This PN has been superceded to PN 20163031 and is the same as used on a DOLMAR chainsaw.

This is a US source:

These dimensions are what your looking for:
Diameter 2 11/16" [68 mm]
Width 1/4" [6 mm]

Most small engine repair shops that are good at what they do can modify an OEM spring to work on your chain saw if you can not find one. I have done it but a modified spring will not last as long as the correct one. Over time the modified end breaks because of the heat introduced to initially modify the pulley end of the spring. I.e you will get any where from 50 - 70 % of the normal usage life on a modified spring.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Howdy Geoff,
There are basically 2 basic types of spool heads that are wound. This link will walk you through both types. Once you've successfully wound it once, it's not too difficult. http://community.homedepot.com/t5/What-s-New-in-our-Garden-Aisles/Replacement-String-Trimmer-Head/m-p/151/highlight/true#M4

Broken pullcord . cord is missing how long should new cord be and how hard is it to replace


Just went through this pain today. Here's how I did it. Use allen wrench with T handle to remove the shroud over the carb controls and plug. Then remove about 10 screws and split the case. Use tool that comes with the unit to remove the nut holding the impeller. Behind the impeller, use torx head to get the other bolts to remove the motor. There are two other screws on the other side that hold the motor on. Drop the motor from the case carefully. It is still attached by wires to the throttle and kill switch. Note how the throttle linkage is connected because it will come apart for sure. On the one side of the housing you are looking at the plastic cord spool with the spring unit behind it. My chord simply pulled out of the spool. It was held on with a 10mm nut and start washer (not a good design). If the chord broke, remove the remnant from the take up spool. To rewind the new chord or replace the one that pulled free, you need to wind the spring to put tension on it. Make sure the take up spool engages with the spring tang otherwise it will turn free and not tense the sprint. Once engaged with the tang, the spool should set to the bottom to be level with the metal chord guide. Turn the spool clockwise 3-4 turns until you feel it tighten. With a 2nd pair of hands, hold the tension on the spool and tread in your chord. Route the chord through the take up reel into the hole on the side. Loosen the 10mm nut with the star washer and route the end of the chord through it. Tie a simple knot in the end to prevent it from pulling through. Tighten the 10mm nut which clamps on the chord. Now, slowly, let the spring tension take up the loose chord until fully retracted. Make sure the metal chord guide fits in the slot to channel the chord properly into the take up reel. Hold the spool down and give the chord a gentle test or two. The chord should retract easily and fully. Simple as pie!!! Reverse the disassembly and you are back in business.

How to re-set srung starter cord


I am not certain what you are asking so I provide 2 answers.

Replace Starter Rope by SmallEng.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRyy3MlsjVo

Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly. New springs come wound small enough to be dropped into the starter housing.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

The starting cord has broken and I need to make repairs . I would like some guidence


Take the housing off for the pull rope. Inside you'll find a spool. Take that off and underneath you'll find a spring. Replace the pull rope and connect it to the spool like the old one is. With the handle outside of the case run the rope through the pull rope hole then attach it to the spool. Wind all but a foot or so of the new rope back onto the spool. The spring will have a way of attaching to the case and to the spool. Attach the springs to the case. There will be a notch cut into one side of the spool. You need to lay the rope into this notch and then place spool back into the case at the same time attaching the spring to the spool. Don't worry about tensioning the springs. Once the spool is back in you need to start winding up the spool in the direction that tightens the spring. You'll need to make about 5-8 rotations depending on the length of the rope. At this point, position the notch in the spool even with the hole where the pull rope enters the case. Pull on the pull rope handle until you pull the slack rope back through the notch and outside the housing. Then release the rope and the slack should be pulled back inside the housing and wrapped around the spool. Here is a video on changing a pull rope on a lawn mower. The idea is basically the same.

If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Ryobi ss30 (ry30544) pull string keeps jamming


I am having the same problem. I took it apart and the plastic cap piece for the pull string spool has a crack. This is the plastic piece that turns the engine when pulling. Because of the crack, the absorption spring under the cap slips out of its hole in the cap. This causes the pull string spool to jam after a strong pull that causes the crack to open up. Now I need to find a replacement part. Any ideas?
