SOURCE: When I pull the cord it makes a snapping sound and

Pull the spark plug, and then pull the motor thru a few pulls. Clean the pull with small wire brush, and reinstall. If the motor still pulls hard, it may have gotten moisture in the fuel.
drain fuel completely and pour fresh in.

I just had this same issue. I found out that you have to take the cord out of the handle then put the spool in. You then rotate the spool back in and align the spool with the spring and fish out the cord which will put a small amout of tension on it. You keep the tension on it and put the handle back on.

SOURCE: Pull cord broken. After removing red hood and

You don't need to remove the rivets. There should be two metal tabs that bend over the nylon retractor, or it'll have a screw in the middle of the retractor pulley inside the cover. you bend those up a little, or remove the screw, remove the retractor, be careful, because that spring can be fun if it gets away from you, take the old rope out, put the retractor back in place, wind it back as far as you can, feed the rope in, tie the knot, and let it draw the rope in. Put everything back like you found it, and your pull rope if fixed.

How do I replace a pull cord for pm 605 mcculloch chainsaw?


First remove the pull starter housing.
The next part is tricky. You'll have to release and unwind the spring that rewinds the pull starter cord. Remember how you do this because after replacing the cord, you'll have to rewind the cord and spring before inserting it back in the housing.
re-attach the pull cord housing to the chain saw.
Hope this helps.

The pull cord on my Cub Cadet OHV 173cc self propelled mower broke.. I'm somewhat handy and should be able to fix it myself, however I've never done this before. I have the engine housing...


Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that). I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then. I am not sure why folks are giving you spark plug settings when you are asking about the cord. :)

I have a yard machines 31cc y28 17'' how do I fix the pull string it is pulled out fully


Take the top cover off, You should then see 4 bolts around the engine cover, take these out and the cord head will come of,Depending on where the cord broke is the question of using the same cord, But if you're getting a new cord you will need to thread the cord into the eye for the cord, Tie a knot to prevent it pulling apart. then tie your handle on. After this you will wind the cord up tight on the pulley and a screw driver holding the pulley from moving while you put the cord and cap back on the engine, You can then start back installing the bolts and the other cover..

Spring replacement


Replacing the spring on this tiller can be tough. You have to get the tension spring set into the stop and partially wind the tension (by turning the cord pulley) and THEN attach the cord before completing winding the tension spring. It took me about an hour to figure out how much preset of tension was needed before I was able to get it to work. You have to partially preset tension because starting from zero will not fully rewind the cord.

Troy-bilt 4-cycle Garden Cultivator TB144 pull cord not rewinding.


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.
