How do I change the starter cord on a 22 inch mtd gas powered push mower. I have the intial housing removed but instead of screws on the starter cord housing it looks like rivets and I'm not sure how to take them out. Any suggestions?

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.

You have to remove the motor cover that the starter housing is riveted to. Usually three or four bolts around the perimiter of the housing and it will slide off with the starter housing.

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.

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.

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.
