How do you get the last piece covering the rip cord spool off?

Ive got a Ex-cell, Quantum 6.0, Briggs pressure washer. I've taken all the parts on top of the engine off. But when I get to the last part covering the actual spool where the rip cord is, There is a some sort of a flat bolt or nail that is keeping it from coming off. How do you get that peice off, so I can replace the rip cord? I cant find any tool what so ever that can get this peice to come off.

Trimmer/Weed Eater String Replacement


"How do I remove the spool and restring my trimmer?"

The spool is ******* on. There should be a Half Sphere-like object (Spool Retainer) on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise, or clockwise, depending on whether you have a Left-hand or Right-hand Trimmer.

If it is a duel line trimmer then:


1. Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

2. Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

3. Wind clockwise onto spool,putting the line that is closest to the ground on first. Once you have wound this piece on, lock the last 4"-6" inches of line through one(1) of the 4 or 5 slits on spool.

4. Repeat process for second piece of line, putting it on the top side of the spool; locking the last few inches in the slot opposite the other locked in piece. (Remember, if you have a left-handed trimmer, the winding instructions will be just the opposite.)

5. Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

6. Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

7. Place Half-Sphere-like object back on, twisting it clock-wise to tighten.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer a little longer than 7ft.

Here is a short video that explains 3 different types of heads:

Hey Chuck
Not sure of the model washer you have but most Briggs tank covers only have 2 bolts on top holding the cover to the tank. If the isnt it can you be more specific with a model number?

Rope broke


Starter rope is sold at home centers like Lowes and Homedepot. It is important to buy the same thickness of rope so that an ample amount will fit into rewind spool(starter rope is sold by size from 3.5 to 6.5) . Remove the starter cover /fan cover if the starter is riveted to fan cover (or just remove the pull rewind if bolted on). With cover removed, notice how the rope enters thru bushing and ties onto spool. Visualize in which direction the spool turns when you pull the rope. This is the direction that you will be winding the spool. Fish out the old rope and wind the spool in the direction mentioned above. The spool will get tighter as you wind. When the spool will not wind another turn, back-off one turn and align hole in spool to bushing on cover. Insert rope thru bushing into hole and tie knot (any knot that will not obstruct motor parts). At this point allow the rewind to take-in the rope to stop at handle. Test your work. The rope will break if you try to start the washer under load. Press trigger on wand to release pressure. Also the rope is stressed when the operator has a very long strong arm and pulls out the rope to bottom out at the knot. Good luck with your repair

Pullstart cord replacement


If this is like most simple mowers (using briggs & stratton engines and some others) the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You may have to first remove a plastic shroud (which might include the gas tank - which should have a shut-off valve). Then you should be able to remove the metal cover that includes the recoil starter. When you get that off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 3 to 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

Gas powered pressure washer wont start


On pressure washers the more you pull the cord the more pressure builds up making it difficult to pull and start. I hold the trigger down as i pull this keeps the pressure down. If this is not the problem then take a look at the Spark plug, Air Filter if all is fine then check the fuel. How often do you use it, fuel loses its Octane when sitting around. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer is helpful in anyways. Good Luck and have a Great Day.
