You could, but you shouldn't. I assume you need to replace the cord? Remove bolts from the whole sheet metal housing, and remove the cord reel from inside.

How do I access the pull cord on an Ariens 911072 to replace it?


If housing has screws you take the screws out and take the housing off but if the housing has rivets you take a small drill bit and a cordless or electric drill and drill the rivets out being careful not to make the rivet holes any bigger. Take the housing off and replace the cord then get some same size rivets and a rivet gun and replace the housing riveting it back on. Make sure the housing goes back on the same way it came out.

Sheared off alternator pivot bolt while changing alternator please help!


If bolt does not thread into engine block or head
What you will need:
Penetrating oil (auto center---pepboys, advanced auto, parts plus ect)
Screw gun example (home center)
cordless drill
corded screw gun
something with a clutch
5/32 or a 1/4" self tapping hex head screw by 3/4" long
a driver for #12 hex head(I can't remember if it's 3/16", or 1/4" or 1/4" or 5/16"
1/4"90 degress offset for screw gun(usally aroung $8.00 (home center)
Channel locks or really goood pliers (home center)



This may work, and cheapest solution. Get some spray penetrating oil. Spray what's lest of bolt on both sides. Tap what is left of bolt, making sure you don't hit what's left of the threads, or causing it to peane over.
repeat this a few times.
After oil has penetrated, on sheared side start running the screw in
This is where you use the offset for the screwgun and the channel locks to hold the offset in the right position.Once the screw seats it's self, with luck, it should act like it's driving the sheered bolt deeper. Once you see more of the end of bolt comming out, stop, use channel locks to finish removing.


If this fails or bolt is in head or block
More penetrating oil
1/4" ezeout with right numbered drill bit
90 degrees drill chuck
Tap handle (for ezeout)
Center punch
1/8" drill bit

Use center punch to put a divit in center of broken bolt
Use 1'8" bit to drill pilot hole, no mre than 3/8" deep( measure from tip of bit up to 3/8" put a peice of tape around bit)
Use the numbered bit for eze out, drilling no deeper than 3/8"
Use easy out with tap handle.
Note!
do not use "auto center's bolt extractors, they are garbage. Go to an industrial suppy or industrial hardware house

I have a Yerf-dog 3203 go-kart with a 6.5 HP Tecumseh engine. It's a pull start, and the pull cord broke. I can't get the cover off to fix the pull because the cover doesn't have screws. It has metal flat...


they are rivets, you will need a drill, the bit should be just big enough to fit the pin, once you start to drill it will come off. You can put screws back in once the repair is made. Good Luck Tim
