Generic version of your starter is most likely available from small engine shop. Look for model and type of engine itself. Briggs stratton, honda, etc. model number if engine is usually on starter cover or stamped on block or tag attached. If the recoil part is riveted to housing you may need to either re-rivet or use screws to attach new rewind. Used parts are also available at small engine shops. Just take in the starter housing only for match-up. Good luck

There is a pawl that engages the recoil starter with the power take off end of the engine. It is probably sticking. If you remove the recoil starter and pull the cord you should see the pawl swing out, then retract when the cord is released. If you take it apart clean out all the gummy grit and give sliding parts a coat of lubriplate which is a light, waterproof lubricant you can purchase in a small tube just about anywhere.

Starter cord replacement


Here are the basic steps:
Prepair the new starter rope (about 5 feet of good qualty starter rope size 5.5) by burning the end and shaping into a point and tie a temp knot on the other end. Use a rag to shape the end because it will be very hot. Remove the old rope and align the hole in the spool with the hole on the starter cover and practice incerting the rope thru the guide hole on the cover into hole on the spool . This will be the final action after you wind the spool. You should be able to hold the spool and insert the rope thru both holes and tie a knot while holding the spool in a wound state. Once you have mastered incerting the rope thru both holes and tying a knot you are ready. Now begin.
Wind the spool in the same direction that the spool turns when you pull the rope. You must wind in the correct direction or you may bend the spring out of shape. The spool will begin to tighten as you wind and will eventually stop turning when the spring is fully wound. Once fully wound unwind spool one full turn and stop when hole on spool aligns with hole in cover. Now insert rope as practiced thru both holes and tie knot with free hand or have helping hand. Once knot is tied slowly let spool take rope in untill no more will go in or you reach temp knot. Now tie pull handle and you are done. Good luck.

My lawnmower starter pull rope broke and i wanted to replace it myself to the something i can do myself. It is a craftsman 7.0 horsepower push lawn mower. Any body with step by step instructions and what...


The biggest thing you need is time. There are no special tools required but it sure helps of there are 2 people available to perform this task.

You will have to remove the recoil assy if it can be removed without the air shroud or the entire upper engine cover / air shroud with the recoil. This procedure should be performed by 2 people that are NOT distracted.

First you will have to have a replacement rope. Burn the end of the new rope your going to install into the spool and pinch it so that the end is smaller than the rope and pointed. Install the pull handle on the new rope and make sure there is a good single knot on the end of the rope that goes into the pull handle.

Next you will have to remove all pieces of the old starter rope.

Then you have to pre-wind the spring of the recoil so that if you were to allow it to turn, it would turn in a direction that would pull the starter rope onto the recoil spool.

NOTE: Once the pre-wind is done if anyone lets go of the spool it can DAMAGE the recoil spring!

When your prewinding... Turn the spool until snugs and does not want to move anymore. Then back off the spool until the rope KNOT hole is aligned with the recoil rope guide.
Thread the new rope through recoil rope guide and into the KNOT hole in the spool. (Ice pick scribe jewlers screwdriver... will be required to pull the new rope up and out through the knot hole. Then TIE a KNOT in the bitter end of the rope and pull the knot into the knot hole on the spool.
FINALLY have 2nd person release the spool and it will rewind onto the spool.

Install the recoil / air shroud.

Thanks for using FixYa.
