A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

In order to gain access to the starter cord, the starter housing will need to be removed from the engine. It may be riveted to the engine. You can remove the rivets by drilling them out. Usually a 3/16" drill bit will work. You can them replace the rivets with bolts and nuts after the rope has been serviced. The bolt is part number 692608, and the nut is 690800. 

To help you with removing the damaged rope and installing the new rope, I have linked some videos below that you can watch to get a feel for the job.

Q:

Hook up drive bar cable? 917293483 Craftsman Rear tine tiller

A:

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having problems with the cable. I think the problem with the tension, is the drive bar control handle should be engaged when connecting. I was just looking at a similar model here and the top slot at the bend was where it was connected. The diagrams are not good but you can view the manual if needed.  I hope this helps. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
