How to remove clutch?

I have a tb144 that needs its pull cord replaced. I have the clutch drum off, and can't seem to remove the clutch since it is screwed on. What tool would I use to hold the shaft stationary so I can remove the clutch? And how would I use it?

You have to pull the spark plug and fill the cylinder with some small rope then using a big pair of locking pliers you can loosen the clutch. There should be markings on the clutch as to the direction to unloosen.

This type of pull starter design is very poor and fails often. Cheap parts and cheap design leads to poor performance and yet Troybuilt still doesn't give free parts or an upgraded design.

Replace pull cord


Replacing a pull cord is not easy. After you remove the shaft, then the drum cover, you are left with the drum and clutch. There is a screw in the center of the drum which has to come off. Then there is a the clutch which if not removed correctly will come apart on you. Only after both parts are remove can you get to the pull cord.

How do you change the clutch?


Remove the side casing. (bar side)
Take off bar and chain.
Remove E-clip holding the clutch drum on.
Remove clutch drum and needle cage bearing.
This should expose the clutch.
Remove spark plug.
Use a piston stop to stop the piston rising, Sometimes a knotted piece of pull cord fed into the cylinder is just as good.
Turn the clutch clockwise with a socket to unscrew.

To put clutch back on turn anticlockwise till piston cycles back and hits the piston stop again and tighten. Replace spark plug and clutch drum, bearing, bar and chain and side casing.

Chain revolves when pulling starting cord. Difficult to start and when it goes the chain is permanently engaged. Cluch? What does a worn clutch look like and can I replace it myself?


Yes it could well be the clutch, if the springs are weak, or have broken, however it could also be the drum bearing, if this has not be lubricated it can seize on the crank and will turn the chain all the time, either way you need to remove the clutch and drum, if you can pull the clutch shoes out by hand the springs have gone weak, if the drum does not turn freely on the crank, it may be just a case of lubricating the bearing.

Pull rope brok on my weedeater i can"t get the clutch cover off to fix it


The clutch cover is usually held with a number of screws around the outside edge, you then need to remove the clutch, as the cover cannot come off with this in the way, there is normally a 9/16 or a 1/2 nut holding the clutch on, there will then be a large washer, then a tube through the clutch houseing as the clutch nut also holds the flywheel on.

How do you remove the clutch drum assembly for model #316.791890


Your clutch drum is held on with a Torx head screw which is screwed into the end of the crankshaft. To lock the engine up so crank won't turn, remove the spark plug, rotate the engine so the piston is down and put some clean pull rope or otherwise soft material in cylinder. ...make sure it is something that won't hang up in the ports on the sides. Then when you rotate the crank, it will compress the rope or soft material, locking up the engine to facilitate removal of the Torx screw, The screw will come loose but will probably not come all the way out...that's just the way they made it.

Replacing pull cord on weedeater


there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.
