Re: Lawn Mower Pull Cord
Usually, replacing the pull cord isn't that big a deal. I would recommend starting with Google to find an owners manual for your mower or go to JD and get one directly from them.
I've replaced a few cords in my time and the primary concern and danger is the recoil spring. It is easiest to pull the cord out to full extension, then clamp the reel so that it cannot retract. From there you remove the old cord and install the new. Make sure that you dissect the knots so that the replacement cord is properly secured to the spool. A couple of square knots isn't going to cut it, they will slip out.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
