This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps

Replacing the pull rope on a push mower is pretty. First of all remove the air shroud usually 3 screws, on some units after removing the shroud you will need to remove the rewind unit it self. Remove the rope from the rewined mechanism and lay it aside. Now rewind the unit by hand until it is tight then back it off to align the hole. Use a c clamp to hold the spool. Measure the rope roufly do not cut yet. Insert the rope. and tie the knot.Ease off the c clampand let the unit rewind. Put unit back together inreverse order.

Repair lawn mower pull cord


Home Depot sells a replacement pull cord kit that has great instructions. My mower, however, had pop rivets holding the cover on the engine, so if yours does too, get a pop rivet tool with the correct size pop rivets before you start drilling out the old pop rivets.

Recoil will not pull. The walk behind MTD,Yard Machine mower, a B&S 500 Series stalled while mowing. I went to restart and pull cord will not pull more then a few inches. How do I go about the fix?


If all the safety gear is working on the mower; Possibly sounds like you let it run low on oil and the engine is locked up.
Which would mean a new mower.
