What I do is the following:

Remove the old rope ( what is left of it)

Wind the starter rope pulley about 8 or 9 complete revolutions after I am confident that the spring has engaged the starter pulley

Hold the pulley in place ( align the rope hole in the pulley with hole in the starter housing

Insert the rope and tie a knot, pull the rope back tight against the pulley

Pull the rope all the way out and hold slight tension on the rope and release the tension on the pulley but still holding the starter housing

Starter spring should pull rope into housing... good luck

How do I replace a pull cord for pm 605 mcculloch chainsaw?


First remove the pull starter housing.
The next part is tricky. You'll have to release and unwind the spring that rewinds the pull starter cord. Remember how you do this because after replacing the cord, you'll have to rewind the cord and spring before inserting it back in the housing.
re-attach the pull cord housing to the chain saw.
Hope this helps.

Starter cord has jammed


You will have to remove the starter rewind mechanism and rewind the cord around the pulley, then pre- load a certain amount of tension on the rewind spring.

The pull cord is stuck, can't be pulled to start


This solution applies to the Sears model 358.797200, which also appears to the FL1500LE marketed under the Craftsman name, and may apply to other, similar, blowers. Go to the searspartsdirect.com site and enter the Sears model number. This blower may be prone to develop binding in the pull cord rewind spring compartment. (The binding may easily be misdiagnosed as a seized up engine.) The binding can be fixed by adding washers to increase the spacing. Open the rewind starter page on the sears site for an exploded view. I found that by placing 2 washers on each of the 5 screws (no. 7 on the diagram) which attach impeller housing (12) to the motor, I increased the spacing enough so the pull cord operated and retracted normally. The washers must go between the impeller housing and the motor. To complete the repair, you need to add a washer between the spacing flywheel (14) and the impeller(15) to keep the impeller from binding against the housing. The gasoline tank screws won't line up as well with the holes, but will fit. Install all 3 screws for the at first loosely, then tighten them down.

Rob poulan leaf blower how to rewind pull string


I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled. HTH
