Customer Question
I need to change...

I need to change my pull cord on a Briggs quantum ic engine I have the model

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?

120702 engine on a Billy Goat Possibly 30 years

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If we can.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Cord is frayed. Also recoil assembly is rivited to the engine. Thats why a friend told me to take off the whole front housing and then trun it over for access to the recoil

Hi I'm Wayne

I will be assisting you with this issue today

What you need to do is drill out the rivets to get recoil off

and replace the rope , then you can secure it with Sheet metal screws,

they will be 10x32x 3*4

I hope this helps you
