Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
I have an old Scotts 2 in 1 mulch side discgharge power propelled mower with a 6.5 hp Intake Edge OHV briggs and staratton engine. The starter rope broke.
I took the plastic cover off the top and then there was a metal piece over where the rope should go. There are 3 or 4 bolts that have a round place, not a phillips or flat head screw. How do you get those off or what do I need to do next to replace the starter rope?
Could you give me step by step instructions on how to replace the starter rope. I would greatly appreciate it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Most times the briggs engines start hard when hot because the exhaust valve is leaking at the seat.If you hear a hissing noise from the muffler when you are trying to start instead of a good crisp pop it that is a good indication the valve is burnt.To be sure you would have to have a compression or leak down test done on engine.A valve job is not an easy job if you don't have the right tools.
