Chipper/shredder starter and carburetor repair

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
June 25th, 2010

I have a Sears model 987.799931 chipper/shredder, with engine model 143.961005. Two problems: 1) the motor is not starting. I've replaced the spark plug, oil, air filter, and fuel. The engine tried to start after I sprayed some cleaner in, but only briefly. At this point, I'm pretty sure that the problem is in the carburetor. Is this something I can repair or replace myself? Please send instructions if this is doable.

2) my recoil starter rope just broke. I have recoil starter number 590704. The rope in this particular starter is held in place by a staple rather than a knot. I can't get it out, or I'd just replace the cord. Any way around buying a whole new starter?
