I broke the starter cord on my Tecumseh HSK 600 engine, which is equipped with a recoil starter. How do I replace the cord so that it will recoil? I have a new cord and have the plastic cowling off and the recoil housing off.

I apparently have something else wrong. I can't get the thing to wind up tight even though I have been turning it and turning it. Larry

JACUSTOMER-30scj567- :

So now what do I do?

JACUSTOMER-30scj567- :

Are u there?

Chris :

You need to disassemble it and check the spring. More than likely you will find the tab at the end broken off. Sorry for the delay

JACUSTOMER-30scj567- :

I can't find a screw or anything else to loosen it. Does the top of the small wheel just pry off?

Chris :

There is a clip. I can send you a link to a pic if you give me a moment

JACUSTOMER-30scj567- :

Good, I'll wait.

Chris :

One moment

Chris :
