Replacement starter rope

Recommended Posts

Just figured this item number may help if anyone wants to replace the starter rope(s) on their engines. Especially the ones where the engine and or tool has been refurbished or rebuilt.  It closely matches the original braided rope.

It's fairly inexpensive and 100 ft goes a long way.

Well I give up, I couldn't find any German made 7/64" (2.8mm) braided starter cord over here without stripes, nor could I find the OEM Stens buy it from, there was some similar looking stuff from the Shenzhen Market if you don't mind the long wait.

 

Anyway I don't like using them but Bezos.com have it for £12.11 including shipping & customs fees from the US, not a bad price, so it's been ordered.

Not sure that I’m understanding the exact nature of the question but Stens products are distributed in the UK by

It wasn't really a question, John found some starter cord that looks similar to the original type used by O&R, i.e. a diamond braided cord with no stripes.

Also Stens don't actually make the cord themselves, they source it from Germany & re-brand it. I was trying to find a European brand that have the same type available, as it can't be very cost effective to ship it from Germany to the US then the UK. :dunno:

I have had a look at the Hi-Level website but they don't seem to give prices, do you need to register to find out?

Are they the same diameter as the original ones? I bought some similar (but slightly larger) wooden balls a few years ago, I only ended up using one as Webhead surprised me by including some original ones with some parts I bought from him.
