Open Question

Starter rope on my mower broke inside the housing

I have an MTD Yard-Man (model 2476.371060, serial # 1A100C10904) maybe 8 years old or so. I went to start it first time this season. It starts with a pull string. It started right away but the pull string broke inside the housing. It broke only an inch or so from where it attaches to a rotary wheel. I took off the top cover and pulled out the knotted remnant of the string with a needlenose. I intended to thread the rest of the string through the same opening but it doesn't thread. I thought I'd have to remove a vented cover to thread it correctly, but lo-and-behold, the cover is rivetted onto the engine housing. Plus I think the rotary wheel must be turned a few time before the rope is attached to prime the tension (not true??). I don't see how I can do these things without taking that vented cover off.

Is ther some way I can fix this myself?

Thanks...

There should be 3 -3/8 or 7/16" bolts on the side of mower (where the spark plug is, there should be one) the other two will be just opposit of the two. Remove bolts and housing should be free.You might to remove any cables to free up any slack.

The operator presence bail must be in the run position to release the flywheel brake. If you can't pull the rope with the bail in the run position, your rope is fouled. You will have to remove the shroud and take it to a repair shop.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.

STARTING ROPE BROKE AND UNABLE TO START MOWER


Hi,,,,replaceing the rope is easy, just takes sometime. first, take the cover off the engine. turn the cover over and rope pully should be right there. Measure out 8 foot of new rope. burn both ends of rope so it don't fray. get all of the old rope off the pully. here is where an extra pair of hands come in handy. by hand rotate the rope pulley 6 revolutions, now have someone hold the pulley, then feed rope thru the cover and thru the pulley rope opening, then tie a knot in that end, now slowly release the rope and it will wind itself onto pulley, now put rope thru the handle and tie knot, now put back togeather and go mow your lawn,,,lol

Don't need to take it out. If you flip it upside down you can see the wheel the cord goes on. Inside the wheel you will see a slot with a hole in it . Get enough slack to cut the knot off and clean out the old rope.
The wheel has a coil spring in it the winds up like a clock spring.
DO NOT REMOVE the wheel if the spring is not broke. It is a pain to get back together .

Wind it up and then stick a screw diver though to keep it from unwinding. Line up the holes and feed a length of pull rope (3 feet or so long) through the holes and tie a knot in the end. Pull the rope and set the knot. Remove the screw driver and let the rope wind itself up. Put the handle on the loose end then pull just enough tension to tie another knot in the rope so the handle stay on and is snug against the assemble when released.

The pull cord broke I just can figure out how to


1) Remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope.
This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble!
2) Locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru
3) Determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out
*Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced
4) Obtained a length of rope appropriate for your engine, it is always better to have too much rope.
You can always shorten if it is too long.
Make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor
5) Wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull,
(this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound.
Remove 1/2 to 1 revolution.
6) Install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.
Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.
Then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.
8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
9) When the unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto engine.

That is the intake tube. You have to remove the rewind starter housing and the armature (what the sparkplug wire is hooked to) and unscrew it. IfI knew the engine model and type numbers, I could tell you the part number for the tube. They are located around the spark plug and stamped into the cover. Model-Type-Code.

If your rope broke, there was no reason to take the spring out. The rope can be replaced just by taking the rewind housing off, turning pulley to get rest of old rope out, wind the pulley (and spring) the direction the rope would be pull it when starting. Then , when it's wound tight, back off to align the holes in pulley and cover. Hold it there, stick about an 8' piece of rope from the outside through the pulley and tie a knot. Hold the rope and let the spring pull the rope back into the starter. an tie handle back. Take your housing, and spring to a shop. They can re-install the spring and put on a rope a heck of a lot cheaper that buying that whole assembly.

Lawn mower troubles


You must first remove the cover assembly which houses the starter pulley. Pull the old rope completely out until it no longer moves. Hold the starter pulley and remove the old rope. Try to wind the starter pulley spring tighter if possible. DON'T LET GO. The starter rewind spring must be wound before installing the new rope. After winding the spring, thread the new rope through the cover and into the hole in the pulley. Tie a good knot in the end and let the rope wind slowly into the housing. Once you have this done, replace the cover, get the proper length of rope, thread it through the handle, tie a knot in this end and your ready to go.
