SOURCE: starter rope on Troybilt TB575SS

try removing the starter housing, inside will be a large white or black wheel, visually inspect to make sure the componets are not damaged and that nothing jamming it. try using a lithium spray grease to lubricate the componets. if it still doesn't work the inner coil is probably damaged or came off track. it is very difficult to fix or replace this coil. i suggest taking to your nearest service center but if you would like to try it yourself, let me know and i will give you further instructions.

SOURCE: engine manual for troybilt tb 144 mini tiller

Below are a few links that might prove useful. The first two are operators, and shop manuals for the 144. I briefly looked through them and they have engine related info. The third is just an exploded view of the engine.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: broken pull starter rope

remove pulley that rope goes on, wind it with new rope, wrap it till it is full, then feed rope thru hole in housing, put pulley back in place, put rope thru pull handle, pull thru till you feel spring catch tie a knot and that should do it......be careful when removing pulley not to dislodge recoil spring

The pawl ratchets seem to be sticking for some reason, try some WD40 inside the recoil. Stephen.

SOURCE: i nee to replace starter rope on tiller...

O really, u have a easy task here. Remove that pull rope coil housing and get it on the bench. Don't take any thing apart from here, that coil spring inside is a whole different religion test. Cut the knot and remove the old rope if it already hasn't broke, but get the old rope in the trash. Mark the rope hole some how in the coil housing against the hole in the housing where the rope comes in from the outside to get a line back through it all. Use braided nylon the same size as the old rope. Twist the coil back up enough to take up all of the new rope and still have some tension, line up your marks and clamp with c-clamp or vise grips to hold your coil tension. Tie your new rope to the handle and thread the other end from the outside through the holes till u see the end of the rope in the knot hole in your coil. grab with some needle nose, pull r up through and tie your knot. Make sure with a tug she's going to hold and release the clamp. Your back in business pal.
Never give in to the repair shop buzzards. ballping

How do I remove the starter assembly from an ez-hoe mini tiller? The rope doesn't go in all of the way.


most recoil system are bolted /screwed to the air couling at the end of the motor flywheel
undo those bolts /screws and lift the assembly clear of the motor
as it is fiddly to adjust
take it to a mower shop and have it fixed

The starter rope won't move on the mini tiller when I try to pull it


The starter housing is a lousy design; ours also failed just out of warranty and after dis-assembly, I still could not free it.

The part number for the complete housing is:

753-05769

Direct link:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/753-05769

I see the price is up a few dollars but I bought two after seeing the nature of the problem so have a spare in the shed.

We had no problems with the replacement so there may have been some change in the design.
Swapping the head does require some attention but don't lose patience, you can do it.


A add-on comment; The design or orientation of the blades allows a ridge to form in the center but pulling to the side (blades are then diagonal) prevents this from being a problem.

I have a troybilt tb-144 4 stroke mini tiller. The pull cord, pulls and retracts as it should, but is not engaging the engine when pulled...


remove the top cover. look inside while pulling rope briskly, you should see two dogs fly out and retract when the cord reaches its end. if not, check for dirt in the system and clean out. if no dogs, you will have to remove the system from the housing, be careful of the spring. check for any broken drive parts. also check flywheel cup for damage where the dogs come into contact with it.
