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




What do you think about this video?

Paul Brown: Dony, I found it much easier  to just leave the spring assembly alone and just turn the assembly inside until you feel it is tight enough, then install the rope without taking anything apart. It always worked fine for me.

I also had a few spring come undone and had to work them back inside again, very hard.

MrCuckoobox: Thanks for sharing......Great Vid......Base on what I have read on the blogs...Many are claiming that using 550 Paracord is the best bang for your buck for Starter Rope - 550 7 Strand Type III Mil-Spec Survival Paracord. This was based on some one that repairs lawn equipment as yourself. He had a client who owns a landscaping Company and had him replace all the mowers, weed wackers, blowers etc with the Para Cord per his request when the starter recoil cords failed/broke. He has never had to re-replace a cord yet after years doing business with his client.

Aaron Taylor: Just fixed it! Yes! I thought there was no way to NOT uncoil the spring. Thank you!

Richard Muller: This post really helped me replace my Hayter Harrier 48 pull cord. Thanks a million.

ristomatti kolsi: Hi donyboy73!!! Could you show in some video sometime, how to repair the pull cord on very old Briggs & Stratton 3hp engine from erly 70's? Also i'd like to see what is the best way to install the start spring on those old Briggs engines.
The starting system is different in those 1960's and 70's engines, than in 1990's classic engines.
Have a good soon beginning spring time there in Canada, and my best wishes to mrs.

Eric Ace: do u have anything on a eskimo ice auger , i was starting to pull and something came off the handle and the rope recoil in , so i dont need to replace the rope i just need to reattach it the handle

Tracy R: Thanks you just stopped me stressing over a broken pull cord on a borrowed lawn mower, off to buy a new one now

estrelladelnorte1308: can you make a video on all the different rope sizes and what kind to use on different machines.

terry jenkins: I use G.I. para cord works just fine!

Sarfraz Munir: just changed mine so thank you

waferswafers: Thanks for the video. I’ve just replaced the pull cord on my B&S engined mower here in the UK, following your advice all the way through. The only area which was a bit of a head-scratcher was lining up the recoil spring tab. Turns out my spring needed some tweaking with my long-nose pliers before it would catch on the tab. I’ve still got no idea how it miraculously latched in the first place Got there in the end though!

angeleyes102162: Thanks to you I think I can do this ! Thank you for making it plain and simple
