Question and Answers

Q:

thredding new rope on recoil starter

A:

To install the rope on the starter pulley attach the end of the rope to the pulley and wind the rope by turning the pulley so it winds the spring at the same time. This will put the proper tension in the spring so it will retract the rope.

Q:

My lawnmower doesn't work. It is a model 917373680. My uncle took the carburetor off and the engine works. How much does a new carburetor cost?

A:

I feel sure the carburetor will need to be replaced. I recommend you replace the fuel line from the fuel tank to the carburetor as well. The part number of the carburetor is 632795A, and the cost is around $70.00. The fuel line is part number 29774, and the cost is around $4.00.

There is no way of telling if the engine will need anything else until you get it running. It will probably be ok.

Q:

possible broken mower governor

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am afraid I have bad news. It sound like the engine was running wide open and broke the connecting rod. That is why the engine turns over easily. I recommend removing the spark plug and place you thumb over the spark plug hole. Then have someone pull the starter rope. The compression should blow your thumb off the hole. I suspect it will not. If it doesn't the valve is hung open or the connecting rod is broke. When the connecting rod breaks it usually causes other damage. It is not cost effective to repair the engine on a 1993 mower. I am sorry I could not give you better news.

If you have any other questions, please reply below with more details and I will get right back to you.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
