How do you replace starter spring on mcculloch 1.2 chain saw


If yours is not repairable, you can buy the whole starter housing , or just the starter parts to repair your starter assembly. The actual spring can be mounted on the starter spindle, and using strong clips, can be held in place or using vice grips to hold in place once the spring is tensioned , and in place. Then match the starter spindle over the spring. Next the starter rope, will have to rewind completely once it is installed back on the saw. If not, you can tension the spring by holding the rope at the starter spindle, and twist the starter spring about 4 to 5 complete revolutions clockwise, and then winding the rope on by releasing the spring . You can find videos on youtube and other online video services, to get a visual of what I described.

We call that a duck bill vavle. You may have to buy fuel cap for it. The Home Depot should be able to help you with that. Or you can call Ryobi, I think they will sell you one direct

Ryobi 40cc chain saw, pull cord won't turn rotar assembly


I had the same problem with my 18 inch Ryobi saw. The problem is the tabs that engage the recoil to the flywheel are of poor quality steel and they bend out of position. The end result is when you pull tyhe rope it just jumps and wont start. Eaven the new parts do the same thing. Simple soultion is remove the recoil starter four screws require a torx bit or a flat screwdriver. after your remove the recoil starter using a pair of pliers bend the two tabs upwards untill they are not quite straight up (about a 80 degree angle be carefull not ot brake the tab off) once you have done this remove the center nut that holds the flywheel on. the silver pins that hold the tabs in position need to be punched out but remember how they go back by doing only one at a time and remember how the spring is installed. Turn the flywheel over and using a punch and hammer remove the pins. Put the tabs in a vise to hold them sucerly clean the steel as best you can on the inside of the bend. Fill the bend with brazing rod or coat hanger if you haven't got any brazing rod avilable. You don't have to com;leatly fill the bend but put enough in there to suport the tabas so they can't bend agin. Reassemble the saw and you're done. Mine works great now, better than new. This problem isn't limited to recon saws only, mine is a new saw and I still had the problem. Good luck herbdogs

Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.


Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps
