Possible answer 1 (a very good description of tension adjustment is on the video in answer 2; about 1:20 into film):
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

How to recoil the spring on a pull start cord for a craftsman pressure washer model # 580 750 400


If no repair manual. It could be spring is broken. So I'd look for spring, and instructions to install spring. That should give you a good idea. I suppose the handle came off and lost the rope inside? Probably need new rope too. Same kind of instructions would apply in how to recoil if it's not broken.

How do I replace recoil spring on generator


Depending the manufacture of the engine the actual replacement varies. You basically need to first remove recoil starter cover assembly. In the center in most recoil rope pulleys will be screw(bolt) that need to be removed. Pay close attention the assembly order or the parts; take picture if necessary. Once you things a part and old spring is removed. Be careful even broken springs can go flying and cause injuries. Carefully put the new spring in the correct direction. Re-assemble the rope pulley unit. To put tension on the spring you wind the pulley in the same direction as it would if you was pulling the rope out. Wind until it stops then unwind up to one turn depending where the rope enters the pulley and install the starter rope. After the starter rope is installed slow let the pulley take up rope slack. Then you re-install the starter cover assembly on the engine.

Note on some engine other components needs removing just to the starter cover off. I know of some Briggs engine that this is true as the carburetors has to come off first.

Recoil spring problem


I have the same chainsaw and have never had a problem with it.

If you have changed the starter rope or recoil spring in the past, it is important that you hold the new spring with needle nose pliers and install it correctly. Once the spring is in make sure wind the rope correctly-clockwise. If not the new spring will be damaged.

How do I replace the pull rope on my bl100 trimmer? I know how to install it just not how to get it to rewind.


You are going to need to "preload" the spring in your recoil/starter unit BEFORE you install the pull rope. Turn in in the direction where you feel it becoming tighter. Turn it about 5-7 revolutions. Don't get carried away and make it REAL tight as you will break the spring steel recoil spring. After you have it set, jam it or hold it with vise grips or a screwdriver or with your hands and have someone install the pull rope. Make sure the handle is installed on the end of the pull rope before you begin because when you let the recoil pull your new rope in the handle will stop it. There should be a little bit of tension left on the pull rope once it is drawn in all the way.

How do I install a recoil spring ?


Sometimes the hook at the end of the starter spring has broken off from rust or has straightened itself out. What I do if I don't have time to get a new spring is make myself a hook and attach it to the notch. Then you have to manually wind the spring in the right direction and hope that the spring doesn't unravel on you. Wear safety goggles for that!
If I need to get it started without the recoil spring, I just wrap the starting rope around the engine and start it that way until I have time to get a new part.

Starter recoil spring reload, How?


If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

Installing recoil spring for Poulin P3314


Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH
