Gx160 pull cord rope broken

1. Buy a starter repair kit or get five feet of nylon rope similar to what was in the starter from a Lowe's, The Home Depot or the like.
2. Remove the three bolts holding the starter on the motor and remove any remaining rope on the pulley.
3. Line the hole in the pulley up with the hole in the starter housing and thread the rope through both.
4. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope and cut the tail off so it won't interfere with motor but not so short the knot comes undone.
5. Thread the other end of the rope through the t-handle and tie a knot in the very end so the handle won't come off and the rope won't be pulled into the starter during the next part.
6. Pull the rope up between the starter housing and pulley and get the rope into the notch in the pulley. Turn the pulley clockwise with the rope in the notch to put tention on the spring. Give it four turns.
7. When the notch gets back to the hole in the housing, hold the pulley and pull the rope back into place from outside the housing.
8. Let the pulley turn slowly so it retracts the rope.
9. You want four windings on the pulley and the t-handle to be held against the housing. If you don't get four windings on the pulley, give the pulley another tension turn (Step 6). If you have four windings and the t-handle isn't held against the housing or you get more that four windings, shorten the rope at the t-handle.
10. Reinstall the starter and you will be back in business.

While trying to start the saw the compression is so great that it is near imposible to pull the start rope won't spin fast enough to start ... new plug ,,,, new gas start ,,,tired arm...

If the carb is flooding it will fill the cylinder with fuel, this will cause a hydralic lock, making it near impossible to crank the engine, remove the spark pluf, turn the ignition off, crank the engine, if fuel pours out of the plug hole then it is well flooded, you will need to get a pressure test on the carb to check the needle is not leaking, this will be the quickest way to check the carb.

Washing a Climbing Rope

Step1 Fill a large bucket with warm water. Step2 Add rope wash. (You can purchase it at a BlueWater retailer; follow the link in Resources for a list of locations. If you don't want to travel to the nearest store, you can request that they ship you some.) The instructions on the rope wash package will tell you how much to add, based on how many gallons of water you have in your bucket. Step3 Add your rope to the wash. Step4 Start working the dirt off the rope with your hands. Swish the rope around and flip it over a few times. Spend about 15 minutes doing this. Step5 Allow your rope to sit in the wash for 2 hours. Step6 Squeeze the water out of your rope as you slowly take it out of the bucket. Step7 Lay out your rope in the sunshine to dry.

Sound like you have the typical "frozen" crank bolt. To remove it, it's counter clockwise. What you do to remove it when it's frozen, pull #1 spark plug out, rotate crank so #1 piston is at the bottom of the cylinder. Now take a long piece of rope and stuff it into the spark plug hole as much as you can. Use a screwdriver to keep stuffing rope into cylinder. The rope is now a piston stop. When turning the crank counter clockwise to remove it, you'll feel the crank stop. Now you can crank on the wrench to break the bolt loose. I use a long 1/2" drive breaker bar, long 1/2" extension, and a jack stand to support the extension and with a jack handle over the breaker bar, pull hard and you'll hear a loud pop. At this point the bolt will break loose for you. Don't worry you will not break the crank bolt doing this. After the bolt breaks loose, rotate the crank clockwise again just enough the remove the rope.

Timing belt installation

Pull a spark plug out. Make it one that is easy to get to, it doesn't matter which one. After removing the spark plug, move the crank so the piston is at the bottom of the bore. Get a long piece of rope and stuff as much of it into the hole as you can get into it. I use a long screwdriver to stuff the rope in the plug hole. This rope now becomes a piston stop. Now you can get a socket on the crank bolt and remove it. You may need a long breaker bar and a floor jack handle to pop the bolt loose. After you break the bolt loose, turn the crank bolt clockwise again a little to remove the rope. Now the crank bolt can be removed and the balancer can be removed.
