Success! Fixed recoil starter rope...

That's one small step for man, one giant leap for snow removal...
Fixed the pull rope on the recoil starter of my MTD 10HP Tecumseh which is the first step in getting it back up and running. It know it's a laugh for you guys who are mechanically inclined but sadly I am not. One down. A couple of other issues to be tackles next. A really good video by Donnyboy on Youtube helped a lot....

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

His videos are great and his voice and demeanor make it all seem simple.

I know. He is zenlike in his approach to fixing stuff. The man could probably figure out a way to bring peace to the Middle East.

Put a happy little screw driver here, and we’ll just put the rope around like this...it will be our little secret.

it feels great, doesn't it , to fix something for the first time? gives you confidence to tackle other jobs. donyboy is great as well as this forum.

by this time next year you'll be able to completely break down your machine and put it back together in your sleep.

I don't care what you know, there's always something to learn. I could probably slap to gether a small block chevy blindfolded, just did a timing belt on my Sequoia (230,000 miles because of maintenance) etc..

But these little engines are another world, and I know I'll ask stupid questions and make assumptions that are wrong, but if you don't ask people with experience, you'll never learn. Sometimes the hard part is learning what knowledge is transferrable, and what isn't.

I learn something new every day, from everyone I talk to.
