Remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter through. If it now pulls through easily, the cylinder head may be full of old fuel. Pull it through a number of times to expel the old fuel, then replace the plug and try for normal start. If still hard to pull, the engine may have been run on straight gasoline instead of oil/fuel mix. If so, the piston, ring(s), and cylinder may have been severely scored which then require replacement. At this point, consider the cost of a new saw versus repair costs running over $100 if you farm out the work. Hope this helps!

How do i replace pull cord on mtd 31cc tiller


Remove your recoil housing. Turn the inside to see if spring is broken. If spring is good wind it up as tight as it will go without forcing it. Once you have it wound all the way then back it off one turn or until the eyelet meets where the rope comes out. tie a knot in one end and feed through both holes. Pull the rope through till the knot is tight then attatch your handle. Once the handle is in place slowly let the rope wind itself in. pull a few times to make sure your knot is holding and reinstall on engine

Installing a spring in an MS240 Stihl chain saw


I have not worked on you type saw. I have put new starter springs in other saws. One end of the spring fits into the housing and the other in the pulley. Once you have that done there should be a notch in the pulley that you put the rope into that will allow the spring to be wound up without taking up the rope. It is a trial error problem now. If the spring is wound too tight you will not get full rope travel. If it is too loose tilt will not pull the rope in fully.

Starter rope hard to pull. It's not smooth and takes a lot of effort.


Make sure the brake is off and retest. If brake is off and still difficult to pull, remove the side cover, chain, bar and retest. If still not right (remove sparkplug), remove the muffler and make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean and verify that the cylinder and piston look clean and smooth by looking into port. You can clean the cylinder by spraying wd40 and pulling the rope untill it all comes back out. Verify that the rope pulls smoothly before you reinstall the spark plug. If all looks good, reinstall muffler and retest. If the compression is normal, it should be rather hard to pull thru the compression stroke. Reinstall bar and chain for final test.

This saw looks new but it been in storage for years and the rope is realy tight it beraly turns once and its hard what can i do to get it to start its a mac 110 z62.1 class 1c


If your having problem turning the engine through ... remvoe the spark plug and use regular oil in the cylinder. Tilt it so that the plug hole is straight up and pour about 1 ounce of oil in the cylinder. Then pull it through with the starting rope. I would do this several times until the cylinder appear to free up. You have corrosion on the cylinder walls. The oil will help the piston and rings scrape off that corrosion. After the oil then use mixed gas in the spark plug hole and pull it through again. Make sure the gas is purged then attempt a regular start. If it has been is storage for a long time you may have to change the diaphram in the carb as they dry out and get holes in them / crack after being cycled with new fuel. Good Luck.

Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Rewind sticks


Was the saw dropped on it's left side? Remove the entire starter housing and look for bent metal parts. Does the cord operate normally when off of the saw? Unless the housing was crushed, usually you can bend some of the internal metal parts to get the spool to turn freely. Hope this helps!

Broken Pull String


Yes, it is possible that the spring needs to be pre-tensioned. its also possible that something was put together a little out of alignment, or some part is too tight and its too hard for the spring to wind in the chord. try to reassemble the chainsaw with a couple more turns on the spring and see if that helps.
