Usually you have to take the shroud that contains the recoil starter assembly off to get to it. You may have to take it apart to fix the rope. If it broke on the end nearest the starter, you probably have enough rope left to reuse it. Usually they break right at the starter, due the the constant bending and rubbing. Pay attention to how it comes apart, and make sure to rewind your spring before putting the rope back on the pulley, otherwise it will not wind back up.
If it is just the rope that broke you can take the recoil to any lawn mower repair shop and they will repair your recoil by replacing the needed parts or replace the rope. You do not need to take the whole unit to the lawn mower repair shop. FYI a NEW honda recoil assy ranges from $32.00 - $68.00 depending on net source.
Hi Greg. Walk into your nearest Lawn Mower parts supply with your engine model number (usually on the recoil) and they will have the replacement part or repair your old one. It is less expesive to have the old one repaired unless the support struts have broken. 2200 PSI should have a Honda GX160.
