Hi there, with R/C pull starts they can be quite complicated and in your case this is in fact the problem. Usually you can buy some new starter cord and attach the end back into the pull start mechanism but your mechanism contains some gearing which could be difficult to put back together. Think of it as a mini gearbox that increases the torque of your pull significantly to make sure the engine is turned over enough for it to start. You could try purchasing a complete pull start mechanism that you would simply bolt back onto the engine from here but please make sure that you find the right one for your vehicle. Give them a call for fitting compatibility.

If I were you I really wouldn't try and take the gearing apart yourself as you will be disappointed if it does not go back properly. I would advise to do it properly and easily with one of the proper pull start mechanisms

I hope this helps you

The pull cord on my Cub Cadet OHV 173cc self propelled mower broke.. I'm somewhat handy and should be able to fix it myself, however I've never done this before. I have the engine housing...

Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that). I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then. I am not sure why folks are giving you spark plug settings when you are asking about the cord. :)

I have a Toro Self Propelled lawn mower. The pull cord broke when I tried starting it. As I went to fix the cord I noticed that the spring to pull the cord broke. Is there any way to fix the spring...

You need to obtain the model number off the engine and go to a website that has small engine parts, and likely schematics. Enter the model number and find your engine and when you get a list of illustrated parts drawing select the one for the starter or recoil strarter or some such listing. This will give you an exploded view illustrated parts drawing and you need to find the broken parts. Take the number that identifies it on the drawing and look to the associated table. This will give you a part number and allow you to order it.

I hope this helps.

Flickering power/screen

sounds like a dry solder joint at the power plug.

To make sure of this just plug the console in and turn it on (so the red light goes on) and gently move the power cord an see if the red led flickers; if it does then follow this fix

Open the console don't loose the screws!
Remove the circuit board and look at the power plug closely
There are 3 joins to it and the board.
Sometimes you can just touch a hot soldering iron on them or a small blob of solder will fix it. Then reassemble and have fun.
