My lawnmower which is a TORO 6.5hp-Tecumseh engine won't start. When I pull the cord the valves start to move but on the second pull it seems to sieze up and blow some vapor out the exhaust.It ran fine last week...any ideas?

It sounds like hydraulic lock. The carb is dumping to much fuel into cylnder. Pull the plug when it feels locked up and pull again, if it blows gas out of the plug hole you have carb problem. Maybe needle is ****, maybe float has a hole in it and is sinking causing flooding.

No compression when I pull the cord on my lawnmower Briggs and Stratton. What do I look for and how do I fix it?


There could be a whole bunch of things to cause this, from a badly worn engine to just a valve stuck open, a dealer could do a leakdown test on the engine and give a more definate reason for the problem, or you could remove the cylinder head ( side valve engine ) and check the valves are opening whilst turning the engine.

How do I take the pull cord wheel and spring off my Tecumseh Vantage 35 to replace it


There are little metal tabs that hold the wheel in place, bend these out then the whole assembly will come out. When replacing use the other tabs and wind the spring in, line up the cord hole then insert the cord, tie knot then release.

Try to pull cord but seems seized on my self propelled lawnmower


Look underneath at your blade - it could be bent and hanging up. If not, remove spark plug and try to pull starter cord. If it won't move then you may have seized the motor and a new mower may be in order.
Hope this helps!!

My toro lawnmower (brand new) it doesn't start.\r\...


The drive shaft might just need to be oiled. Turn the mower over and locate the drive shaft, where it goes from the mower's blade up into the body of the mower. Lubricate the area of the shaft that disappears into the body with WD-40 or another lubricant, then turn the blade by hand (be careful!) and squirt some more oil.

Eventually the blade should become easier to turn, and then your pull cord should extend without getting stuck. Good luck!

My lawnmower engine cuts out


I was having the exact same problem with my 6.5 hp Toro lawnmower with a Tecumseh engine. The engine would start up okay but after a few minutes of mowing, the mower would start missing and eventually shut down. I would pull and pull and pull on the starter rope, getting angry and frustrated and eventually going back in the house to let it cool down.

I looked up all kinds of information and I finally decided it was a bad coil (something about the resistance being low when the mower wasn't hot and then when it heated up the coil would conduct enough electricity to somehow make the engine shut down.)

I called a local shop and wanted to get an estimate on replacing the coil. I have no clue about engines so I dared not get into the guts of the mower myself. He told me to check the gas cap. HUH??????

He told me to make sure there wasn't a part missing out of it. I thought, what the heck would a gas cap have to do with the engine shutting down. Well, apparently there is a mechanism on these caps that prevents a vacuum from pulling on the fuel system and my gas cap indeed had a part missing. To verify this, I cut the grass for about 5 minutes. When it started to run rough, I took the gas cap off to allow pressure to escape from the gas tank and voila! it started to purr like a kitten.

So, I'm only out $4 for a new gas cap and I'm as good as new. Man I wish I was more mechanically inclined so I hope your problem is as easy to solve as this one.

Hope this helps!
