Not sure but the screws you mention are probably whats called a TORX head. Usually a 20 or 25. Sometimes, if there not too tight an allen head will work but I recommend getting the right tool so as not to strip it out. They are available at any decent hardware store in screwdriver style or as a bit set that fits a 1/4" drive socket.

Oil leak on poulan snow lower


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  • Remove the hex bolts holding the plastic leaf blower housing in place with your hex wrench. You may wish to cut the cord with your scissors and loosen the bolt or screw securing the rope assembly with your hex wrench or screwdriver.
  • 2 Remove the spring assembly carefully. Do not remove the spring, only remove the assembly.
  • 3 Remove the old cord from the leaf blower pull cord assembly by gently pulling it away from the assembly with your hands. Notice the direction the pull cord is wound, as this becomes important in the next step.
  • 4 Wind the new pull cord in the same direction you removed it in Step 3. Make sure the inner end of the pull cord secures in the faster or slot provided on the pull cord assembly. This varies depending on the leaf blower manufacturer.
  • 5 Replace the pull cord pulley and place over the spring. This is the white plastic spool.
  • 6 Rotate the pull cord assembly two or three times in the same direction the cord pulls wearing safety goggles and work gloves. Reinsert the center screw by screwing it in place with your screwdriver; this holds the pulley assembly together
  • 7 Insert the leaf blowers cord end into the end of the handle opening. Secure the handle by tying a knot at the bottom of the new pull cord; this prevents the handle from being pulled off the pull cord while you start the leaf blower.
  • 8 Place the pull cord assembly back onto your leaf blower in its designated area and secure by refastening the four hex nuts with your hex wrench.
  • 9 Replace the housing cover of the leaf blower and refasten the hex nuts with your hex wrench. You removed the housing cover in Step 1.

Replacing cord on polaris 250 ATV ??


CORD? THE ONE TO START THE ENGINE.
Park the Polaris ATV on level ground in an area with plenty of light. Allow the engine to cool if it is warm so that you don't burn yourself.Remove the four Phillips head screws from the corners of the metal cover that the cord is coming out of using the screwdriver. Pull the metal cover off the engine. Unwrap the cord from around the turn wheel completely.Spin the turn wheel using your hand until the nut securing the cord is at the top of the wheel facing you. Grab the metal stem on the cord with the pliers. Loosen and remove the nut using the box wrench. Hold the stem to keep the cord from turning as you loosen the nut.Pull the cord off the turn wheel and through the hole on the metal cover. Keep the nut just in case the new cord did not come with one. Insert the metal stem on the new cord into the hole on the metal cover. Insert the stem into the hole on the turn wheel.Tighten the nut onto the stem the opposite way than you removed it. Spin the turn wheel counterclockwise until you hear the spring lock into place. Wrap the new cord around the turn wheel. Make sure that the cord does not overlap itself. Replace the metal cover to the engine. Replace and tighten the screws to secure the cover to your Polaris's engine.

    The cord came out of my Pouland Pro model PPb430Vs leaf blower. I took the unit apart put the cord back on the spool, put unit back together. Pulled the cord but the cord did not re-coil?? What...


    I will give you instructions for fixing the recoil unit on a trimmer. The blower instructions are the same, just the configuration is different. The key is to maybe have someone help you.
    OK...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 thru the housing hole and into the hole in the pulley.. 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 done

    How do I replace the pull start?


    Remove the four screws securing the starter houseing, with the starter removed, pull the cord out, tuck the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley and allow the cord to wind in slowley to let the tention off the spring, make sure all the tention has gone, now remove the centre screw, take away the pulley centre and the round spring from behind, note the hole in the pulley and the centre hub for the spring location, now carefully remove the pulley, be aware there is a large spring behind, remove the knot in the end and remove the starter handle, fit the cord back into the new pulley, refit the pulley into the cover making sure to locate into the spring behind, thread the cord back through the cover and reconnect the handle, knot the cord, re fit the round spring back into the locating hole in the pulley, re fit the pulley hub making sure the spring fits into the hole in the hub, re fit the securing screw, now put the cord back into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, wind up the spring, allow it to pull the cord back into the starter, only wind it enough to pull the cord fully back into the cover, re fit the starter.

    How do i replace i pull cord on Poulan 031 Pro ?


    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 screw inside the drum.. 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 dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use 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 bottom 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 something so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers ranging from T-15 to T-25

    Trying to fix the pull cord on my Poulan push mower... Removed the top cover and don't know what tool to use to remove the cover for the cord - any ideas?


    Many mowers use large bolts, which you can remove with the right-sized nut driver. Do you see any bolts sticking out of the cover? If you don't have a nut driver, a socket wrench or even adjustable pliers will work.

    Jammed pull cord on Poulan P4018 chainsaw!


    There maybe a split pin holding the cover down over the spindle! Not too sure, but possible. Could be pushed down the centre, just a case of having a good look. Only really worked with Hurqvarna's and Makita's. Hope it helps. Good Luck

    Pull cord is locked: not the reload spring


    Often times I fear this part. But it seems there are a lot of frustrated people on here that no one is getting back to. So here goes....

    If the flywheel is locked up, then the engine is locked up. Sorry.

    Poulan 16" cannot start...pull cord locked up


    Remove the cover, should be 4 screws that holds it on once the 4 screws are loosened the rope could rewind on its own. If not check to make sure the spring is not broken.

    If you put a longer cord on it , then it will not retract as far and get stuck.
