Question about Garden
Before you start... transfer the handle assy to the new rope. Remove the old rope and install the new rope just like the old one. Make sure to tie 1 knot in the end of the rope so that the rope ded not pull out of the handle
-Remove the recoil assy.
-Remove the old rope.
-Wind the spool counter clockwise until it stops
-Back up the spool until the rope hole aligns with the rope guide. DO NOT let the spool unwind. It really takes 2 people to do this.
-Burn the end of the new rope with a match and very quickly while it is still soft. pinch the end of the rope to make it as small as possible.
-Thread the new rope through the rope guide and into the hole for the knot of the spool.
-Use a scribe or needle to lift and pull the new rope through the hole
-Tie 1 knot in the rope
-Pull the knot into the hole in the spool
-Let go of the spool and the rope will rewind
-Install recoil assy
-RETURN TO SERVICE
