I have a 3hp briggs & stratton//the pull rope pulls freely//it does not engage the engine and turn the engine over


You probably need to replace the starter recoil. This is not a very expensive fix. Just be aware that this problem is usually caused by having to pull the starter rope excessively because of some other starting problem. Once you replace the recoil, keep your engine running properly.

Why is the rope starter not engaging the motor how do i fix it or do i need to return it


Try pulling the rope slowly until the starter engages the flywheel (you should feel when it engages) then give a good pull to start the engine. Don't give the rope a quick hard pull in one motion. You will probably need to do this three or four times before the engine starts. Of course push the primer button the number of times called for in your engine instructions before trying to start the engine. If you still don't think the starter is engaging the flywheel if would take it back where you bought it if it's new.

On setup starter rope will not pull out to thread through the rope guide.


Try engaging the opc lever that is on the handle to be able to pull the rope out farther.

My Poulan Pro 150E pull cord will not engage to start the weed eater. The rope comes out adn retracts back with no problem, but there is no pressure on the clutch to cause the motor to start. There is...


Sounds like the starter dogs are broken. They are little plastic teeth that engage to turn the engine when you pull the cord. You'll need to replace the whole starter assembly to fix this.

IT WILL NOT START. IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND


is the engine rolling over? If not the issue may be the coggs in the pull rope starter. There are coggs that fly out by centrifical force when you pull the rope if the coggs are not engaging properly they will sound like a tic-tic-tic when they try to engage and then slip.

Starter cord will not rewind after being replaced. The string will rewind in the housing before it is attached to the motor but not after being attached. How do you pre wind the springs?


What I do is the following:

Remove the old rope ( what is left of it)

Wind the starter rope pulley about 8 or 9 complete revolutions after I am confident that the spring has engaged the starter pulley

Hold the pulley in place ( align the rope hole in the pulley with hole in the starter housing

Insert the rope and tie a knot, pull the rope back tight against the pulley

Pull the rope all the way out and hold slight tension on the rope and release the tension on the pulley but still holding the starter housing

Starter spring should pull rope into housing... good luck
