From what I read you need a new rewind clutch and the spring and cord go into the housing. Briggs is easy to fix. contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you what you need or you can send it to me and I will repair it very cheap!! Parts are available at almost any small engine parts place.

SOURCE: broken recoil spring
A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.
Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.
