The end-of cord knots are simple overhand knots, but you need to melt the cord ends back a little so that the knots won't pull out (do the outer end after threading the cord through the handle). You have to wind up the spring so that it has good 'pullback', but not so far that the spring binds-up when trying to start the engine. Wedge the spool so that it doesn't unwind, then run the cord into the spool, heat the cord end, and tie the knot. Fish the cord around the spool in a CCW direction until the spool is nearly filled. Thread the cord out through the port on the outside, then slide on the handle, heat the cord end, and tie another knot. Hope this helps!

I replaced the starter cord on a Husqvarna 55 rancher chainsaw and when I reassemble the starter won't turn. Any ideas?

Is it possible that the crank shaft seized first and caused the pull rope to break?

Starter rope only pulls out about an inch, then is locked

Better take the cutting blade off and see if u can turn the motor over by hand. It may be seized. Or take the pull starter off to see if the rope is fouled.

How do I put a new pull rope on my 5hp MTD Chipper?

pull the starter cover pull rope out to length lock the housing the rope is in, in place with a tool pull out rope. reinsert new rope into retaining hoe tie a not and cut off excess rope. put ropr through handle hole reattach handle and remove tool you used to hold the rope housing. This is if your spring and starter assembly are ok. Or you could stop being a cheap and let a shop do it for 5 minutes labor.

Pawls don't catch on rancher 455

The starter pawls are held on with small springs. If the springs are broken or installed incorrectly, this can happen. I would suggest replacing the springs and maybe the pawls. Check the recoil assembly to make sure the issue is not with the recoil assembly.

Starter rope grabs at times. why?

try using the de-compression button when starting, will do the same as removing the spark plug but without removing the spark plug.

Failing that, remove the starter cover and check starter cord for daage or signs of snagging.

I have a Husqvarna 338. I'm having difficulty re-installing the pull rope. Is there a trick to it or a special tool.

There are no special tools required,with the pulley still connected its just a matter off threading the knotted rope through the starter pulley hole, hold the rope on the side of the pulley and turn the pulley to wind up the spring, allow the pulley to unwind pulling the rope in, with the rope fully extended make sure you still have at least half a turn left on the pulley, this will stop the spring coil binding.

I have removed the flywheel side of a 371xp husq, how does the clutch side come off? Puller ?

A YouTube video shows the procedure using a Husqvarna 350 here:
1. Look at the IPL it may require special tools.
2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and be cut when the piston rises.
3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Let us know how it worked for you. GL
