    It is a Plulan-Pro 25 cc high preformance engine

  • j_vandergrif Sep 04, 2010

    I have gotten it to the point of removing the plastic housing but I can not remove the clutch wheel.

  • j_vandergrif Sep 04, 2010

    Never mind. I have figured it out for myself. I realized that a small "star" screw held the clutch "fly wheel" on. Please do not bill me for this service since you did not help me.

  • j_vandergrif Sep 04, 2010

    The schematic and parts list is for a Chain Saw Model 330, not the Lawn Trimmer Edger. Please do not bill me for this service. I will challenge the charge if it appears on my next Visa bill.

The side cases of these units depending on your make and model usually have 4 to 8 screws that hold the case together. looking at the pull starter then moving out you will notice the screw holes. the screws are usually inset down in a hole. remove these screws on the side or top of your unit depending where the pull cord is located. the casing that holds the pull cord should pull away from the case pretty easiely once the screws are all removed. when you take the old pull cord off pay close attention to the position of the notted end. the new one will have to look the same. the rope replacement is pretty simple and you shouldnt have any problem winding it back on. these units usually have direction arrows to insure they get wound back on the right way. if you have anyt difficulty getting the case abck in place pull the cord out just a bit the clutch assembly(pull cord) has to line up to the slots on the flywheel.

Tip

How to fix a recoil rope starter on lawn and garden equipment.


This tip is to help you if your power equipment starter rope broke and needs to be replaced. <br /> Step One: Prepare the equipment to be worked on by disconnecting the spark plug wire from the spark plug. This will prevent accidental startups while working on the engine. <br /> Make sure safety systems are in place. If this is a ride on unit make sure the brake is set and the battery is disconnected. <br /> Step Two: Remove the Starter housing or blower housing. The starter itself will have at least three fastening points and may vary in shape depending on the machine. It is not recommended to remove any rivets if you come across them. Most machines with rivets are part of a larger housing that needs to be removed. <br /> Step Three: Remove the leftover rope and inspect the starter spring. Once off of the machine you can remove any old rope and test the spring. the spring test is to spin or charge the spring as if the rope was being pulled out. As long as tension builds up in the spring you are ready to put a new rope in. If the spring does not build tension order a new spring from a dealer like www.arcolawn.com <br /> Step Four: Charge the spring and install the rope. Charge the spring as mentioned above by rotating it as if the rope was being pulled. Once tight back the spring off one turn and put the rope into the starter through the housing and into the pulley. Tie a knot on either end ot the rope and then slowly let the rope into the starter (make sure the grip is between the two knots). <br /> Step Five: Reinstall the starter housing on the machine and test. <br /> I hope this helps.

How to replace starter rope in lawn mower


First assemble the following: Pliers, large vice grips, 'c' clamp or a bench mounted vise and new rope. Remove therecoil housing from top of engine. Turn it over, find the end of the broken rope and on pull it until it is fully extended but do not remove yet. While holding the rope extended place clamp device on the rope housing clamping the spool and housing. Be careful not to put too much pressure on the housing, just enough to hold the two pieces. Carefully remove old rope and thread the new rope through the small hole in the housing and into the slot in the pulley. Tie that end of rope into a knot to prevent rope from coming out. While holding other end of rope, carefully remove the clamp from the housing and slowly let the rope rewind into the housing. Replace rope housing onto top of motor.

How to replace starter rope on 1993 polaris indy 500


Good luck! This model usually requires the muffler being removed,the right side of the engine disassembled.... A hint! do not remove the recoil spring unless it is broke. Turn the rope pulley clockwise about 6 times alaign the rope hole in the pulley and the starter housing , push the rope through, it helps to melt the rope ends.after the new knot is tied and pulled tight,gently release the pulley.

My wiper sniper pull cord is broken, how do u change the pull cord?


Hi vanzedo, I will try to help you out. Because you don't specify the brand and model I will try to give you the Weed Eater brand that is manufactured by Poulan because it is the best known in my area and I hope it is well known in your area, but it is pretty well the same procedure for other brands.
To disassemble starter, detach starter housing from engine. Remove rope handle and allow rope to wind into starter. Unscrew pulley retainer or pulley retainer screw and remove rope pulley. Wear appropriate safety eye wear and gloves before detaching rewind spring from housing as spring may uncoil uncontrolled. Try to prevent spring from unwinding if possible, I use a flat piece of metal stiff enough not to bend, about 1" wide or less and try to put it between the spring and pulley, if I have the room to do it and prevent spring from uncoiling as it is quite a job to put it back in. (good luck with that one).
To assemble starter, lubricate center post of housing and spring side with light grease. Install rewind spring so coil windings are counterclockwise from outer end. Install proper size and length of rope. Assemble starter while passing rope through housing rope outlet and attach rope handle to rope. To place tension on starter rope, pull rope out of housing. Engage rope in notch on pulley and turn pulley counterclockwise to place tension on rewind spring. Hold pulley and disengage rope from pulley notch. Release pulley and allow rope to wind on pulley. Check starter operation. Rope handle should be held against housing by spring tension, but it must be possible to rotate pulley at least an additional 1/4 turn when rope is pulled out fully.
I hope this is helpful to you even if a little bit. Regards and good luck. Denis.

Need to relace starter rope


1
Remove the cover from the side of the blower that contains the pull start. This usually involves removing the self-tapping screws that join the two halves of the blower housing together.


  • 2
  • Remove the broken rope from the starter pulley. Usually the rope is attached to the pulley with a simple overhand knot; just grab the knot and pull the rope back through the hole in the pulley. Sometimes the rope is attached to the pulley with a staple or some other fastener, which you'll have to remove first.
  • 3 Remove the handle from the replacement rope, if it's already attached.
  • 4 Thread the end of the rope opposite the handle through the hole in the starter pulley, working from the inside of the pulley (the side facing in toward the engine).
  • 5 Fasten the rope to the pulley. If it attaches with a knot, simply tie an overhand knot, pull it tight and trim off any excess rope sticking out of the knot. If it attaches with a fastener, replace the fastener.
  • 6 Wrap the rope counterclockwise around the pulley until the pulley is full; this usually involves one or two wraps.
  • 7 Thread the free end of the rope through the hole in the blower housing.
  • 8 Replace the blower housing and screw it in place.
  • 9 Trim off excess rope, leaving about 6 inches of rope protruding from the blower housing.
  • 10 Attach the handle to the starter rope. This typically involves threading the rope through one or two holes in the handle and securing with an overhand knot.

    Starter rope will not retract


    Either you have a broken rewind spring, or the starter mechanism is dirty to the point where the force of the recoil spring is not sufficient to pull the rope back in.
    WEAR SAFETY GLASSES while disassembling your starter mechanism to see what the problem is. Upon reassembly, it is a good idea to lube the post in the starter housing (the one the pulley slides over) with some graphite or teflon lube.

    Starter cord will not rewind after being replaced. The string will rewind in the housing before it is attached to the motor but not after being attached. How do you pre wind the springs?


    What I do is the following:

    Remove the old rope ( what is left of it)

    Wind the starter rope pulley about 8 or 9 complete revolutions after I am confident that the spring has engaged the starter pulley

    Hold the pulley in place ( align the rope hole in the pulley with hole in the starter housing

    Insert the rope and tie a knot, pull the rope back tight against the pulley

    Pull the rope all the way out and hold slight tension on the rope and release the tension on the pulley but still holding the starter housing

    Starter spring should pull rope into housing... good luck

    Poulan starter rope


    to fix starter rope first you must wind spring and place back in housing. just grab spring by middle and wind ,you will have to get it smaller than housing hole. One end should hook to a tab at housing rest of it sets inside itself. once set in housing dont let go, insert rope housing over top & screw in. rope housing should have some return spring to it when pulled. if rope is not tight on return pull simply add one winding to spool. hope it helps!
