How do I get a powermate 8hp brigs and Stratton generator to idle. I bought it and it wouldn't start. I cleaned the carb and it started on 1st pull, now it won't idle it run wide open all the time.

You have jet clogged, or still some obstruction in the carb. Hopefully you have a good inline filter .I'd take it back apart all the Jets and seats & Chem soak or a cheap complete rebuild.

The pull cord is locked, can only pull out 5 inches....why?

Could be motor locked up or cord caught in the rewinding mechanism. Remove top engine cover and see if cord pulls now. If not then in winder. If it does see if you can turn the motor over by hand with cover off. If not maybe engine locked up. Did the engine run low on oil? if so when motor cooled, things may have locked up. Try removing spark plug, and light oil to cylinder and let soak.Turn engine with wrench.

Briggs/stratton how do I get cover off of pull rope. looks like it's rivited on

you have to drill the rivets out. If you're changing\rewinding the rope, you have to do it from the backside.Respringing it you'll have to change the whole thing, which is easier anyway. your local briggs dealer can order one for you, and after you drill the rivets out, the new one will come with little bolts and nuts.
