Spray starter fluid in the air filter. This should work.

SOURCE: the pull rope to start
The BL510 has 5 combination torx/flat blade screws that separate the pull starter and shaft from the engine. 2 you should be able to access with the torx bit. The others you will likely need the screw driver.
Separate the housing from the engine. Disconnect the leads for the electrical engine kill. You can do this job with the throttle cable still attached--just be careful to not separate too far.
On the shaft tube there is a metal circular clip. Carefully pry it off evenly with a screw driver and set aside. Remove 4 more torx screws holding a metal plate that keeps 2 plastic pulleys secure (one inside the other--inner is a gear engagement).
There are 2 recoil springs and 2 pulleys. The smaller diameter pulley is inside the larger and has a wider stiffer and shorter recoil spring (this is used to engage the magneto when you pull the string). Pull both pulleys and the small recoil spring out being careful to try and leave the narrow recoil spring inside its metal housing. Note that when you remove the outer pulley that has the rope, there is a keyway that engages with the end of the narrow recoil spring (I have photos, but all are much larger than 150kb--the largest allowed). I suggest you take a photo at this point so if you happen to unseat the very long and narrow rope recoil spring, you will orient it correctly.
If you happen to pull the longer narrower spring out and it springs out like a jack in the box-it is easily put back in after the cussing. Start at the hook end and carefully recoil it back in turning it over itself one revolution at a time within the housing. Within a minute or so, it should be back to normal...
WIth the new rope, tie a knot on one end and insure at least 6 " longer than what you need. You will thread the rope through the outer pulley from the inside leaving about 1/4" on the outer side (just enough to come through the hole. Engage the pulley from the keyway slot back on the spring end. Load the spring by turning it clockwise, being careful to keep pressure on the pulley. Rotate it about 5-6 revolutions. Here's the tricky part. Pull the rope through the eyelet while maintaining force on the pulley (I pulled it through the eyelet separately, they pushed the eyelet back in). A tweezers or needlenose pliers will help pull it through. Once through, pull the rope all the way through to the knot, then allow the pulley to recoil the rope back in. This will relieve some tension on the coil. You should have an idea of the tension on the pulley. Make sure the plastic plug holding the eyelet is back in. Put the metal plate and screws back on. Position the second recoil spring for the magneto back in the pulley and position the eccentric pulley back on. Tie the T-handle on making sure there is enough tension when fully retracted to hole. Push the metal clip back on the shaft.
Reassemble. You likely will have to insure orientation of the square cable and magneto pickup when pushing the halves back together. Remember to put the terminals for the engine kill back on before pushing together, and make sure the throttle cable is positioned like before.
Sorry cannot load the pictures.
