Trying to replace the pull cord , can’t get last housing off to get to coile up old cord , the shaft has a nut on the end that the auger screws into but i cannot get that piece off as there is no where to put a wrench to stop the turning of the engine shaft so i can torque the nut in the other direction to get it off , what do i do to get this pull cord replaced?
Use an impact wrench it will hit the nut so fast it will loosen it befroe the engine car turn over

Hard to pull starter rope. It doesn’t pull smoothly. hard to pull.
Take the spark plug out–does it pull smoothly now? If not, the pull cord may be the wrong size or it is damaged and/or doesn’t rewind correctly. Does the machine have a compression release? If so, it may be plugged with carbon. With the spark plug out, pull the engine through several times briskly with the throttle open and the choke off to expel any excess fuel from the crankcase. Hope some of this helps!
Chain saw won’t start – pull starter pulley hard to pull?
If it worked fine the last time you used it, then pull the spark plug and try pulling the rope. See if it’s easier or if gas shoots out of the plug hole. I’ve seen this happen when the diaphram in the carb goes bad from sitting over winter. It loads up the cylider with fuel and makes it very difficult to pull the rope. If there is no fuel in the cyliner and it’s still hard to pull, make sure there is nothing binding the clutch/sprocket. I’ve had chucks of wook lodged in there that caused it to bind the crank output, which resulted in a hard pull on the rope as well.
My chainsaw starts when there is no bar and chain on it but when I put the bar chain and side casing back on tighten the chain and pull the starter cord it is hard to pull and then the chain goes loose again
Have you just replaced the chain?If so there is a possibility the chain and drive sprocket don’t match causing the engaging spurs to ride on the sprocket teeth

When I pull the cord, the string is hard to pull and recoils out of your hand about half way through the pull
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.
The pull cord will not recoil. what do i do? the spring behind the cord was just assembled and went to pull it and it wont recoil the pull cord.
