I have a Briggs and Stratton 8 HP engine that needs a new pull start assembly. Model 192432, type 0159 01, code 9406091A. I bought a pull start that was supposed to fit. It has Pals (think that's what they're called). My pull start does not. It has a plastic start that fits over the rectangular post to turn the engine. Do you have a pull start that fits over this 1" post?

Lawnmower starter rope broke (also the pulley/spring assembly)
The starter rope broke, as well as, I found out when I disassembled the housing, the pulley / spring assembly had also broken. I removed the entire shroud / cover, cleaned the assembly, removed the old pulley assembly and inserted the new one. Feed the starter rope into the pulley and tie off.
Have a screwdriver handy and turn the pulley assembly counter-clockwise until its taught, insert the screwdriver to keep the spring from unwinding and mount the shroud back to the engine. Once that's done, remove the screwdriver while keeping tension on the cord.
Reattach the cord to the mower handle.

Lawn mower rope broke and messed the spring up so it had to be replaced
put the new pulley on the shaft so the spring was hooked then wound the pulley a few turns counter clockwise and held it in place with a screw driver. Fed the new rope in and tied it the held the rope and slowly let the pulley wind the rope on to it. Then put the fly wheel cover on the engine and started the engine with one pull.
A small sheet of instructions came with the parts so no mistakes were made on winding the spring.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Nutdriver, two pair of needle nose pliers.
Lawn mower rope broke and coil spring loop had become undone and twisted.
Remove the engine shroud and then remove three bolts holding the gas down. Loosen another bolt left rear & down of the gas tank and you can tilt the gas tank back w/o removing it completely. Then remove another bolt holding the oil fill tube, pull up slightly and turn to the side so that it clears the engine cover. Remove 4 bolts holding the engine cover/pulley spring assembly and lift it up slowly(make sure you recall how it is mounted over some engine flanges). Remove a bolt holding down the Pawl friction plate over the pulley spring assembly and lift up on the assembly carefully as it contains the recoil starter spring. I then discovered that my new pulley spring assembly had the anchoring loop (the one that anchors on the center tab of the engine cover) looping to the right. My original spring looped to the left. I then had to use two needle nose pliers to carefully grab the spring loop and bend it around to the left making a new anchoring loop. This was very time consuming as you have to be careful of the spring not uncoiling. Once you done the new loop, bent the spring loop towards the center of the coiled spring so that it can catch on the center tab of the engine cover. Once you insert the pulley spring assembly, turn it counter clockwise until tight and then turn it back one turn to release some tension. You have to stick a small screwdriver in-between the pulley assembly and one of the slots in the engine cover to keep the spring from uncoiling. You them align the rope hole in the pulley with the rope hole in the engine cover and insert the new rope, grab it with needle nose and pull it, giving you some slack to tie the knot. You can now release the rope slowly (make sure you have the pull rope handle attached to the other end of rope) until the rope winds completely. You now attach cover back onto engine, making sure it fits correcting onto its location. You can now reattach all other parts in reverse of how you took them off. If you have a digital camera or phone, take pictures before or as you unassemble the engine, so you can remember what goes where.

Snapped rope and pulley spring.
Initial problem was snapped rope& pulley spring. Decided to do other maintenance like cleaning carb well, draining & cleans gas container, air filter, general over-all cleaning of motor, replacement of pulley spring assembly.
Started by removing exterior housing, air filter holder, carb float bowl, gas tank and old pulley/spring assembly.
Replaced old pulley spring assembly and new rope.
Re-assembled unit, adjusted idle.
Good as new ! No problems.
Had 2 units to repair - similar except one replaced non- Autochoke carb
Doing your own maintenance on simple engines like these are a snap and saves many $s. Just need right tools and be willing to get hands dirty and an easy place to get replacement parts.

Lawn mower starter spring broke
Had to remove old pulley and attached broken spring and replace it with new unit.
The trick was to not let the spring unwind from the pulley.
The hardest part was to place the pulley on the motor and with spring upside down you have to get the end of spring to grab a stationary post.
You also had to be sure the pull rope was wrapped perfect length on pulley for it to be right length after everything is assembled.

    Everything Worked Out Swimmingly!
    I have to say, from watching the videos to diagnose my repair job, to finding the right part/assembly to replace, then watching the installation video, this was a tremendously seamless operation. I am really impressed with the way things are set up by this organization, and will be back should something else fail on my equipment! Thank you for putting this all together to help us DIYers get ti done!
