How do I replace the recoil spring in a Echo pb-400 blower

I have the starter apart. The new spring has a band around it to keep it tight. I can't figure out how to remove it (or do I remove it?)

SOURCE: starter rope on bv2000 weed eater blower needs to be replaced.

Hi, Try the following, But make dure you can wind the spring. If not the spring is broken.
Kurt
This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.

Turn on ignition switch, Choke, prime bulb 5 times (or until fuel flows), hold throttle down and pull starter cord sharply until it tries to start, then place choke in mid position pull cord sharply again until it runs then move choke to off when it will allow it.
Also you can go to toro.com then customer care, then manuals and parts then type in model no. and download an owners manual.

SOURCE: Echo backpack blower stops after 20 minutes

Make sure the fuel tank cap inlet valve is working properly, this will allow a vapor lock if it is not. Then check the fuel line in tank to make sure the pickup filter is not hung up in tank thereby allowing the fuel to get below the pickup. Also check the fuel line for holes. You can also try toro.com customer care, manuals and parts, type in model no. then get owners manual and see if in troubleshooting section it list this problem.

Briggs & Stratton 9000 diagram/repair manual. For the pull cord assembly. FREE


If you are going to be repairing B&S air cooled engines, may I suggest that you make a handy tool for repairing the pull cord starter. To access the pull cord assembly, remove the blower housing to expose the backside of the pull starter. All of the B&S pull start engines have a starter clutch that secures the flywheel to the crankshaft. These clutches go bad after a while. Go to a local repair shop and ask if you can have an old B&S starter clutch. Take it apart and keep the spindle. Have someone weld a T bar handle to the spindle. You will use this to reload the spring in the recoil starter, winding backwards to load the spring. Use a C clamp to hold it in place after loading the spring. Insert the new nylon pull rope through the grommet and out through the hole in the rope spool. Tie a figure 8 knot in the end of the new rope. Slowly release the C clamp to allow the spool to rewind, loading itself with new pull cord. You need about +/- 20 inches of pull cord. Replace the rubber handle on the pull cord and you are ready to mount to blower housing back on the engine. I hope this helps. PS. See the attached url for the Operator's Manual for the 9000 horizontal. http://www.tranzsporter.com/tpdf/Briggs%20&%20Stratton%209000.pdf

Pull cord


This is caused by a broken recoil spring. It can be replaced (or sometimes repaired) but it can be a dangerous and dirty job. The spring is cheap, so get a quote from a local shop for repairs.

Where do you find the serial number of a echo PB403T


Model and serial number are underneath the recoil starter, on the engine block. Tip the blow on it's non-engine side and look right above the tank from underneath the blower.

My starter bolt keeps comming undone and my starter snaps and breaks how do i need to install the bolts and washers correctly so it stays tight


Your problem may be from not positioning the starter correctly in the hole on assembly. Make sure that the face of the starter is in the bell housing hole all the way and is not at an angle when tightened up. Use new spring washers under the nuts or heads of the bolts and tension to around 60 ft/lbs

Replace pull cord


Echo is one of the easiest pull cords to fix, remove the screws on the rewind and take off the motor and flip it over and pull old rope out and put new rope in wind the spring the correct way so when you pull rope it tightens spring so it will wind back up when let go, not winding too tight !

Pull cord on briggs & strtton wont retract back


If you don't know how you will need a manual, it is kind of tricky.
Remove the rope. Feed the spring from the outside of the housing and connect to the recoil housing. Turn the wheel using a 3/4 " rachet extension and the spring will feed ito the housing until the end of the spring connects to the ouside of the housing. Keep turning until the spring is tight, back off about 1/2 turn and feed the rope from the outside, be carful here, if the extecsion comes out the spring will uncoil and you get to start off all over again.

Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight


I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight". Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in. They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord. Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle. Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord. This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.

How do you rewind the starter rope spring on an Echo PB-200 Blower.


assuming the spring has not broken behind the pulley causeing this problem you should be able to just re tension the spring, hook the starter rope into the slot in the side of the pulley, this will allow you to wind the pulley ( in the direction that the engine rotates ) up, when you have turned it enough times that the spring is coil bound ( be careful as the spring will be under a great deal of tension ) release the pulley then one whole turn, now unhook the starter rope and allow the spring to recoil ( dont just let it fly back ) and wind the rope in.

Cord is locked, or maybe its the motor. Its an Echo PB260L Backpack


This is easy enough to check. There are 4 screws that secure the recoil starter to the engine. Remove these 4 screws and remove the starter assembly. Pull on the rope and see if the starter is operating properly. If not, go to your local Echo dealer and get a new one...they are about $30. Also try to turn the starter cup by hand to see if the engine is locked up. If the engine is locked up, remove the spark plug and try to turn the starter cup again. If it is still locked up, then the repairs would cost more than a new blower.
Good luck!
