The rope may be bound up in the recoil. Take the recoil cover off(the piece where the pull rope goes into) and try to pull the rope with the housing off. If it pulls freely try turning the engine by hand, you may want to remove the spark plug to release the compression. If the unit will not turn over,then the pressure pump may have failed. Best of luck.

Stihl BG 55 Blower Starter Rope Won't Pull.


indications are that there is insufficient oil in the mix and the ring has failed and jammed
you may have to pull it right down or simply junk it
if it has been discontinued then parts may also be scarce

Pressure washer was working fine then it shut off. and now I cant pull the string


Whoa! Wait when water pressure is at hose you have to pull the trigger on wand to release pressure so the engine can turn freely. It has so much pressure at wand that it will not let you turn enging over. If not It may have froze up. Check the oil first , no oil then it is locked up. If not you can remove pull rope cage and try to turn it manually.

Pull starting rope Broke


Most recoil assemblies are easy to fix...but not in an obvious way. Remove the recoil asembly from the small engine housing/flywheel cover. Usually three bolts hold it on. 10mm on Honda's. Pull the remaining rope thru the exit hole if possible. Otherwise, fish remaining rope thru the hole by turning rope winding pulley as if pulling handle was still attached, lining up any remaining rope end and pushing thru the exit hole in outer recoil housing or backing it out the inside pulley. Continue to wind rope winding pulley in a counterclockwise ( facing pulley...not outer metal) untill it will not tighten any further. Remove any more old rope. Line up pulley hole and exit hole. Melt end of new rope into a tapered shape..if not supplied that way. the pulley can be held in place by inserting a screwdriver thru the both the pulley and the metal housing spokes. Thread the new rope thru the exit and pulley hole. Tie the rope end sticking thru and draw tight. Cut 6 feet of rope...if not using a presized pull. Release screwdriver from spokes and rope should draw up onto the pulley. Tie off opposite end of the rope to keep from losing that end into the exit hole. put the handle on the rope and tie a knot in the end to retain the handle. Untie the tie-off and allow the handle to fully retract. If handle does not fully retract you may shorten the rope so that it does...as long as you have plenty of pull lenght

The blade will not turn on my Ranch King 6.0. I cannot budge the pull cord and can barely turn the blade manually. What can I do?


check to see if it is if the cylinder is full of gasoline. remove spark plug and turn motor over.
caution, disconnect and ground spark plug wires, do not stand in front of spark plug hole, you may get sprayed with gasoline. spin motor with starter or pull rope.
if this doesn.t free up the blade look under it for "stuff around the drive shaft. clear it out.
other solutions are expensive and involve bent cranks.

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

Pull rope broke. attached back but cant figure out how to make the rope recall work


The recoil spring has to be pre-loaded about 5 turns, even when the rope is fully returned. When you pull out the rope, you increase this tension, but if you are starting from zero, there won't be enough spring tension to fully recoil the rope. Wind the rope on the spool, then rotate the spool about 5 turns in the direction that would "push" the rope out through the hole. Now put the rope through the hole and put the handle on it. If you got the tension right, it should be sufficient to easily hold the handle up against the hole.

I change oil on my 3700 psi honda motor pressure washer motor and pump and after i done that the tigger rope is to hard to pull looks like some who is pressure some where can some one help me whit this...


Most likely has nothing to do with oil change. Have someone hold the trigger on handle open to relieve pressure on system/pump , this will make engine turn easier when you pull rope.
