Pull start cord got pinched. Dumb me took off


Yes you can put the spring back in but it takes patience. Wind the spring inside the pully first. Then install the cord on the outside of the pully. Make sure you wind both in correct direction. You probably should replace the cord while you have it apart. The parts would be listed by the engine brand and model number, not by MTD. Probably a Briggs & Stratton engine? You can go to their web site :www.briggsandstratton.com to get part numbers. Or you can try a place like www.jackssmallengines.com

What is the model and type # on the ENGINE, not on the mower? Probably right above the spark plug, assuming it's a Briggs and Stratton.
