You do not need any special tools but you do need a third hand somtimes to complete the job.
Here are the basic steps after you remove the starter from the engine:
Prepair the new starter rope by burning the end to keeping it from fraying and shape it into a point. Use a rag to shape the point because it will be very hot. (about 5 feet of good qualty starter rope size to match existing. It is sold in sizes form about 3.5 to 6.5) Tie a temp knot on the other end of the new rope. Remove the old rope and align the hole in the spool with the hole on the starter cover and practice incerting the rope thru the guide hole on the cover into hole on the spool . This will be the final action after you wind the spool. You should be able to hold the spool and insert the rope thru both holes and tie a knot while holding the spool in a wound state. Once you have mastered incerting the rope thru both holes and tying a knot you are ready to begin.
Wind the spool in the same direction that the spool turns when you pull the rope. You must wind in the correct direction or you may bend the rewind spring out of shape. The spool will begin to tighten as you wind and will eventually stop turning when the spring is fully wound. Once fully wound unwind spool one full turn and stop when hole on spool aligns with hole in cover. Now insert rope as practiced thru both holes and tie knot with free hand or have helping hand. Once knot is tied slowly let spool take rope in untill no more will go in or you reach temp knot. Now tie pull handle and you are done. Good luck

What can I try next?


Get two short extension cords and cut the FEMALE end off each one. Strip back the insulation on that end. Connect the two green wires to each other, and connect the two white wires to each other.

Connect one black wire to a light switch, and connect the other black wire to a 20W appliance-type incandescent light bulb. Also run one short black wire (from a cut-off end) from the second terminal on the light bulb to the second terminal on the switch, like so:

plug -- black -- switch -- black -- bulb -- black -- plug
plug -- white ----------------------------------- white -- plug
plug -- green ---------------------------------- green -- plug

Turn the switch to the OFF position.
Start the generator. Plug one plug from your new rig into an outlet on the generator. Plug the other plug from your new rig into a wall outlet supplying 120V. With the generator running, turn the switch to the ON position.

The bulb should flash for a short while, then become steady. When it's steady, that side of the generator is flashed. Repeat for the other side of the generator if it makes 240V.

What can make diesel engine to vibrate surdenly when the engine is running on load from a air compressor


When the compressor starts, initially there is a very large current draw by the compressor motor. Depending on the size of the generator and compressor motor, this could cause the generator to stumble for a few seconds, but this should smooth out within 3-5 seconds.

Cant start my ust 2300w generator


If there is a spark at the plugs ignition is fine, spraying starter in the intake should allow it to at least fire?? even if you had a carb / fuel issue. I would recommend a compression test and better still a leakdown test to determine if you have weak compression

My brand new UST 1200W generator engine start OK (single pull) when choke on but won't stay up when choke is off. I changed oil after the first 4 hrs of use. Has this to do with the gasline I used?


It is possible that it may be having trouble if you have some bad gas but I would be more inclined to check the float to make sure it is not hanging up and allowing to much gas to get to engine. I would adjust idle and fuel mix screw all the way shut and then start opening them up about 1/4 turn at a time and try to start and run between adjustments.Only try to start it once or twice in between adjustments to avoid flooding. If you can get it to run good then turn screws one more time or until engine starts missing a little then slowly close until it runs smoothly.Hope this helps you. Thank you.

UST GAS GENENTOR TG3000 WE DO NOT GET ELEC FROM THIS WE REPLACED FUSE AND STILL NOTHING SEEMS LIKE IT RUNNING GOOD WHAT CAN BE THE PROB


If it has been sitting for a while the electrical field may need to be flashed. Check falshing a generator and follow the directions. This should excite the generator and start generating again.

When I start my generator it just lugs and shakes and will not get going. I have a UST 2300w generator modle GG2300. thanks jeffery


OK, you have a hard to find info on model. My first thought is that your choke is still on.
Does it have a manually activated choke? If so you know what to do, after she kicks, turn it off.
If it is one of the new Auto-choke units you may need to find the choke linkage and disengage
it that way. I have asked for a manual for your from UTS. We will see what they send, or dont!
As with all engines, if left in storage for long periods of time, use fuel stabilizer and try and start
the engine every 30 days and let it run for 10-15 minutes just to warm up and keep everything moving.

I have a UST GG5500 portable generator and it will not produce electricity. The engine starts fine but it doesnt generate any power.


Check your circuit breakers to see if they are tripped or damaged. Then take a look in the end of alternator / generator at the field windings. Check for damage to the brushes, as well as the diode for continuity in 1 direction only. Look for damaged capacitor regulator. Replace as needed.
