Trying to help my boy. He has a small tiller and when pull the starter it will not spin the engine very far and then will not wind back up. I told him the starter was tired. The engine has not run in probably 5 years and the engine is about 500 miles from here. Suggestions? It is a little 60000 series engine. Thanks in advance. J.

The pull start part of it can get rusty inside and that will cause that. I'd have him pull the front cover off and make sure the pull rope goes out and in like it should. While it is off he should be able to grab the square part and see if it spins freely or if it hang up. The end if the square part should have a small hole and if he lays it back so the hole points up he can pour some ATF in the hole to lube it up. I would also have him pull the spark plug out and make sure he can turn it over by hand 2 full turns. If he cannot then fill the cylinder with ATF and let ti sit a few days then pull the plug back out and see if it will spin over

probably just stuck from sitting so long, seen it many times. its usually cheaper and simpler for the do it yourselfers just get the complete recoil unit. if you take it off may just need cleaned and lubed ,but watch that spring it can be dangerous if not pay attention. wish you were closer give you some new rope, still have a lot various sizes here

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

This sounds about right to me as well. Once somebody looks around inside there, they'll be able to see if anything is broken. I'd bet replacement parts are readily available.

Anyone ever try to "fix" that rope before?

Sounds like it might have been broken at one time and the spring never got fully wound.

Most starters are pretty easy to fix but the failing most folks have is not putting enough tension on the spring to draw the rope back in. Easy fix if you know how but it's a bit counter-intuitive because you feel like you are over-winding the assembly.

Is there a mower shop anyplace near to him?
