Thank you, but I have fixed the problem. The clue was that it would instantly "pop" through the exhaust when I pulled the cord. I ended up removing the front of the engine by removing the seven (or so) bolts around the part of the engine where the spark plug attaches. I then saw that the exhaust valve was stuck out. This is why as soon as the mixture ignited, it went out the exhaust. I only had to spray WD-40 into the valve stem and turn it around to free it. I then replaced the gasket and engine front. It started immediately after everything was put back together.

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the Craftsman lawn vacuum model 247.77010. If the starter will not engage I suspect the moving parts are a little sticky from dust and debris or one of the parts are bent. In most cases, the recoil assembly can be lubed and it will cure the problem. I found a video that shows how to remove and lube the recoil Click here to watch the video.

 

If lubing the starter does not cure the problem, it will need to be replaced.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Thank you for using Mange my life.

Thank you for your question on the removal of the impeller on the leaf mulcher vacuum.

You will need to use the tool you ordered.

First remove the bolt that holds the impeller to the crankshaft of the engine.

Then put grease on the threads of the tool and thread it into the impeller hub. When the bolt bottoms on the inside end of the crankshaft it will pull the impeller off the crankshaft.

Please look at the two images below.

I hope this information will help.

Thanks, Sam..... I thought it might be used like that but wanted to make sure first. This "removal tool" is a first....nothing like this in any mower or blower I have ever ran into. THanks again.
