Q:

replacing recoil pulley on cultivator model 316-292710

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the cultivator. I should be able to assist you in repairing the recoil starter. To repair the starter you will have to remove the engine from the cultivator. There should be one screw that has to be loosened for the engine to slide off the shaft. Once it is removed follow the instructions I have posted in the image below. Before removing the starter pulley, be sure to have eye protection on because the recoil spring can come out accidently. The spring is thin and can cause cuts when it comes out. Please click here to watch a video on how to install the rope and tighten the spring.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair.

Q:

No spark

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. I will be happy to assist you with accessing the coil. First, click on the image below. I will be referring to that image. To remove the engine from the tiller remove the four screws I have marking with the red arrow. Once they are removed, you should be able to lift the engine away from the drive. Next, you have to remove the clutch. I have found a video that shows how to remove the clutch. Click here to watch the video. After you have the clutch off you need to remove the four screws I have marked in green. Once those are removed, you can slide the starter housing off to expose the coil. Before replacing the coil, I recommend removing the kill wire from the coil. Then recheck for spark. If you have spark then the problem is a shorted kill wire. If you do not have spark I recommend replacing the coil. The parts for the tiller can be ordered from the following link. Craftsman tiller parts

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