handle to the other end of the rope with another secure knot. The video will describe how to put tension on the rope. Assembly is a reverse of the dis assembly.

How do i remove starter 2000 night train Thanks!


step one disconnect the battery starting with the negative using a 10mm wrench
with a 5/8 socket remove the engine oil drain plug and drain the oil
remove the battery
with a 3/8 socket remove the fuse box right behind the battery
on the back side of the oil tank between the rear wheel splash guard and the oil tank is two 9/16 bolt heads, remove them with an open end and be sure not to lose them there are also two more in front of the oil tank remove them as well.
unclip the oil lines at the engine by squeezing the two blck clips with your fingers at the big chrome bolts.
remove the oil tank making sure there is nothing else in its way
5/8 socket drain the primary oil
with a torx 27 (t27) remove either the chain inspection cover or derby cover
with a 3/16 Allen wench (preferably a 3/8 socket style) reoveslowly and by hand all of the outer primary screws. be sure to have a peice of cardboard to note where they came out of.
remove the gasket, and if you had a paper gasket in there be sure to remove all of it remaining none
to the top right of the clutch you will see a small bolt head with a small hammer and a flat head screw driver tap back the bolt lock tab then use an (i believe 8mm socket to remove this screw) its a long one at that about 4-5 inches long.
then pull out the pinion gear
now go to the other side of the bike using a 1/4 allen socket on a long extension remove both allen bolts one on the upper left of the starter and one on the lower right both go into the back side of the inner primary cover
remove the "50 terminal" (the green wire with the white connector on the outter most right top of the starter and with a 7/16 wrench remove the battery positive from the starter
pull starter out
perform these steps in reverse to install starter
depending on your exhaust you may need to remove that also

Need to replace starter cord on Tecumseh LV195EA engine for walk behind lawn mower


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!

Replacing starter rope on Briggs engine 133702, type 017002


On some models of mowers...depending on the maker of the mower, the rewind housing is bolted onto the engine cover with 3 screws. On the rest they are riveted and the only way to get to the crank rope is from underneath the housing...but, they do make refits for the mowers where you can replace the rivets with bolts

Replace pullcord on troy built mower


Replacing the rope is not difficult but tricky. I believe that your model has a fuel tank on top of starter cover, empty fuel and remove tank to expose starter cover. Remove the starter cover and place it on your workbench with the plastic rewind spool visible and remove the old rope noting how it was tied. The rope is sold in various sizes from # 3 to # 6.5. Most mowers use a #4.5, with length of about 6 to 7 feet. You may not need this much but more is better. Now practice inserting the rope thru the hole where it comes out of the cover into the hole where it ties on the spool. Once you can do this you are ready to wind. The spool /spring winds when you pull the rope, that why it recoils when you let go of the rope. With that in mind, turn (wind) the spool in the same direction that it turns when you pull the rope. It should be getting tighter as you turn. Keep winding in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope untill it will not go anymore. It should be very tight. Now unwind one complete turn and align the hole of the spool to the hole in the housing and hold it there while you insert the rope from outside hole into the spool and tie knot. After the knot is tied slowly let rope rewind into the spool untill it stops on its own. You are done. You should have plenty of extra rope left to extend out to the handlebar. Enjoy
