My Yard Machine Tiller starter rope will not rewind - it is an MTD engine the model is 21A-121R900. Once I take the cover off I can't get to the rewind mechanism.

you can either drill the rivet out, or inside the shroud there are metal tabs that you can bend out, but be careful as not to break them off. Hope this helped Tim
