Homelite 'Yard Broom' Leaf Blower
The rope has broken on my leaf blower. I can get to the spool and have replaced the rope with a standard replacement and it is too big (diameter). Is there a smaller diameter rope available? My Lowe's doesn't have one. Second, the notch where the rope anchors is on the outside edge of the spool and the new rope wants to come loose every time I try to start the engine. It could be the the rope is too big for the notch or that I did not make the rope long enough to make enough winds around the spool before it reaches its end or both. Are there any "secrets" to replacing the rope that a novice like me would not know?
