Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)

if you left gas in the thing for those two years you need a total rebuild and cleaning of the carburetor. At this point the air filter has nothing to do with your problem.

How to replace the cranking pull cord?


Ok, the spring will more than likely unravel when you remove the pull cord cover/assembly. There is notch in the spool for winding the rope around it. So make sure the spring is wound enough to fit it in the housing. Then take the rope, already knotted and in the spool. Turn the spool in the direction that tightens the spring.Push down on spool and allow spring to retract the rope. (Don't forget to tie the knot in the rope handle before placing on mower). Then lightly clamp in vise or visegrip, or channel lock pliers. I like to use visegrips on one side, and channel locks on the other. Place over the square flywheel nut,release channelock pliers, hold with fingers tightly so the spring does not unravel. Then release visegrips and hold with other free hand, Place over flywheel nut and slide down. Re-attach with screw previously removed. Your done. Don't forget to tie the knot in the rope handle before placing on mower.

Craftsman 917-377150, the pull cord broke and the housing to replace it is rivited in place, can I drill these out, but then what?


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.

How do I replace the pull cord on a craftsman 6.75 HP EZ walk?


Remove the three or four bolts holding on the pull cover and lift it off the mower.

Get a length of new pull cord and fish it into the hole the cord comes out of while passing it into the cord reel underneath the cover. There should be a hole in the reel where you can see where the cord should come out. Then you tie a knot into that end of the cord. With the cord now on the reel you wind it backwards with free end of the cable enough turns to **** in the free cord when you let it go. Usually 6-10 turns minimum. Remember to allow for the distance to the lawn mower handle! Unless your cord terminates at the top of the pull cover.

Good luck and be careful!

I want to change the pull crd on my 6.5 hp craftsman lawnmower


remove the engine shroud. Pull the cord all the way out. Put a screw driver into the fins so it does not unwind. Cut new cord and install through hole in shroud and the rewinder. Reattach handle to cord and hold onto rope and pull screw driver out. Slowly let cord rewind. Pull a couple of times to make sure it is working. While engine shroud is off us a piece of emery cloth or fine sandpaper to clean off the magnets on fly wheel and the two little prongs close to the fly wheel.

Good luck let me know if this helps.

Starter cord only pulls 1 foot


Most push mowers have 3 bolts on the side of recoil shroud. One in front, (where plug is) and two on side.
