HOW TO Repair The Pull Cord On Your Lawnmower With Briggs & Stratton 3.5 Classic Engine




What do you think about this video?

ZeroSteel45: Some times I wish I was white so I did not have to do this my self sigh 

MIKESTER3034: I'm not done yet, I'm just half way through but so far I wanted to say your a genius donyboy73! lol Everything looks exactly like you said it would and I got the top off easy. There's no hole in my spool either. I was going to try it without making a hole if possible, since i have no blow torch. I'll post after I'm done. Hoping for success. lol

wpwandaphillips: perfectly said and done!

JEFFAR420: so in the video you wind up the cord after putting the recess in the pulley however when you show the part where you hook up the spring to the casing the cord is unwound and you rewinded, is there a part missing? I am afraid of the spring popping out on me if I do this the wrong way.

nycrankster: One of the best advice clips i have seen on youtube. watched it once then went out and fixed the mower. donyboy73, you know your stuff.

larry b: great vid dony n thanks a bunch ...i'm working on the very same eng.  and had a hard time till i decided to look you up here..took me 10 min. then to do what ive rassled with all morn !i'm sure there's a lotta folks got their own way of doing things and i say they should just pass it on ...so us dummies can learn from them as well...not .critisizing those who do ..

Fernando Castillo (Castfe22): +donyboy73 Great video! Real informative and helpful! 

lib gunner: Alot of extra work for nothing !

Alan Porter: my lawnmower only work if pet tank is full and it run out and is still got half a tank of petrol  

William Radulovich: Very well explained I am going to try tightening up the spring now. Hopefully, you saved me the price of a new lawnmower.
Thanks!

jonchos: Hey Thank you for the videos. I have a question. I Have a mower with a similar Briggs Stratton motor that the rope had a metal clip/ring? that seems to have pushed itself out of the recoil assembly and making the rope not retract fully. How can that be fixed?
Thank you

La Kiesha Rodriguez: Just bought a new murray push mower with briggs and stratton engine 6.25 and rope wont even pull out of housing...some out but just hanging out. Didn't. Go back inside and wont let me pull anymore out.

Mark Stanton: WAAAAAAY too many steps.....Line up the hole in the metal cover with the hole in the spool and insert the rope through BOTH at the same time.....pull up a loop of rope between the spool and cover and wind it to correct tension, lubricate and DONE!

William Rameka: I am having problems getting spark on my rotary hoe Briggs and Stratton I have discarded the points system and replaced it with a electronic system and I am still not getting spark????

zlatko vujevic: Hi Don! Can you please make a video of replacing pull cord on sthil Fs trimmer. Thank you a lot.

Joseph Marovich: You're how to video is excellent; thank you.  The question I have has to do with a screeching noise I have after I've pulled the cord, the lawnmower starts, and off I go.  Then comes the screeching.  I shut it off and not that the cord is loose and I have to pull it almost all the way out for it to recoil and I start again.  After running a couple of minutes the screeching starts, I shut down, note the cord has to be pulled out some before it recoils.  What I can't figure out is why the cord is tight when the mower starts and then when the screeching comes it's loose.  What's wrong and what causes the screeching?  Thanks.  my email is jmarovic@twc.com

pittarak1: G'day DonyBoy, Very useful video.  My pull cord has bust, but I have the added problem that when the cord snapped off it tore away part of the plastic in the wheel itself! This has made a big hole; I could make an even bigger knot or simply replace the wheel?  Unfortunately, I can't seem to track down a spare part name or number for this wheel piece....... the Briggs and Stratton website isn't that helpful any ideas? Horroo, Dave

Kristen Henkel: Thanks for the great tutorial!  We would have gotten our lawn mower going again, but it looks like the spring is broken.  The coil is intact except the last 1 1/2 inch is separate (where the notch is located).  Do you have any advice for replacing the coil?

Gustavo Fring: Very useful thankyou.
