How to Replace the Recoil Spring in an MTD Motor Lawn Mower
? ? ??The recoil spring winds the pull rope back into the housing with spring-action after each pull when you attempt to start the mower. The recoil spring weakens over time with use, and can eventually crack, break or warp, making it necessary to replace the recoil spring.
1.Loosen the rope eyelet retaining wing nut and slide the rope free from the eyelet, slipping it between the eyelet and lawnmower handle bar.
2.Unscrew the four engine shroud retaining screws on top of the engine with a Phillips head screwdriver. Unscrew the lawnmower fuel tank fuel cap.
3.Pull the engine shroud free from the top of the lawnmower engine. Screw the fuel tank cap onto the fuel tank inlet thread to prevent dirt and debris from entering the fuel system.
4.Unscrew the three pull start recoil assembly retaining bolts with a 10-millimeter socket and ratchet wrench. Lift the recoil assembly free from the top of the lawnmower engine.
5.Pull the start rope fully out of the recoil assembly; clip a spring clamp onto the recoil assembly and rope pulley. Remove the rope knot from the start pulley recess with needle-nosed pliers. Untie the knot or cut the rope just below the knot with scissors.
6.Remove the start rope from the pulley and out of the recoil assembly. Release the spring clamp.
7.Unscrew the pulley shoulder retaining bolt with a 10-millimeter wrench. Lift the shoulder retaining bolt and pressure plate from the pull start rope pulley. Pull the starter pawls and pressure plate compression spring from the top of the pulley. Lift the pulley and recoil spring from the recoil assembly.
8.Remove the old recoil spring from the backside of the spring groove with needle-nosed pliers. Fit the new recoil spring hook-end into the pull recoil spring groove by hand. Apply a light coat of lithium grease to the recoil spring contact area with a disposable paintbrush.
9.Set the pulley into the recoil assembly, rotating it counterclockwise until the recoil spring seats into the recoil assembly and the pulley falls into position. Fit the starter pawl rolled ends into the top of the pulley recess with the starter pawl hooked ends facing inward. Set the pressure plate compression spring into the center recess.
10.Apply thread locking compound to the pulley shoulder retaining bolt. Slide the bolt through the pressure plate. Screw the bolt into the pulley; align the extrusions on the pressure plate with the inside starter pawls. Torque the bolt between 71 to 89 inch pounds with a torque wrench and 10-millimeter socket.
11.Wind the pulley clockwise until the recoil spring stops; rotate it back counterclockwise one full revolution. Align the rope groove with the recoil assembly rope outlet. Clip a spring clamp onto the recoil assembly and rope to hold the position.
12.Seal the pull rope end with a lighter to prevent it from fraying. Push the end of the rope into the recoil assembly and through the rope groove. Pull the rope out of the pulley groove with needle-nosed pliers. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope; pull the rope knot tightly into the pulley recess groove. Unclip the spring clamp to wind the rope into the recoil assembly.
13.Pull the rope from the recoil assembly several times to check for proper recoil spring operation. The recoil spring is properly tensioned when the rope handle sits tightly against the rope outlet. Assemble the recoil assembly in reverse order of disassembly.
