You should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit

Coleman powermate vangaurd 9hp. how long is the pull start rope?


no set length on any recoil repair
old one will be stretched or broken

melt cord end for ease of fitting and no fraying through holes
and finishing knots

feed one end into recoil internal through outer and inner casing
then knot
set recoil spring into correct position and tension

cord is at least three times around recoil
leave excess cord out for pull handle and later adjustment

then cut .. melt end .. feed thought pull handle

then adjust as you test recoil off the motor

then fit to motor.. pull a few times

and final adjustment of cord length at the pull handle

How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".
Cheers..

Replacing pull cord on craftsman model 917-379470


Michele, first make sure there is enough cord left for a good pull. Slightly burn the end to melt it and stop it fraying when it goes back in. Turn the assembly over and wind it manualy anti clockwise until it stops due to the spring being tight. Ask someone to thread the cord through the hole on the top of the assembly and push it through until it comes out the other side. When its through put a knot in the end and then get your help to pull it back through. Release the thing with the spring slowly and it should pull the cord back in for you.This should fix it.

My pull cord broke. Is this something I can do or do I have to find a service person. By the way, I am a hurricane victim without power for at least a week. No service person is even accepting calls.


Hi Jimmy,

Here's a link to a YouTube video on replacing a starter rope. It might not be exactly the same as your generator but gives you an idea of what you have to do:

If you search in YouTube for "replacing pull cord + generator" you will find more videos.

Hope this helps!

I have a Briggs and Stratton power washer Quantumpower 5hp water driver series 1750 PSI 2.0 gal min model # WGV1721 . I got it used and it was always a bit hard to start but always started. Pull cord...


Spray well with WD-40 or similar, and take a small chisel, on it's edge, and hit hard enough to allow chisel to dig in to head of screw, making a "V" like slot in the head, then angle chisel slightly and start tapping in direction of loosening(counter clockwise.) Once it loosens enough to get a pair of visegrips attached to head, use them, and spin them out. Make sure you replace them with new screws.

Broken starter cord to petrol generater


You have to tighten the spring inside where the cord goes. The pull cord pulls on leverage by using a clock like spring like a lawn mower. You have to take it all the way apart. The cord part. To get to the spring.

It is strange answering this in a computer section. I answer computer questions and this is certainly not a computer question. Unless you have a wind up computer. Now I have heard of these. Where are you located, if this is a wind up computer.
