Which Sten recoil starter rope?
Also is the very expensive DiamondCord starter rope16’ for $15 worth it?
This is for a residential use snowblower.
I used calipers and for my Lawnboy Toro Briggs engine recoil rope - it is 0.140”How to decide what diameter to use other than trying to match what was previously installed?
maybe on the older machines 5,5 is fine but all the 8-10hp tecumseh engines i got in my possession right now don't have 5.5 unless the 5.5 i bought was labeled wrong. the 10hp i got sitting in the basement right now actually looks like it might actually have 4.5 on it. i know i changed the pull cord on a 8hp and you would have to make the hole in the recoil bigger if you wanted to use 5.5 and obviously as Dony mentioned if you use too large of a cord in a recoil it can cause issues.Donyboy73 says 5.5 is good for snow blower recoils.
