Remove the clutch cover.
Disconnect and remove the spark plug.
Install a piston stop in place of the spark plug.
Remove the clutch drum. Has small screw in center; usually has a Trox head on it.
Remove the clutch assembly. Usually has left handed threads so turn it clockwise.
Once the clutch is removed then you need remove the starter cover assembly and the air cleaner cover assembly.
Once the starter cover assembly is off remove the pull rope pulley and check for damage.
Depending the pulley design you can now install a new rope first or you need to re install the pulley.
Tighten the pulley fully by turning the direction as you would pull it until it stops and back off one turn.

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 :

The pull rope on a weed eater is used to start the engine. The pull rope is located in the starter cord housing on the rear of the weed eater engine housing. Through normal use the pull rope can become worn or damaged causing it to break.
Most of the time, the cause is an issue within the pull mechanism itself. The three most common issues associated with a string trimmer pull mechanism that makes it harder to pull are a broken cord, a stuck cord, or a recoil spring that is damaged.
A 4-stroke engine needs four strokes of its piston to burn fuel and generate power: Intake: a downward stroke draws in fuel. Compression: an upward stroke expels exhaust. Combustion (Power): another downward stroke brings in more fuel and ignites it.
Use the 40:1 mixture. All of our handheld two-cycle units can operate on a 40:1 two-cycle oil mix ratio.

I have a cub cadet 2165 I just put in a new battery and it is slow turning over any ideas?
ANSWER : If battery is good and everything is hooked up right. Most likely could be the pto clutch bearing. Not the bearing on the pulley but on the clutch inside. Had the same problem, took the spark plugs out got it free. Turned over easy with plugs out, Started right up after and then burned up my bearing. Don’t burn up bearing. If do field assy. For that is 200$ if you can get away with just that. Otherwise 350-400$ for full assy.

I have a cub cadet LT1042 and it is 3 years old…we have replaced the pto 2 times and replaced the belt 7 times what is the deal
ANSWER : You have to have something rubbing under there that isn’t supposed to be, crawl under the tractor and watch the belt go around by hand, if you can turn it. Maybe see what is frozen up, in the wrong place, Gotta be a belt guide is rubbing or a pulley is not spinning. The PTO should last 20 years, all i can think is they got it too tight to start, .010″ min, that is tight, and you must be in Florida picking up a lot of sand? If it was under any kind of warranty, I would raise a big stink about it. Those PTO’s are not cheap. And the belt has got to be $20. I wouldn’t go to a dealer for the belt, unless it is really special, just match it up at the auto parts store, for half the price of dealer. Hope this helps.
