You have 3 screws to take out. 1 by the trigger and 2 on the side cover ( one on top and 1 on bottom).
The first thing you want to do is remove spark plug. After plug is removed carefully separate the housing paying attention not to lose the little spring holding the trigger when it comes apart. You can do this with the bar/chain on, but easier to handle without it. After it comes apart you can remove spring clip holding flywheel on. Be careful to lift the flywheel straight up slowly making sure the coil spring does not come up with the flywheel. If you just move it back and forth a little while moving the flywheel off the shaft. Take the rope off and measure it. I think its about 18" but try to measure the one on there. Make sure you knot the rope leaving a small tail so when the knot is tightened it has a little room to move without coming undone.After you wind the rope (clockwise) leave about 1/2 '' of rope sticking up in the notch on side of reel . Slide the wheel down and make sure the bottom notch on wheel is going to engage the coil spring when the wheel is turned.Replace spring clip on the shaft. If you have a problem with the clip, you may not be down far enough with the wheel. Turn the wheel about 1 1/2 to 2 full turns putting tension on the spring and making sure the rope sticking up is close to the the hole you need to string it through to tie in the handle. After you feed the rope through the hole (making sure you are adding more pressure on the spring as you pull the rope out, enough rope to work comfortably with the handle I take a fat bladed screwdriver and stick it down in between the wheel and housing to stop it from unwinding. Then string it through the handle with the same kind of knot used for the flywheel. After your handle is secure you can remove the screw driver and see how it works before re-assembling. Putting the housing back together requires patience making sure the housing fits over the flywheel and trigger area goes together nice.
Tips: If you need aid in stringing the rope through the handle I take about 6" of electrical tape wrap it around the end of the rope about 5 times and make sure as you wind the tape is moving towards the end of the rope and you can have a tail off the end of the rope to send through the handle. Good Luck

1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble
2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru
3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out
Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced
4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor
5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.
6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.
7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.
8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released
9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit

try taking plug out to see if it turns then.if not take off pull cord assembley to see if something has come loose and jammed flywheel, failing that could possibly have snapped the piston ring and jammed. oh yes one last thing check clutch if you have chain brake on and clutch is jammed obviously wont turn.
