Learn how to rewind a Victa pull start.
- Flat Head Screwdriver
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- Replacement Cord If Required
Firstly, turn off the fuel and disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor.
Then unscrew the top cover and remove it along with the fuel tank.
Once the pull start is exposed you may simply pry the cord up and rewind it as shown in the video.
If the cord has snapped or needs replacing it’s as simple as cutting the old one out and putting the new one in before rewinding as the video demonstrates. Wind only 5-6 times before checking if the cord has been wound to tightly; without caution the pull start spring may snap, which is a more advanced and expensive repair.
Once cord is rewound, reassemble mower.
