SOURCE: How do I replace the pull rope on a Talon Eagle

This can be very tricky.

You have to turn the assembly clockwise to put tension on the spring and hold it in this position while you attach the new rope. Then release the tension and let the spring release pull the rope back into the assembly.

DO NOT let the spring get out of the cavity in which it fits. Getting these things back where they belong can be a real headache.

SOURCE: My rope wont recoil on my Bolen BL 160 I have

the round rotating part with the nose is the clutch drum, it has a small torx screw down inside the center retaining it to the crankshaft, remove this screw, block the cylinder and remove the clutch plates. remove the engine from the housing and turn it around to access the spool and a metal plate that has a few screws holding it in. there is a push nut that looks like a serrated ring holding the spool on the housing, sometimes it can be carefully removed but usually it fails and has to be replaced, it presses back into place upon reassembly. Do not remove this ring if you are not replacing the spring or pulley!!! Simply install your new rope and using the spokes on the pulley gather some slack in the rope and wind up the pulley about 5 turns in the direction it rotates as if you were pulling the rope, while holding the tension on the pulley, extend the rope fully and carefully release the pulley while holding the tension with the rope by its handle it should retract normally

SOURCE: how to put recoil spring

The recoil housing is held on by four screws around the housing on the corners, the pulley is held to the housing by one screw, all tension needs to relieved from the spring before removing the pulley. you can either cut the rope if you are replacing it, or you can pull some of the rope out, lining up the notch in the pulley with the outlet hole, catch the pulley and hold it from rewinding, and using the slack in the rope pull a section back in and up through the notch, the pulley can now unwind its tension without winding up the rope. Now remove the pulley, it should leave the spring in the housing. If the spring is very rusty it should be replaced, if you've sprung the spring out and have a mess, be prepared for a little fight, you can try hooking the outside of the spring in its tab in the housing and while forcibly holding that in place begin coiling the spring back in place, or try gathering the spring into a large coil and holding the coil with a pair of pliers begin shrinking the coil's diameter by winding it up from the center, last resort and the one I'd recommend if you're looking at a rusty spring, get a new one from an Echo dealer, it comes pre-wound and a nifty retaining clip, it simply slides into place in the housing, and as it goes into place the ring will pop loose. Now for the rope. Install the rope by putting the new piece in the spool and tying it off, thread the other end through the housing from the inside out, and put it into the handle and tie it off on that end, now place the spool into the housing being sure to engage the spring lightly, now install the screw so the spool doesn't come out, pull the slack rope up through the notch in the pulley and begin winding the pulley in the direction it turns when the rope is normally extended, after about 4 turns drop the rope out of the notch and let the pulley wind up the rope, if you have slack repeat a couple turns until there is no slack

How do I replace the starter (pull) rope on a toro ccr2450 (model 38413)?


Although it looks like you simply un-bolt the recoil starter you need remove the whole blower (flywheel) housing as there are nuts on the back side.
  • Once the housing is off, remove the broken rope and prepare a length of rope to replace it base upon the old ropes length. Probably close to 6 feet.Don't forget to put the pull handle on the new rope.
  • Tighten the recoil pulley in the direction it normally turns as you pull the rope out until it stops.
  • Slowly back of up to one turn to align the hole in the pulley with the housing hole and hold it in that position while you insert the rope and try a sturdy knot.
  • Slowly let recoil assembly pull the rope back in and test that it is working properly before re-installing the housing.
  • Once you are satisfied that the recoil is working properly re-install the remaining covers.

Broken Cub Cadet


I dont own one or there but it is an easy repair. Find a wrench/socket that will fit the 3 or 4 bolts holding down the pull cord (recoil) cover and remove them and the cover. (Prob. a 10 mm socket) Then wrap a cord/narrow rope CLOCKWISE around the pulley 3-5 times and prepare mower to start as you normally would and pull the rope. Now you can cut your grass before it becomes unmanageable. Take the recoil to any small engine repair shop and have them replace the rope and then you can reinstall the recoil. In my area the charge $7-$10 for this.

Pull cord will not rewind


  • 1

    Turn the Homelite chainsaw so that the bar and chain are laying flat and the starter cover is facing up. Loosen the four starter cover screws by unscrewing them counterclockwise with the screwdriver.

  • 2

    Take the starter cover off of the engine. Turn the starter cover over to work on the pull starter. Pull the rope out about 6 to 8 inches.

  • 3

    Twist a loop into the end of the rope. Insert the intersection of the two ropes into the notch on the upper flange of the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the recoil spring has disengaged. Unwind the rope from the pulley. Cut off any old rope if you need to replace it with a new rope.

  • 4

    Unscrew the screw holding the pulley to the starter cover using the screwdriver. Take the pulley off the starter cover. Turn the pulley over and remove the recoil spring cassette from inside the pulley.

  • 5

    Inspect the spring inside the cassette to see if it is damaged or overstretched. Replace the recoil spring cassette if it is broken. Lubricate the post on the starter cover using about a dime-sized amount of engine grease.

  • 6

    Put the recoil spring cassette back into the pulley. Set the pulley onto the starter cover and tighten the screw down with the screwdriver. Wind the starter rope back around the pulley in a clockwise direction.

  • 7

    Leave about 6 to 8 inches of rope unwound. Form another loop at the end and insert the loop into the notch on the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the tension is set on the recoil spring.

  • 8

    Remove the loop and place the starter cover back over the engine. Pull the rope out 6 inches and tighten the starter cover's screws using the screwdriver. Release the rope and it should automatically retract


  • hope this helps

    How do you get the starter rope to rewind after pulling to start my 25 cc poulin pro trimmer? How do you access the recoil spring?


    The starter rope normally rewinds automatically when the recoil unit is functioning properly. If the pull rope has stayed out, disassembly will be required. Here are instructions for that problem. The recoil spring can break and is replaceable, but the nylon hub in the starter recoil unit is usually the problem or the rope has broken and jammed inside.
    Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 (Star bit or Torx head) screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a hammer and a dull flat-blade chisel or a small piece of wood unless there are bolts. then use a wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers and a good flat-blade screwdriver. Here are more details for servicing the starter/recoil unit....With the starter/recoil unit OFF the machine, with no rope in it, and no tension on it.....grasp the little nylon hub and turn it (clockwise is I recall) round and round 6-7 times until you feel the recoil spring get nice and tight...DO NOT LET GO OF IT!...hold it in place and then JAM the starter/recoil unit in place (still tight) inside it's housing by either clamping it with a tool like vise grips or by sticking a screwdriver thru it and thru the vents in the cover. If you have ANOTHER person to help you...one of you hold it in place....and make sure it is lined up to where you can NOW insert the new lenth of pull rope. Always use new rope....Feed the end thru the hole in the recoil unit and tie it off, by wrapping it around itself outside the nylon hub and then screw the little self-tapping set screw back in holding the rope down. OK...then feed the opposite end into the hole in the front engine cover and attatch the T pull handle....Now mind you, you are still jammming or holding the recoil in place against the spring!...Now, unclamp it or unjam it and slowly let the recoil pull the NEW rope you just installed back onto the pulley. Make sure it is fastened well on top of the pulley around the nylon hub and also fastened well onto the T pull handle. That is it. Then reconnect your wires, put your throttle cable back thru the engine cover and reinstall the Torx screws in the cover...and you are doneervicing the recoil unitl

    My lawnmower starter pull rope broke and i wanted to replace it myself to the something i can do myself. It is a craftsman 7.0 horsepower push lawn mower. Any body with step by step instructions and what...


    The biggest thing you need is time. There are no special tools required but it sure helps of there are 2 people available to perform this task.

    You will have to remove the recoil assy if it can be removed without the air shroud or the entire upper engine cover / air shroud with the recoil. This procedure should be performed by 2 people that are NOT distracted.

    First you will have to have a replacement rope. Burn the end of the new rope your going to install into the spool and pinch it so that the end is smaller than the rope and pointed. Install the pull handle on the new rope and make sure there is a good single knot on the end of the rope that goes into the pull handle.

    Next you will have to remove all pieces of the old starter rope.

    Then you have to pre-wind the spring of the recoil so that if you were to allow it to turn, it would turn in a direction that would pull the starter rope onto the recoil spool.

    NOTE: Once the pre-wind is done if anyone lets go of the spool it can DAMAGE the recoil spring!

    When your prewinding... Turn the spool until snugs and does not want to move anymore. Then back off the spool until the rope KNOT hole is aligned with the recoil rope guide.
    Thread the new rope through recoil rope guide and into the KNOT hole in the spool. (Ice pick scribe jewlers screwdriver... will be required to pull the new rope up and out through the knot hole. Then TIE a KNOT in the bitter end of the rope and pull the knot into the knot hole on the spool.
    FINALLY have 2nd person release the spool and it will rewind onto the spool.

    Install the recoil / air shroud.

    I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


    Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.
