I have worked on generators and lawn equipment for many years. This one is a stumper as far as locating the recoil & shroud assy. I am assuming that yours has been severly damaged. If it is just a starter rope / recoil spring problem the rope itself can be replaced at any lawnmower shop. I am not in this for the money I am only trying to help. Maybe if you could find an engine model number I might be able to find you a recoil / shroud assy. It is a 63 cc 2 stroke engine and I just spent the better part of an hour trying to help you mainly to satisfy my own professional interest in just were to find one of these recoil / shroud assys. (Just reject this answer) I came up empty handed. If I do find a source I will post it for you.

How can I replace starter pull cord?

Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".

How do i replace a starter on a 2005 harley 1200 sportster

Disconnect the battery and then the wires on the charger. Drain the transmission (left cover). After that, you can remove the shift lever connection and the clutch cover. Disconnect the clutch cable from the clutch assembly. Now you can remove your complete primary cover. After all that you will want to remove the two screws that hold the starter to the engine. Then simply put everything back in the reverser order using all new gaskets and seals and fill the transmission back up w/the proper amount and weight of oil.

I have to tap the starter in order for car to start

The starter solenoid (an integral sub-assembly of the starter motor) is failing and will get worse. The only fix is to replace your starter motor assembly.

Sometimes the solenoid can be dismantled and overhauled on a DIY basis, but the repair rarely lasts and the attached starter motor is usually almost on its last legs by then anyway. You can save a huge amount of money by getting a remanufactured exchange complete starter unit. You either hand over your old unit when buying the exchange model or pay a refundable deposit against the return of your old one.

I hope that I've been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my reply.

Where is the starter located on the metro

Four types of starter motor are utilized depending upon the vehicle transaxle and assembly plant location. Manual transaxle equipped vehicles utilize a conventional starter motor which consists of a yoke, an armature assembly, an overrunning clutch assembly, a solenoid, a commutator end cover, a brush holder and a pinion drive lever. Automatic transaxle equipped vehicles utilize a reduction type starter motor which has, in addition to the components found on conventional starter motors, a reduction gear and shock absorber assembly.


Fig. 3: Starter motor assembly

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Label and disconnect the starter solenoid electrical connector.
  4. Remove the mounting bolts from the starter motor, then carefully lower the assembly from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Install the starter motor assembly complete with any shims that may be used between the engine block and the starter.
  2. Install and tighten the starter mounting bolts to 17 ft. lbs.. (23 Nm).
  3. Connect the starter solenoid electrical connector.
  4. Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable.

Hope helps.

No start

The starter button on a Honda does two things. When pushed in half way it turns off the headlight so there is more juice for the starter, then when pushed in the rest of the way it engages the solenoid going to the starter. It's pretty obvious that you need a right switch assembly. Or a good starter button removed from another switch assembly. Honda only sells the button as part of the complete switch assembly. Sometimes you can take a switch apart and clean the button contacts(I have done this) But you must work carefully so you dont damage or lose pieces.Sometimes the only option is to buy a different switch.Good Luck.

Can only the solenoid be replaced on the starter of my 1994 town car? thanks, grady cooper.

The solenoid is mounted on the starter assembly and if you really wanted you could disassemble it and replace just the solenoid. It will be easier, however slightly more expensive, to replace the assembly. Also keep in mind the assembly is readily available but the solenoid may have to be ordered.

How do I replace starter on 2000 sportster

You must remove the primary to reach 2 bolts holding in the starter. This is a pretty big job, first completely loosen the clutch cable, remove the derby cover, disconnect clutch cable, remove inspection cover, drain primary fluid, loosen primary chain tension er, remove shifter linkage, remove primary cover ( use a Styrofoam board to place bolts in order due to different lenghts), remove ramp and ball assembly ( need snap ring plyers), using a tool to lock the clutch basket and primary drive remove bolts( I don't remember which but one removes left hand), you now can reach the bolts holding in the starter. As I stated this is a pretty big job and you should have a manuel before starting, if you don't want to buy one you can check one out at most library's. Reverse to install and remember LOCK TITE everything.
