Replacing starter pull cord on 77 20hp mercury


Remove the starter housing from the top of the motor and see if the spring broke or back wound it's self when the rope broke. If all is well remove the rest of the rope from the spool by feeding it back thru the guide hole the handle rests on. Wind it out and find a hole drilled thru the spool and put a punch thru it to lock the spool in place against the spring pressure. Remove the old cord. If it has a steel hook glued to the anchor end you will need a real mercury part. If it has a knot. your in luck.

Take your new cord and burn one end and roll the cord to a point while it is still molten. Tie your knot and heat it till it is cooked so it won't untie itself. Feed the pointy end thru the spool and out the front of the housing. Tie a knot it it where the handle would go. Gently feed the rope on to the spool when you remove the punch.

You will have more rope than the spring could wind. so untie the end knot and feed it back to the spool and put the cord in the notch of the spool so it won't rub on the housing and wind a few more turns into the spring .

When it has enough pressure to completely wind the cord up. put the punch back in the lock hole and feed the cord out the hole thru the handle and knot it, then cook that knot as well.

Starter cord jammed on my mcculloch cabrio 433l strimmer, only pulling a few inches


First remove the spark plug and see if the starter can be pulled without the plug in place. If it cannot, any job that involves a recoil starter is a messy frustrating job, and if you had to put a price on the hassle that it is, it is probably better to pay somebody else to do it. That said, remove the starter cover with the cord and pulley inside. If there is a plate holding down the cord pulley, remove it and carefully lift out the pulley, try not to dislodge the recoil spring as this is where the frustration part comes in. Check the cord is not off the pulley or is frayed and caught on something. See if the starter will operate when it is removed from the motor.
If you need to renew the cord, insert the new cord end into the hole and copy the old knot - pass the other end of the cord through the eyelet in the cover. N.B. At this time take note of the direction that the recoil spring coil is orientated. Wind about 3/4 of the cord around the pulley and attach the start handle to the outside end of the cord. Carefully fit the pulley over the spring and place the cord into the cutout in the pulley. Wind up the pulley so that it engages in the curl in the inside of the recoil spring and further wind up the pulley in the opposite direction of the normal pulley start pull, holding the cord in the little cut-out so that the cord does not wind up as you wind the spring. It probably takes about 5 extra turns on the pulley to get the recoil tension right. Always hold the pulley in place to prevent the spring from jumping out. Release the cord so it can retract and replace the retaining plate. This is all if the spring does not jump out - which it so often does.
If the spring jumps out, hold it by the inside portion and start winding it up, pulling it tight to keep the coil small enough to fit back into its receptacle, . Once the spring is wound up and will fit into its position the problem starts. I found that gripping the spring with an alligator jaw vice grip will allow you to replace the spring and carefully release it without it going wild again, engaging the outer hook in its retaining slot or around its peg. Trying to feed the spring into position coil by coil seldom works, it has to be wound up outside and then inserted, especially on a small motor.
This procedure is as difficult to explain as it is to carry out. I have done many cord replacements and always dread the next one. If you have any problems, feel free to come back to me.

How do I replace the pull start?


Remove the four screws securing the starter houseing, with the starter removed, pull the cord out, tuck the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley and allow the cord to wind in slowley to let the tention off the spring, make sure all the tention has gone, now remove the centre screw, take away the pulley centre and the round spring from behind, note the hole in the pulley and the centre hub for the spring location, now carefully remove the pulley, be aware there is a large spring behind, remove the knot in the end and remove the starter handle, fit the cord back into the new pulley, refit the pulley into the cover making sure to locate into the spring behind, thread the cord back through the cover and reconnect the handle, knot the cord, re fit the round spring back into the locating hole in the pulley, re fit the pulley hub making sure the spring fits into the hole in the hub, re fit the securing screw, now put the cord back into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, wind up the spring, allow it to pull the cord back into the starter, only wind it enough to pull the cord fully back into the cover, re fit the starter.

I pulled the pull cord right out of it s hole. So I unscrewed all of the screws to fix it but i cant unscrewed the fans screw ????


There should be no need to remove the flywheel (fans?) to repair the starter cord. The starter mechanism should have come free of the left side housing so that everything you need to deal with is in that package. Did the cord break, or just pulled the cord free of the spool inside? If the cord broke, then buy a replacement cord (about 1-meter in length) of the same size and material (no cotton cord). Thread the cord into the spool center where there is a hole for the inside part of the cord and bring the end out of the hole. Melt the cord end, and then tie an overhand knot in the cord. Pull the knot back tight and proceed to wind the cord in a CCW direction around the spool until you have about most of it wound. Pull on the cord to wind the internal spring several turns and wedge the spool so that it won't unwind the spring. Wind the balance of the cord until you have about 8" left--feed that end through the outer hole and into the handle. Melt the cord end, then tie an overhand knot in it. Stuff the knot into the handle cavity and remove the spool wedge. Try the cord several times to make sure the spring pulls it back firmly and allows ample cord pull-out. Hope this helps!

How to repair the pull starter for the WEED EATER Power edge PE5 50 - 22 cc engine the rope pulled out"


NOT SURE IF YOUR STARTER IS PART OF THE COVER BUT IF IT IS IT CAN BE A BIT TRICKY AS SOME MACHINES YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE STARTER WHEEL TO GAIN ACCESS TO REMOVE WHAT IS LEFT OF THE OLD CORD AND THEN FEED ANOTHER CORD THROUGH THE HOLE. UNDER THE STARTER WHEEL YOU SHOULD HAVE A LARGE COILED SPRING WITH A CIRCULAR HOOK POSSIBLY ON THE END WHICH HAS TO ENGAGE TOO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE WHEEL, ONCE THAT IS DONE YOU HAVE TO PULL THE ROPE INTO A NOTCH ON THE WHEEL BEFORE YOU WIND IT AROUND THE WHEEL, TURN THE WHEEL IN THE DIRECTION THAT THE COILED SPRING END WAS POINTING UNTIL IT STOPS, BACK IT OFF 1 TURN FEED THE END OF THE CORD THROUGH THE HOLE IN THE BODY OF THE COVER AND PUT A LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE HOLE TO STOP THE CORD FROM WINDING IN, THEN PUT THE RUBBER PULL END ON THE CORD AND TIE A KNOT IN THE CORD BEHIND THE RUBBER PULLER TO STOP THE CORD FROM PULLING BACK THROUGH THE HOLE.
rELEASE THE LOOP IN THE CORD NEAR THE COVER HOLE THAT YOU PUT IN AND LET THE SPRING WIND THE CORD BACK IN TO THE STARTER WHEEL
