Re: Damn pull cord!
Where does it break? Does it look frayed? I wouldn't recomend the cable, been there, it will saw right through any plastic it contacts. I have seen the hose clamps Polaris uses cut a rope, rotate the ears on them away from the rope path. Also you can go to a home inprovement store and they make a coil spring for bending tubing, take off the pull handle and feed the rope through it. Replace handle and the spring becomes a great guide. This thing looks like a coiled screen door spring with one end flared and about 12" long. I assume you are using pull cord rope, if not you should it is tighter woven and resists abration better. Hope this helps.
