    I was just given an old 22" Craftsmen model#536.886530. It has an electric start (plug in type) but it needs the pull start assembly. Anyone know where I can get one?

    The guy that gave it to me (guy I work with) had it since new and just got a new one. Said he's never had any problems with it except for breaking the pull start two years ago.

    I tried Sears but they don't have the PN on their website.

    Sears part #590646 $32.22, is the whole rewind assembly trashed or is the pull cord just broken?

    You have to search for the engine model #HS50-67326K, as Sears considers them two different items.

    You're the man, thanks. I think the whole assembly is broke but I'm not sure, haven't been able to look at it yet.

    It's a Tecumseh Motor.

    If I remember there should be 4 bolts holding the assembly on, it will be obvious if the whole thing is FUBAR. Rewinding a new cord while a pain in the ass is wicked cheaper.

    Depends on how old it is- Sears has had many different manufacturer's making their stuff over the years.

    They can generally supply parts for almost anything- even my 20+ year old blower. I miss the service stores...some Sears stores have a service counter who can also help you when in doubt.

    Not much longer, with the Kmart buyout they are phasing out the most parts & service and going to internet parts ordering.
