SOURCE: Lawnmower Starting Pull Cord Replaement

There will be a piece of casing that holds the starter mechanism in. Usually held by 4 screws (probably torx screws unless it's an old machine).
Undo these screws and you will find the cord carrier inside.
Observe how the starter dogs are located, and how it all goes together.
You may be able to remove & replace the cord without taking the carrier off the casing, but it is probably easier if you do.

Then you simply remove the old cord, thread a new cord through the hole & tie it. Reassemble the carrier onto the casing. Thread the cord out of the casing & through the handle, tie that end.
Then wind the cord around the cord carrier until there is a slight tension on the spring.
Screw the casing back on the mower and you're away.

SOURCE: Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.

Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry

Repair lawn mower pull cord


Home Depot sells a replacement pull cord kit that has great instructions. My mower, however, had pop rivets holding the cover on the engine, so if yours does too, get a pop rivet tool with the correct size pop rivets before you start drilling out the old pop rivets.

What is wrong with the toro push mower pull cord if it will not pull out?


I would say check the bolts that hold down the pull cord they are the same thread as the cover bolts but the cover bolts are a tad longer and if used on the pull cord housing they stick down to far and hit the fan blades on the magneto and it will not rotate

Rover i4000 Q start


you will need to pull the top cover off the mower and follow the spark plug wire to the coil. when you pull the rope it turns a circlular drum that when it rotates near the coil will create a spark. you need to take some sand paper and clean the drum and the coil. there is probably some rust or film causing no spark.
hope this helps.

How do I replace the pull cord on a craftsman 6.75 HP EZ walk?


Remove the three or four bolts holding on the pull cover and lift it off the mower.

Get a length of new pull cord and fish it into the hole the cord comes out of while passing it into the cord reel underneath the cover. There should be a hole in the reel where you can see where the cord should come out. Then you tie a knot into that end of the cord. With the cord now on the reel you wind it backwards with free end of the cable enough turns to **** in the free cord when you let it go. Usually 6-10 turns minimum. Remember to allow for the distance to the lawn mower handle! Unless your cord terminates at the top of the pull cover.

Good luck and be careful!

Pull cord is stuck


Take off your cover to the pull cord, the cord probably just got wrapped around the pulley. If you run into trouble with taking off this cover go to smalleng.com they will walk you through the process off pull cord removal and installation. Good Luck PAL.

Lawn mower pull cord


This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps
