Unbolt the recoil and see if it will pull then. if it does remove the spark plug and grab the blade see if you can turn the engine over by hand

How do I put a new pull rope on my 5hp MTD Chipper?


pull the starter cover pull rope out to length lock the housing the rope is in, in place with a tool pull out rope. reinsert new rope into retaining hoe tie a not and cut off excess rope. put ropr through handle hole reattach handle and remove tool you used to hold the rope housing. This is if your spring and starter assembly are ok. Or you could stop being a cheap and let a shop do it for 5 minutes labor.

How do i fix the pull start and re tension it so cord retracts?


You take the top of the motor off with the starter, then rewind the spring,then is a good idea to replace the rope with a new one they sell rope at a lawnmower store, get 5 feet or more if the rope is up on the handle, take a piece of rope with you to get the correct size.

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.

It won't start. The pull chord won't pull out. Even a little. It was out at one time, in the loop on the mower handle, but I had to let it go into the motor and now it won't come out.


You will probably have to disassemble the rewind assembly and either replace the rope and/or straighten out the cord and properly reconnect it to the flywheel connection. Kits usually are available at the Sears parts store or lawn and garden centers that handle lawn mowers everywhere.

Pull rope broke. attached back but cant figure out how to make the rope recall work


The recoil spring has to be pre-loaded about 5 turns, even when the rope is fully returned. When you pull out the rope, you increase this tension, but if you are starting from zero, there won't be enough spring tension to fully recoil the rope. Wind the rope on the spool, then rotate the spool about 5 turns in the direction that would "push" the rope out through the hole. Now put the rope through the hole and put the handle on it. If you got the tension right, it should be sufficient to easily hold the handle up against the hole.

Replacing start rope of the b&s model # 120600


Take off the three-four bolts holding on the starter cover and lift it off the engine. Make sure you dont leave the oil dipper attached too.
Remove its bolt at the cover so it doesnt come out of the engine block and make a mess.

Flip the cover over and you should see the pulley the rope rides in. Pull out the broken end piece of the rope from the inside-center of this pulley. Get a new piece of rope from a power equipment store. Make sure you get enough to cover the length needed to make it all the way out to the handle! Snake into the recoil cover from the outside hole into the pulley *(you align the pulley with the hole in the cover) with small needle nose pliers you can pick the rope through the pulley hole and then tie a knot to secure this end of things. A butane lighter is good to use on the frayed end to "melt lock" it. Nothing crazy now...just melt the tip where you see the frayed material.

Then put the t handle on the other end and tie it off too. Also melt the frayed end before pulling the rope into the t handle.

Now that the rope is in place all you need to do is prewind the pulley. This is done by using a small section of the rope near the pulley to turn it in the direction of starting about 6-8 turns and then carefully release the pulley so it winds the rope onto it. You can do this slowly by keeping tension on the T handle and slowly walking it into the starter cover. Be careful. You dont want to get your fingers caught on anything spinning or pulling here. The rope will be twisted so the person holding tension on the rope can help by untwisting the rope so it can rewind smoothly.

That is about it. You can then pull the rope a few times to make sure you put enough prewind on it so the rope doesnt stop pulling even though you have more rope to pull *(this is to prevent causing the recoil spring binding from insufficient prewinding)

Put the recoil cover back on. Put the t handle back into the fixture on the mower handle. Thats it! Start her up and go cut some grass!

Good luck and be careful!

Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.


Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps
