Question Replace Starter Cord Pull?

Hi,

I'm giving my old snowblower to a friend of mine, but last year when I pulled the starter cord the cord broke off.

Is it fairly easy to put on a new starter cord? If he took this in; how much would something like this cost to repair?

I still have the old starter cord string and the plastic pull piece too; so I'm not sure if they can still use this to fix it.

Thank you!

I would replace the rope. If you try reusing the old one it will be too short and it is still old and brittle. It shouldn't take more than a half hour to fix and cost is probably only a couple dollars for a piece of rope.

If you take it in somewhere it will probably be an easy $25 - $75.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

This may help. Beyond that this is a case where YouTube can be a hero.

I use para cord to replace starter cord, where I can. You would have to be the 500 lb gorilla in the room to break that.

Just my way.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
