Q:

start stop problems PR6Y22CHA Poulan Rotary mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the control bail and killing the engine when needed, I know how concerning these types of issues can be.

If you follow the cable down to the engine where it ends you should notice a very small wire that is contacted by the piece that the cable moves when you work the control on the handle. It will likely not be making contact with that little wire switch. This could be because the little wire switch is bent or because the piece that moves is not coming back far enough. You can push that piece and make it contact the wire switch. If that's the case oil the pivot point where it moves. If that does not good, you can bent the wire switch forward some to where it will contact. 
The piece that moves does 2 things when you release the handle. It triggers a brake to stop the engine from turning and it also contacts that wire switch to kill the engine. 
For convenience, I have provided a blue link below for the stop switch on this Briggs engine. If you need to replace it, just click the blue link below.

Q:

how do you install the governor and oil slinger on the poulan model #tr6y22cha rotary motor engine #12h802-1922-E1 PR6Y22CHA Poulan Rotary mower

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the lawn mower. I will be happy to assist you. I put an image together showing how the slinger should be positioned.  I emailed the image to you. Once you have the slinger on the camshaft, you can reinstall the sump. The slinger should fit into the sump when positioned correctly. The sumo bolts should be torqued to 90 inch pounds.

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

 

Thank you, Mark

CHANGING THE STARTER ROPE ON A POULAN PRO PR6Y22CHA

I can understand your need for some type of instructions on how to properly replace the starter rope on your lawnmower. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

A:

You can drill them out and use machine screws (a replacement starter sends screws with it). Or you can just remove the whole shroud and put new rope in with the starter mounted. It's a little bit of a pain to do it that way, but it's usually faster and drilling out rivets and such.

If you do it with the starter on the shroud and the shroud removed: Wind the starter pulley up and then line up the hole with the string hole in the outer starter cover. Use a screwdriver (or something) through the vent slots to hold the starter pulley in place. Fish the new rope in from the outside (it's tedious) and then make a knot in the end to secure it. Hold the rope while you remove the screwdriver that's holding the starter pulley. Allow the pulley to slowly wind the rope up and then trim it and connect the handle.

I know I make it sound easy, but it only seems hard because you've not done it yet.

Let me know how this goes for you.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
