William, could not find your exact model, the links below should help as a lot of blowers and string trimmers pull ropes are changed using similar method.

Hello Stacy, The reason two stoke engines run oil in the gas is for lubrication. By not mixing oil in the gas and running the unit may have scored the cylinder causing low compression. It may be time for a new blower. If in doubt, purchase a compression tester from a local auto parts store. They simply screw in the same threads that the spark plug does. Once threaded in, pull starter rope several times and observe reading. You should have at least 60 psi cold. If your reading is significantly lower, you will need a new cylinder and piston and wont be worth doing. Another method is to remove the muffler and look inside cylinder with a flashlight and look for scratches on cylinder wall. Hope this helped.
Partial disassembly of the machine will be required to access/diagnose the exact problem. The starter/recoil unit goes on top of the flywheel and the flywheel is on the engine shaft. The obstacles will be removing the main cover (and getting it back on correctly). If you have never done this, them maybe take pictures as you disassemble it to help you reassemble. Once you reach the starter/recoil unit, you will see how it works and be able to resolve the problem. Some of these units have inferior design and engineering flaws where they mate nylon parts with metal and of course, the nylon doesn't hold up. Post back for more help if needed once you get to the starter unit.
1 Remove the cover from the side of the blower that contains
the pull start. This usually involves removing the self-tapping screws
that join the two halves of the blower housing together.
Remove the broken rope from the starter pulley. Usually the
rope is attached to the pulley with a simple overhand knot; just grab
the knot and pull the rope back through the hole in the pulley.
Sometimes the rope is attached to the pulley with a staple or some other
fastener, which you'll have to remove first.
Remove the handle from the replacement rope, if it's already attached.
Thread the end of the rope opposite the handle through the
hole in the starter pulley, working from the inside of the pulley (the
side facing in toward the engine).
Fasten the rope to the pulley. If it attaches with a knot,
simply tie an overhand knot, pull it tight and trim off any excess rope
sticking out of the knot. If it attaches with a fastener, replace the
Wrap the rope counterclockwise around the pulley until the pulley is full; this usually involves one or two wraps.
Thread the free end of the rope through the hole in the blower housing.
Replace the blower housing and screw it in place.
Trim off excess rope, leaving about 6 inches of rope protruding from the blower housing.
Attach the handle to the starter rope. This typically
involves threading the rope through one or two holes in the handle and
securing with an overhand knot.
Same problem here.After snapping a couple fins off the flywheel trying to lock it with a screwdriver, I had an idea that worked quite well.I used an oil filter wrench (designed like pliers) Item #36778 at harbor freight.The thin design held the flywheel well (very tight fit,had to force past the plastic housing) while I used a socket and power handle.Worked for me and used it when torquing the crankshaft extension nut tight again.
You have to find a way to push the starter. It normally gets all stuck due to grease. One push with a screwdriver on the actual starter (The thing the rope turns) should wind the whole cord up. If not, clean it. Alot of oil/chunky-ness gets trapt when your using it.
I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope through from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain
