    Replacing it is no problem, but what is the problem is I've only had it 10 days and used it twice

SOURCE: replacing pull cord on troy built mower model # 8654r 4hp

Remove the housing covering the clutch. The cord spool can then be accessed. Replace the cord. Be careful that you maintain the proper spool spring tension. Check operation before reassembling

SOURCE: bought a new part to hold the starter cord for my tiller

I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope through from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain

Troy bilt tb 240 mower revved out of control about 30 seconds, stopped running then immediately seized up


sounds like the spring on the governor or carb came off and went wide open. that will lock an engine up quick. pull the spark plug and see if you can turn the engine over. if you have to take off the shroud that covers the flywheel, pull rope assembly. try to turn the engine over by hand. squirt some oil in the spark plug hole. you may be able to free it . the starter cord should be free off the engine. maybe it just got jammed.

I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.


Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

If the rope recoils back into the starter, at least the starter spring is not broken...but...if you can break the unit down to where you can get a good look at it, you may find that the ratchets on the starter pulley are not engaging with the pawls on the flywheel...The pawls are spring loaded so they engage and then drop out of the way when starting, See if you can break the machine down to that point and post back,

I have a Troy Bilt 675 lawn mower, won't start.


is the gas in the tank old? if so, try to drain it and put fresh gas in. Pull the spark plug to make sure it is not fouled and replace it or put in a new one. Check to make sure that you do not have the mixture or choke set to run too rich or too lean. If you are at an altitude above 2,500 feet you need to run more lean to compensate.

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.

I have the same model from Troy-Bilt. I have only had it about 4 or 5 months. Mine has started using a LOT of oil. I noticed a significant increase in temperature compared to my old Husqvarna 2 cycle. Mine does not completely stall, but it does start to sputter when it gets hot. I am going to take mine back to Lowe's where I bought it. So far I am VERY unhappy with the TBP6040.

I cant start it due to the pull cord not coming out further than 5-6 inches??


Sounds like the cord may be wrapped outside of the recoil pulley and may be spinning the motor backwards. The cord can backlash especially if the trimmer kicked a bit during starting.

Troy-bilt 4-cycle Garden Cultivator TB144 pull cord not rewinding.


This type of pull starter design is very poor and fails often. Cheap parts and cheap design leads to poor performance and yet Troybuilt still doesn't give free parts or an upgraded design.
