I've a 1435 and it has no reed-valve- it's piston-ported inlet, like yours.<br />If there's a spark-plug installed, and the crank is turning (pop the top cover and look) then you've a big problem, likely requiring replacement of piston

Pull rope on chainsaw is very hard to pull, but easy with sparkplug out. What could be the problem?


You are not strong enough to pull the starter when there is engine compression due to the plug in place.

Check to see if there is a compression release for starting.

Hard to pull starter rope with spark plug in


You have to overcome the 100-135 psi of compression by pulling the rope. Some manufacturers now incorporate a 'compression release' to allow a rapid spin of the engine with a moderate pull. It automatically resets when it fires so you may have to push the compression release more than once to get them started.

Yours does not have that option which is why they suggest sitting the saw on the ground and inserting your toe into the handle while holding the front of the saw down with one hand. That allows you to ge a bit agressive with the pull rope with the other.

When trying to start my Partner K650, I can only pull the starter cable a very short distance before it snatches back, it feels like too much compression. Any help or advice please. Many thanks, Bob


Hello Bob, I have a Partner K750. It has a compression release valve that screws into a threaded port on the cylinder jug. I push the blue button and pull the starter rope.

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.

Gx160 pull cord rope broken


1. Buy a starter repair kit or get five feet of nylon rope similar to what was in the starter from a Lowe's, The Home Depot or the like.
2. Remove the three bolts holding the starter on the motor and remove any remaining rope on the pulley.
3. Line the hole in the pulley up with the hole in the starter housing and thread the rope through both.
4. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope and cut the tail off so it won't interfere with motor but not so short the knot comes undone.
5. Thread the other end of the rope through the t-handle and tie a knot in the very end so the handle won't come off and the rope won't be pulled into the starter during the next part.
6. Pull the rope up between the starter housing and pulley and get the rope into the notch in the pulley. Turn the pulley clockwise with the rope in the notch to put tention on the spring. Give it four turns.
7. When the notch gets back to the hole in the housing, hold the pulley and pull the rope back into place from outside the housing.
8. Let the pulley turn slowly so it retracts the rope.
9. You want four windings on the pulley and the t-handle to be held against the housing. If you don't get four windings on the pulley, give the pulley another tension turn (Step 6). If you have four windings and the t-handle isn't held against the housing or you get more that four windings, shorten the rope at the t-handle.
10. Reinstall the starter and you will be back in business.

Starter rope hard to pull. It's not smooth and takes a lot of effort.


Make sure the brake is off and retest. If brake is off and still difficult to pull, remove the side cover, chain, bar and retest. If still not right (remove sparkplug), remove the muffler and make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean and verify that the cylinder and piston look clean and smooth by looking into port. You can clean the cylinder by spraying wd40 and pulling the rope untill it all comes back out. Verify that the rope pulls smoothly before you reinstall the spark plug. If all looks good, reinstall muffler and retest. If the compression is normal, it should be rather hard to pull thru the compression stroke. Reinstall bar and chain for final test.

Troy-bilt pull rope torx screw: Is there a trick to remove the torx screw in the center of the starter spring housing?


There is no trick, you would just use a torx screw driver. If your spring isn't broken don't do this. If your rope is broken you can fix easily. Replace old rope with new rope of equal size, place rope into spring wheel and turn counter clock wise holding the spring wheel. place other end of rope thru hole in shroud, remember to hold tight you have a lot of tension there. Pull rope thru enough to tie a knot, replace your pull handle , untie the knot and you should be fine. GOOD LUCK.

The rope on my generator gets stuck as i pull to turn it on


Assuming the rope stays on the internal pulley, it is NORMAL for the rope to require great force at points in the cranking cycle (once per revolution of the crankshaft). These are the compression strokes and the force is MANY times the initial pulling force. If the rope returns easily, then the starter assembly is probably normal. It takes a strong arm and fast movement to start the enginess via pull rope. Some units have a compression release to ease this a bit.

Starter rope will not pull. Will pull smoothly


If I understand what you are saying... The starter pulls smoothly with the starter cover removed or when installed and the plug removed (no compression or spark). If this is correct I think your saw's timing has slipped or maybe a defective decomp valve. Time to visit your neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic.HTH

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps
