Unscrew the coil housing for the rope using a socket set or screwdriver. Do not tip the mower over on its side when working on it because this can often cause oil and gas to leak out. Check out the coil wheel. Depending on where the rope broke, you might have some rope left on the coil wheel. You can feed the old rope back through its hole and retie the pull handle if you have enough rope to pull start the mower. Next, replace the housing and then screw it back in place. If you do not have enough rope, you will need to replace it with a new one. You can take a wrench and loosen the bolt that holds this in place. When you pull the wheel off, in most cases it will include the winding spring that coils the rope automatically.
Loosen the bolt that holds the coil pulley in place. When you take off the coil pulley, the coil spring will come off with it in most cases. Cut off the old rope using a knife. To remember which way the rope was coiled, make an arrow with a marker.Pull the new rope through the hole and tie a knot about the same size as the old rope because you do not want the new knot to catch on something when the coil pulley coils and uncoil. Wrap the new rope in the direction of the arrow you drew. Next, bolt the coil pulley back in place. To make sure it is working properly, unplug the spark plug- this allows you to pull on the rope to make sure it coils and uncoils correctly.
Pull the end of the rope through the hole in the housing. Tie the old pull handle to the end of the new rope. If the rope is too long, you might need to cut off the extra length and discard it. Place the house into its spot and screw or bolt it back on. Finally, put the spark plug wire back into place.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

A spring that is placed at the rear of the bolt of a automatic or semi automatic gun, that is utilized to take in or contain the recoil. The recoil spring is needed to absorb the shock of when a bullet is fired and the firearm pulls back towards the user so as to lessen the reaction of impact the user receives.

Inside the starter there is a long spring that unwinds as you pull the cord. The spring then recoils its self and pulls the cord back into the starter and onto a pulley. A simple clutch or levers/pawls let the pulley catch the crankshaft in only one direction so the pulley is free when the engine starts.

I rebuilt the carb as you advised. It took me a long time to get a kit because no one had one around here. I have new gas, new plug and still no go. I removed the plug and it was dry, so I put alittle gas in the plug hole and tried again, no go. What do you suggest I do now? Thanks Lee
ANSWER : Check to see if you have spark. This is done by removing the spark plug, connecting the wire to it placing it plug against the metal on the motor and pulling the starter cord. It is best to do this where the light is not bright because what you will be looking for is a spark on the spark plug. If there is a strong spark then that is good and will start it if the fuel/air ration is right. I hope this helps.

Can you suggest how to remove the string stuck in the holes and put new string in?

When I pull the cord, the string is hard to pull and recoils out of your hand about half way through the pull
ANSWER : Sounds like you have two problems. One the flywheel brake is not being released completely and second the flywheel key has been sheared. It is why the rope is being jerked out of your hand. The mower is out of timing and when the spark plug fires before it is suppose to, it jerks the rope out of your hand.

Pull cord will not pull out for model 358.794765 on craftsman blower/vac
ANSWER : You may have blown your engine. try to move the piston up or down when you take off the spark plug. if it does not move you may have broken a piston ring and the piston may be stuck because of the broken ring. you can also try to check the starter string where it is coiled in the spool. it may be just tangle up. remove the casing and check the string off of the engine.

MODEL SERIES A4 HIT SEWER CLEAN OUT NOW PULL STRING WONT PULL OUT , i AM GUESSING SHEER BOLT?
ANSWER : Let’s see if we can get thru this problem leaving you with a smile on your face rather than a frown.First look under the deck of your mower. Check to see if the blade may have bent and wedged up against the deck bottom to the point that would not allow the pull cord to be pulled, if this is so remove the blade. Second check with blade off to see if the engine will rotate, i.e pull the pull cord . If the engine rotates with no obstructions you should install a new blade. Third if the engine still doesn’t start then you have sheared the timing key. Remove the top cover to the engine and any other attachments, remove the flywheel, replace the shear key. You should then be good to go. Take your time, take a look, it may not be as difficult as you think. GOOD LUCK>

Pull Cord Will Only Pull Out 3-4 Inches Then Sticks
ANSWER : Take it apart as you did before. Look for whatever it is binding. Did you rewind the rope so there is a good amount of tension? If you didn’t, then do that . Good luck, Lee
