Hello,

Remove the cover to the pull reel. On some models, this will be as simple as removing the 3 or 4 screws set in the casing. On other models, you may need to use a socket set to first remove the upper portion of the engine casing.
Locate the 3 metal clips that hold the tension wheel to the pull rope pulley. Gently pry the clips off the tension wheel using your fingers or a flathead screwdriver. Be very careful not to bend the clips out of shape while you do this. Once the clips are undone, pull the tension wheel off the pull rope pulley.Pull any remaining rope to the right to unspool it from the pulley. At the rope's end, you will see a small channel cut into the side of the pulley that the rope is placed in with a knot at its end; this is how the rope remains connected to the pulley. Simply use your fingers to pull the rope out of the channel, and discard the old string.

Unwrap your replacement cord. If the cord does not already have a metal stop attached to one end, tie a small knot in it, and push the cord and knot into the channel on the pulley so if you pull on the cord, the end remains in the pulley and will not come free.

Hold the cord so that there is some tension on it, and begin to turn the pulley to the left so the cord wraps around it. Use the end you are holding to guide the cord as it wraps so it forms an even layer on the pulley (not wrapped unevenly to one side or the other). When you have about 3/4 of the cord wrapped, stop.

Pull the cord off the pulley (to the right), and guide it up the frame of your Lawn Boy mower to where it will attach to the pull handle. Tie the cord end into the pull handle. Go back to the pulley, and turn it to the left again until the cord brings the pull handle up to the frame of the mower.
Re-clip the tension wheel to the pulley. Make sure the clips fit snugly. Pull the string several times by the pull handle using a quick, sharp movement to set the tension to the pulley. Return the covers you removed, and you are ready to go.

Take care.

I got a 1989 big bear it pulls to the right i put new tie rid ends and upper and lower balk joints in pulled cv axel it seems to be ok steering bearings seem fine also anyine have any ideas


Try aiming the handle bar straight and pull some kite string across the rear wheel , lightly touching the sidewalls of the tire. With the length of the string pulled across the front tire, adjust the outer tie rod so as to make front tire lightly touch the string. That should square the front tire to the back tire. Once the front and rear are squared, adjust tie rod in 1 turn for a slight negative toe. Do both sides while making sure to keep the handle bar straight during string and adjustment. That should help.

How to string an electric guitar


I'm writing this tutorial to help new guitarists string their electric guitars.<br /><br />The first step is to purchase some strings from your nearest music store, depending on the type of music you want to play the string gage will be different. If you want to play heavier music such as metal then I suggest using a heavier gage of string. If you want to play calmer music such as indie, or maybe soft rock I suggest a lighter gage.<br /><br />Next make sure and remove <span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL</span> existing strings. The best way to take off the old strings is to simply loosen them up then cut them right in the middle with wire cutters. Then just pull the left end through the tuning knobs, and the right end through the back of the guitar (Note where the strings come out of the back).<br /><br />After you have removed all the strings its time to put on the new ones. Start with the string closest to the top of the guitar. On your string package you can reference by color which string is which. Find your string then run the sharp end through the back of the guitar in the hole relative to the string you are putting in (These holes in the back are the same holes the old strings came out of). Run the string all the way through so that it is pulled tightly into the back. Now place the sharp end of the string through its relative tuning knob at the top of the guitar. You should pull enough through so that when you pull the string up off the neck there is a gap of about one foot. Now turn the tuning knob clockwise until the string is relatively tight against the neck and it has wrapped around the knob 3-5 times. Now cut the excess string that is coming out of the tuning knob but leave about 1 inch in case you want to lower the tuning. <br /><br />Do the same thing for all your strings, then tune them with either a digital tuner or by ear if you can. You can purchase a cheap digital tuner for around $20 at your nearest music store.<br /><br />Enjoy!!

Did you put the right amount of string back in the trimmer? If you put back too much it will tangle up.

Pull string came off as I was trying to start it.


there should be three or four screws to the top of the mower where the string goes, after purchasing new pull string make sure you wind the spring when you re string, so that when you put the cover back on it will be spring loaded and in proper working condition

I need to fix athe pull string on my toro push behind mower. it has an 195cc tecumseh motor. the string broke and i can't find anything on toro about how to fix it without buying the whole assembly.


remove bolts from cover and remove the cover. Should be able to access the assembly for the pull rope. Go to a local mower repair shop buy some new line. The old line should just be knotted up on the spring loaded wheel in there. You put a new piece on put in a new knot, put some turns on the assembly to basically wing the spring so it snaps back when pulled, put line through whole and attach to pull handle.

How to change the string


If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer, just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool.
