Hello all! I have a ride a matic with a kohler on it. The rope it came with seems too large in diameter and short. I get 1.25 wraps. Seeme like 2 would be better. Already gave myself a black eye getting smacked by the knot. What diameter, length, and type of rope seems to work best? Thanks to all!

Welcome to GTT :wave:

 

 

I usually make my pull rope long enough to get 2 good wraps around the pulley.

You will need some good 1/4'' Rope. Most L&G shops should stock 1/4'' but if you dont have any luck locally I stock some in my store

Thank you sir. Mine is much larger diameter. It really hurt when it hit my eye.
