Tool Type:
Lawn Mower
Parts Used:
Pawl Friction Plate - 692299
Ratchet Pawl - 281505S
Spring-Friction - 691855
Pulley Spring Assembly - 498144
Starter Rope - 697316
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.

Replaced four blower housing screws. The air cleaner cover just snaps in place. I then remove the complete starter assembly by removing the screws holding it. I turned it upside down and removed the screw for the pawl friction plate, then the plate and the worn pawl ratchets and replaced them with the new pawl ratchets. Installed the new friction plate and new friction plate screw. Installed the complete starter assembly. Done.

Question: Starter Pawl Ratchet

rocdawg

what's the purpose of starter pawl ratchet
I think it holds the starter pawls in the correct orientation for the starter cup so they catch in the prescribed notches in the cup, instead of missing them and hitting the smooth spots on the cup.
Question: Pawl Spring Installation

mccnback

After reassembling starter recoil and placing it on the engine, the pawls do not engage to turn the crankshaft. Does the starter rope need to be pulled out while placing the housing on the engine? Thanks
If you are inquiring about the starter housing, then, no...the starter rope does not need to be pulled out as the starter housing itself is a self contained unit, and you can CHECK your installation of the new pawls BY pulling the starter rope out. Either way, the pawls should NOT inhibit the movement of the rope on the starter pulley.
