In this video I replace the starter pull cord on a Briggs & Stratton 650 series engine, which is attached to a walk behind mower. The mowers pull cord handle is attached to the mower handle assembly. The starter pull cord size for this engine is size 4.5, and the pull cord length is 7 feet. The length of the cord can very slightly and it depends on the stiffness of the cord. If the stiffness of the cord your using is very stiff, than it might bind a little when the cord winds into the starter assembly. If it does, than shorten the cord to 6.5 feet and try it again.
