Clutch Cargo I use 6mm marine grade braided line. You'll only have to do it once.

driz Take some and go to a local boat or snowmobile shop, better yet call around. Just measure with a Mike and do get the same diameter. They sell it by the foot so at a generic repair place it's probably costing $7 compared to $20 for the exact same thing at name brand X. Places that rent tools have it too for fixing their rental stuff. That's where I'd start, cheapest.

E350 Taurus04: Excellent frickin' video Eh? Thank you very much!

nwcove: I bought 6mm for the rototiller, I guess I will have to wait for it to arrive to know if it is too big.

nwcove outboard motor starter rope, from a dealer of quality outboards, is about as good as you can get, but still is at the mercy of the rope guides its getting pulled through.

Taurus04 might want to check out Donyboy73 on YouTube. The size (thickness) of the rope might make a difference.

EdwardC Interesting, if you look closely at that Cobra Cord, it looks like it could very well be UHMWPE.

Best Starter Rope?

I just ordered some 6mm pull rope for the starter of a rototiller. It was advertised on Amazon as starter pull rope so I assume that it is made for that use.

But I am familiar with various qualities of rope (i.e., rope with Spectra woven in, etc.).

So do any of you have any suggestions for the best pull starter rope out there?

I want to "one and done" the rope in all my pull starter (recoil) small engines.
