Q:

MY STARTER CORD BROKE, HOW DO I REPLACE IT? 917292490 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
The rivets will need to be pryed or taken off with a small straight-edge screwdriver. The manufacturer uses rivets in the factory because of speed and ease of use. Once the rivets are taken off, you will use hex screw 690837 and hex nut 690800 to resecure the starter to the blower housing. The model specific starter rope is part number 693389 and if you decide to go with the entire rewind starter, the part number is 497830, which includes the hardware. 

Feed the new rope through the hole and tie a lefthanded knot on the rope end. Make sure the rope
and knot do not protrude from the knot cavity and
bind the pulley rotation. 
Hope this helps out and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

It sounds like the valves may be stuck open. Remove the head from the engine and spin the flywheel to see if the valves are opening and closing all the way. I have a feeling that they are not closing. If that proves to be the case, oil down the valve stems with some penetrating oil (I use Marvel Mystery Oil) then use the handle of a hammer to gently tap the valves down as you spin the flywheel slowly. Do this until the valves open and close on their own and that should take care of the problem.

It could also be that the valves are shot and the seats have popped out or something else, but you'll have to remove the head to look for anything of that nature as well.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
