Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
I Need to change the starter cord. How do I remove the cover?
Here is the instructions DIRECT FROM BRIGGS & STRATTON:
This is a relatively simple process, but you have to be VERY careful when doing this. The spring is long, under some tension and has sharp edges.Anytime you are dealing with the manual rewind starter assembly, there is risk of the spring coming out and possibly injuring yourself or others. If you do not feel comfortable performing this repair, I strongly suggest visiting one of our many authorized dealers in your area and have them do this for you.
You will have to remove the gas tank to get at the rewind and blower housing. Remove the entire blower housing and rewind assembly and turn it upside down.
NOTE:You do not have to drill out the rivets to get to the back of the rewind assembly. This is only necessary if you are removing the ENTIRE rewind assembly, (metal housing and all) and are separating it from the blower housing.
You'll need a pair of vise grips or a screw driver, some rewind rope, a long thin sharp tip flexible object (the wire from a coat hanger may work) and a lighter handy.

I believe this model has the gas tank on top, so you have to repove it and the oil dip stick and anything else to get to the engine cover, which is attached by for bolts. two in front and two in back, pull up and off and you will see your rope starter cord.
