General rewind procedures for most engines. Remove the starter cover and place it on your workbench with the plastic rewind spool visible and remove the old rope noting how it was tied. The rope is sold in various sizes from # 3 to # 6.5. Most gens use a #5.5, with length of about 6 to 7 feet. You may not need this much but more is better. Now practice inserting the rope thru the hole where it comes out of the cover into the hole where it ties on the spool. Once you can do this you are ready to wind. The spool /spring winds when you pull the rope, that why it recoils when you let go of the rope. With that in mind, turn (wind) the spool in the same direction that it turns when you pull the rope. It should be getting tighter as you turn. Keep winding in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope untill it will not go anymore. It should be very tight. Now unwind one complete turn and align the hole of the spool to the hole in the housing and hold it there while you insert the rope from outside hole into the spool and tie knot. After the knot is tied slowly let rope rewind into the spool untill it stops on its own. You are done. You should have plenty of extra rope left to extend out and tie pull handle. Good luck

I have a UST 5500 generator the cage around the pull starter is cracked looking for new cage


What your looking for is called a recoil assy. Any local lawn mower repair shop should be able to help you locate a new one. Some of these units have a Chinese 11 HP / 418cc OHV engine model ZJ188FPH on them so you will probably have to walk into the shop with the part in hand to find an exact match. They may also repair yours.

5500 gas generator


Recently purchased UST 5500 from Pep Boys. Had same problem during engine break in period. Found that the carb will not draw gas when generator is on level surface. Mine has the wheel kit and it causes the fuel inlet to be at highest point in tank. If you block up the wheels and change the angle of the tank it will improve fuel line pickup. Also check gap on plug, mine was way off from factory. Also check the routing of the spark plug wire and make sure it is not getting forced off the plug by tension from breather hose. Once the engine starts make sure to push choke back in, it will run for a good while choked but it will eventually shut off if you don't push choke back in. Hope this helps. Took me awhile to discover the fuel feed issue.
