Look on the engine for a model number. It will identify the pull cord mechanism. Have to have the engine make and model number to do any good.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.
Numbers look close to a Briggs engine. Can you verify the number?(NNN) NNN-NNNN02 , this is what number should look like. Is this horizontal or vertical crankcase? any chance of attaching a picture? Using the tree or paperclip icon above the typing bar.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

horizontal number 84101 then in small print 021702.


somewhere on the mower it said fiat, so it was made in italy


unable to attach a picture at this point

Hi Curtis


In my request for help, what I was expecting in reply was advice as to which company might stock what I was seeking.


As the problem as been sorted, do not need to further the quest.
