If it turns very freely then it can be a stuck opened valve as well check for spark by removing the plug and wile still with the wire plugged in ground against the case wear gloves or use insulated pliers crank the engine look for a spark have the kill switch turned to the run setting in so then check the gas make sure the carb is getting gas if been sitting it may need to be cleaned do to old gas shalac or stuck if there is no spark you may have a bad coil or a kill wire grounding out witch will not allow a spark remove the front pull starter cover to expose the flywheel and check the wires for shorting or a bare one tape or wire crimp for a repair older engines had a points there under the fly wheel and then it will have to be removed for servicing you can check for compression as well by pluging spark plug hole with finger just cover it and crank it should blow your finger off the hole and make a load air wish sound if not you have ether a hole in piston or bad or stuck valve if all this is ok you might have a low oil sensor that's bad check oil and fill as needed if low if good then it should be a 1 wire sensor remove the wire and crank see if there is a spark if there is then that unit needs replacing you can run the engine with out that low oil sensor but you must check it often and tape up the wire so it is not grounding out hope this helps

Pull cord is tangled

Unusual, but it does happen. Probably should replace cord. Obtain new cord, can be found at almost any hardware store, then remove top engine cover (cowl), usually held on by 4 bolts,two in front and two in back.If your mower has a plastic cover on top of cowl, remove it first. Remove old cord by holding wheel (looks kind of like a pulley) so that it does not spin freely once old cord is cut. Cut cord anywhere outside of the housing as close to the housing as possible. Carefully release the wheel so that it can unwind. You will see where the old cord is tied to the wheel. use needle nose pliers and grab hold of the knot and pull old cord out. Now for the fun part. You need to "rewind" the spring by turning the wheel clockwise while looking at the inside of the housing. Once you have turned the wheel to a point where you might break the spring, back off one turn to be sure you have not over wound the spring. Usually, about 5 or 6 turns of the wheel clockwise is enough, use your own judgment. The tighter you can get the spring, the better the recoil will be when you let loose the cord when starting engine. You need to line up the hole in the wheel to the hole in the cowl as close as possible. Use a screwdriver or some other small sturdy object to "lock" wheel in place for next step. There is plenty of openings through the cowl in which you can lock the wheel to keep it stationary while attaching the new cord and to keep the holes lined up as close a possible. It can be difficult to "fish" the new cord from the outside of the housing and into the holes through which you need to pull the new cord through. I have found that if you take a flame to melt the end of the cord so that it will not unravel makes it easier and if you can bear the heat, while the cord is soft from the heat, twist cord in a spiral shape. This will make "fishing" much easier.Once accomplished, tie a knot as close to the end of the cord as possible and pull line back towards the outside with a little strength to "seat" the knot. Remove screwdriver and let the tension of the spring rewind the new cord into the housing. If the spring completely unwinds then pull on the cord from the outside so the wheel turns at a minimum of on turn so there is always tension on the new cord. Route the new cord through the eye on the mower handle then install pull knob. Pull excess line through pull knob, tie knot, then cut off excess cord. Should be ready to go.

Have a roaring in the front end. starts at 25 mph . gets louder the faster you go. changes sound if you turn stearing wheel side to side.

That is the classic sign of a bad wheel bearing. Put the front of the car on jack stands and push-pull on the wheel. Which ever one moves or clunks has the bad wheel bearing. You can also try pushing/pulling from the top and bottom if you can't get movement pushing/pulling in and out.

How to put a new pull rope on it How do I put a new pull rope on

It realy depends on what model we are talking about, so i will give a general disciption, remove the four screws retaining the starter to the saw, remove the starter, if the cord is still under tention, pull the starter handle out approx 8", whilst held out hold the pulley to stop it retracting, let go the starter handle and unwind the now lose cord from around the pulley, once enough cord has been unwound let the pulley slowly turn until all the spring tention has gone, remove the center fixing screw, and remove the pulley, pull the old cord away, refit a new suitable diameter cord, knot the end and pull the cord into the pulley so as the knot sits flush into the hole in the pulley, wind the cord fully around the pulley,now refit the pulley to the cover, refit the centre screw ,push the other end of the cord through the cover eyelet and refit the starter handle with a suitable knot, now wind the cord around the pulley a further two times by turning the pulley and winding up the spring, allow the spring to pull the cord in, if required wind the pulley a further turn until the cord is suitably tentioned in the cover, replace the cover on the machine, pull the cord out to make sure it has engaged fully into the pawls before fully tightening the fixing screws.

Pull cord is stuck

Take off your cover to the pull cord, the cord probably just got wrapped around the pulley. If you run into trouble with taking off this cover go to they will walk you through the process off pull cord removal and installation. Good Luck PAL.

2003 chevy suburban 1500 i replace my tensioner pulley and belt for my a/c compressor and now my tensioner is rocking back and forth and the truck idels hard when the a/c or heat is on

The tensioner is not set or aligned properly.
Rocked back and forth  this means the pivot bushing has worn down.
Tensioner Arm Misalignment
This may appear as metal-to-metal contact between
the arm and spring housing, and will be indicated by
shiny, smooth streaks or gouges in the metal.
Misalignment also is likely if the arm can be vertically
rocked back and forth. This means the pivot
bushing has worn down.
Idler Bearing Wear
With the engine off and the belt removed, manually
rotate the tensioner pulley. Noise or resistance
when turning the pulley could indicate bearing
failure. Check for play in the bearing by rocking the
pulley. It should only pitch very slightly. If noise,
resistance or excessive play is found, replace the
Excessive Tensioner Arm Movement
With the engine running, observe the back and forth
sway of the tensioner arm. If it exceeds 1/2” of
movement, or moves continually, the damping
system has failed. This movement can reduce the
life of the tensioner, belt and component bearings.
The tensioner should be replaced.
Improper Belt Tracking
With the engine running, inspect the belt and tensioner pulley. If the belt
is not properly tracking in the center of the pulley, the tensioner could be misaligned. This also can be a sign of a bent bracket or misaligned components. Check the drive components and repair if necessary.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Replace pull cord Big Wheeled weed EaterString

First, remove the recoil assembly but dont disassemble!
You'll need about 3 1/2 ft. of the same size rope. Tie a knot into one end of the rope. While holding the pulley in place observe the direction the pulley moves when rope is pulled. Release pulley and cut and remove old rope. Continue winding pulley in direction rope would pull it. Do no wind too tight. Line up holes in recoil housing and pulley then push rope through pulley and out housing. Tie on handle and install recall in reverse order.
