Its typically only two or four screws to replace the entire assembly. But I would try to replace only the cord or spring first

Remove the 3 nuts holding the recoil assembly to the flywheel. Observe how the old rope is attached and wound. Rope is sold by the foot at mower repair shops. 3-4 ft should do. The rope is held in the recoil assembly by a knot and held in the handle by a knot.

I can't start it because the pull cord is stuck and it happened after I installed a new blade.


If the recoil assembly has three screws holding it in place, remove them, lift the recoil assembly off and see if it works off the mower. If it does, reassemble.

I need to replace the pulley and recoil spring assy on my victa statesman mower,how do i do it?


Most recoil assemblies are secured with three machine screws that once removed, allow the assy to be lifted off. The new assy simply reattaches in the same location.

Pull string won;t recoil


The recoil spring has broken. These are available at any lawn mower parts supply store. The process of changing the spring is tedious but can be done by anyone with average mechanical ability. If you removed the recoil assy (and air shroud if it is riveted on) and took the assembly to a Lawn Mower Repair shop usually they will change out the spring while you wait. If you can't get the recoil assy off take the mower with you to the repair shop. Again most shops will fix it while you if wait but if they are very busy usually they are serviced within 24 hours.

If you do attempt this yourself check in the tips section of FixYa on how to change the recoil stater rope after replacement of the spring.

I highly recommend you replace the pull rope at the time of the recoil spring replacement.

One final note... there is a possibility that the pull rope spool has been damaged where the spring attaches.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly
