SOURCE: broken pull cord
ur going to have to unmount the the motor from the shaft
step 1. Unbolt throttle housing
step 2. now with that out of the way u should see a clamp holding the motor to the shaft, loosen and pull the shaft out, there will be a cable, so make sure u have it lined up so it goes back into place
step 3, look at the back of the motor, u should see screws going into the plastic housing (coming in from back going into plastic)
step 4. once that is off pull the broken part of the cord out
step 5. wind up the starter coil, (it will only wind up one way) its spring loaded so be carful, once it stops back it off 1 full turn
step 6. u will see a hole for the cord in the housing and in the coil, make sure they are lined up
step 7. insert the cord through both holes, tie it as tighttttt as possible, then let the spring do the rest
step 8. put it back together

You have to take four allen screw out of the plastic that holds the engine on. There is also one by the spark plug that needs to come out. Once the engine is loose, you have to unplug one wire and unscrew the other. Then the engine should come off. Then loosen the two allen screws holding the pulley in and it will come out.

SOURCE: Replacing pull cord on weedeater
there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.

the rope and spring both have thier respective place in the housing for thier mountings they can be rewound by hand and reassembled with success,hint oppisite end of spring has a anchor point on the housing while one end is secured by a cup like screw mounting,to create the retracting force for retrival of the pull start rope its tricky if haven't done it before but you learn by trying Good luck Steve

Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.
