Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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.
