It's not that hard. I've never done it on my Toro GTS 5.0, but I have done it on a Briggs and it's pretty much the same. Start by removing the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the engine shroud. DON'T remove the 4 top bolts on the recoil housing. You might have to remove the fuel tank first. Drain it, then loosen the 2 8mm screws and lift it straight up. No need to disconnect the fuel line, just set the tank aside. After removing the 10mm bolts, the shroud should lift right off. Flip it over and you will see the recoil pulley. Remove any leftover cord from the pulley. Now you need to wind the pulley against the spring in the direction it goes when you pull the cord. It might wind 2 or 3 revolutions but don't overdo it. Now you will need some sort of clamp to hold the pulley in place as you line up the slot in the pulley with the opening where the handle goes. Next, feed the new cord through the opening and into the pulley and tie a knot to keep it from slipping out. Carefully release the clamp and let the pulley slowly wind the new cord onto itself. Finally, attach the handle on the other end of the cord and test it. If you can pull the handle and the cord comes out and it retracts normally, re-install the shroud and tank.

How do I open the case around the pull cord on a Torro 22" recycler lawn mower?


It's been a while since I pulled one of those engines apart - the LV195 engines came in 2 versions. One has a detachable recoil starter that is held on by 2 screws, the other is an integral part of the cowling. Either way, the repair procedure is the same - remove the starter, or entire cowling as appropriate (may need to remove some plastic and the tank first), remove label on top, SUPPORT THE ASSEMBLY ON A DEEP WELL SOCKET or similar and drift out the central roll-pin into the centre of the socket drive the pin from outside to inside. If you don't support it, it WILL bend and make it useless. Make a note of the order of the washers and springs etc, then fit a repair kit.
