how do you replace it with out pulling the motor?
Should be hole in the side so you can get a socket on the far bolt.
You have to remove three of the mounting bolts and turn the motor. I broke a rope last year and could not figure it out either. It was still under warranty so I had the Lesco dealer repair it. He told me how it had to be done. Not a real friendly design.
ant for the right price ill make it better lol i have the gas axe!!!!!!!
DUSTYCEDAR: next time u and kelly go fishing let me know.
next week is lookin good ant
Grandview is right, the only way to get it off is to unbolt the engine and turn it. if the unit is older than a year check the engine mounting tabs, if you are not cleaning the fertilizer off frequently you may find that the engine will oxidize and the mounts will deteriorate right off of the engine. get a flashlight and take a look at the right front mount and crankcase.
it is a pain, but only takes about 10 minutes. I saw a newer magnum this summer that looked like they made a few changes to make changing the pull rope easier.
My PG Magnum was purchased in March 2006.
Yesterday morning the starter rope broke. I can verify that it is a royal PITA to fix. Even though they have holes in the frame to access the recoil bolts, you cannot remove it as is. There is not enough clearance against the frame, so you have to unbolt the motor and turn it slightly. Not friendly at all. The hardest part really is getting to the engine bolts. Very small quarters to work with.
cut the frame works great
