How do you replace a pull cord on a Honda lawn mower?

Unscrew the three nuts holding the starter to the engine housing, using a socket wrench. Remove the starter, turn it over and pull out all of the old starter cord. Use needle-nose pliers to pry the knot out of the pulley hub if necessary.

Secondly, can you start a lawn mower without a pull cord? This work is pretty easy to do, but you might also have a bent crankshaft, which will need to be fixed by an experienced small-engine repair guy. Or you might consider buying a new mower without a cord. You can take your pick of electric or battery-powered models, as well as gas mowers with electric starting.

Herein, why won't the cord pull on the lawn mower?

The crankshaft is connected to the blade shaft on your recoil start walk behind lawn mower, so if the pull cord is stuck, it could be because something is blocking the movement of the blade. Clean out any grass or rocks that may be locking up the blade.

  3. Re-tension the spring.
