SOURCE: I'm looking to replace the starter spring for my


Here is the gist of my particular method of how to rewind a recoil starter:

1) Remove the recoil assembly housing, don't remove the pulley or disassemble, but remove the old pull rope and the anchor
2) Prepare a replacement rope (based on length of old, melt end with match that goes in housing, etc). Don't put the handle on at this time.
3) The pulley should be "at rest" and not have any tension on it. Slowly rotate the pulley by hand until it become tight.
4) Unwind the pulley until the rope anchor lines up with the rope hole in the recoil housing
5) If able, use a zip tie at this point to secure the pulley from turning. Loop the zip tie through the housing, and anchor it to the pulley somehow. If not able, that is alright, you will just have to maintain tension with your hand
6) Carefully feed the rope through the rope hole, and through the anchor assembly. It makes it easier if the end of the replacement rope is heated with a match to make it smoother and stiffer. Heat the knot with a match as well, to help it hold tighter and longer.
7) Once you have the replacement rope anchored, slowly let the pulley unwind while feeding the rope into it.
8) When there is no more room on the pulley for additional rope, pull the rope back out about 6 inches from the rope hole, and cut so that you now have about 6" of rope hanging out of the recoil housing. Keep maintaining tension on the pulley the entire time.
9) Feed the free end of the rope through the pull handle, and tie the knot around the anchor for the handle
10) You should now be able to let the pulley **** back in the rest of the rope, but make sure that there isn't any rope sticking out of the groove for the pulley. If there is, pull the rope out a bit at a time, and trim it from the handle end. You want the pull handle to be pulled snugly against the rope hole by the tension of the pulley.
11) Reassemble the recoil housing back onto the blower engine, and you are done.

By doing it this way, you are guaranteed to have the longest rope available to pull with. This helps to prevent from pulling on the rope, reaching the end, and stressing the rope anchor and causing the rope to pull out / break prematurely. Manufacturer directions may specify an X amount of pre-loading on the spring, but I have never had a problem with my method. Just be sure to use the same size rope for replacement, don't go bigger or smaller.

My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

You will need to adjust the high speed setting on your Carburetor jet. Turning the screw out just 1/2 turn or so should do the trick. It is not so hard to adjust the Carburetor, however, yes you do need a special tool that is very hard to get your hands on, in order to adjust the jet screws. They don't make many engines with plain screw heads anymore. The newer Carburetors are factory set lean so they can pass emission standards. Since you just bought yours, a local husky dealer should adjust the mixture for free. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I

If you have tried a new spark plug and you still have no spark, then your Ignition Coil, (Module) has gone bad. They aren't cheap if you buy it new. Try to find a used one if you can for around $10.

Good Luck!

Hello all, I was just wondering how to fix an apparent open throttle on a 1982 Honda cb750 Nighthawk 750?

I suspect that the throttle cable is out of the end setting from removing and replacing the carbs or a return spring for the cable has broken off and not pulling the throttle back to idle position

Trigger stuck on full

This machine has a metal throttle rod from the trigger to the carb, you need to look at the side of the carb where the rod connects to the carb, with your finger ( with the engine stopped ) work the carb throttle spindle manually to see if it is moving freely and it springs back to the small throttle idle screw easily, if it does unscrew the idle screw with a cross head screw driver until the machine idles ok, if not you need to take the l/h side cover off to investigate what has happened .

Ryobi cs30 starts fine, but idles way too fast after warm up. I mean screaming fast. Throttle return works fine and idle adjustment is set at it lowest.

you need to take your air filter off and look into the throat of the carbruetor to see if the ""Butterfly""
is still intact and working not the choke butterfly its the one closest to the engine that moves with the throttle and be sure it is still there and moves as you move the throttle.... open is horizontal and closed is not quite 90 Degrees. check to see it is tight and in the center if the throat when closed.
you may have to remove the carb. to see it function more clearly
make sure the throttle cable is free and not binding any where and to be sure of its adjustment to allow the throttle to return to the idle position.
lubricate the cable from the trigger to carb. wd 40 is ok.
if all above is ok then find the L on the carb. and ccw it 1/8 turn to ritchen it alittle to help slow the idle down some to a respectable level

Throttle responce

Throttle response. Check cable. There may be restrictions (rust). second, There's a return spring on the carb... it could be loose or is not able to return the throttle to its default position. Check also that the IDLE knob is not set too high.

Hope this helps.

Idleing to high

  1. throttle linkage resting against the carb rubber mount and not closing fully. Unusual problem which was cured by gently filing away part of the rubber mount.
  2. slightly deformed throttle linkage on the left carb which made it difficult for the spindles to return to resting position. Cured by dismantling and repositioning.
  3. the metal clamp linking the spindle bar to the accelerator pump rod was rubbing against the carb body, making return to the closed position difficult. Cured by dismantling and reassembling in the right position.
  4. length of the throttle rod was slightly too much. Cured by carefully turning in the plastic couplers and readjusting the holding nuts.
  5. slight air leak through bad gasket. Cured by replacing the gasket.

Very high idling

Hi, try disconnecting the linkage from the butterfly shaft on the carb. You should be able to turn this shaft thru a quarter turn by hand, and self return by means of the spring. If this is not free it may well be your problem. Is it a twin throat carb? then check that the secondary butterfly is closing fully in the throttle "off" position.
