Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight
I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight".
Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in.
They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord.
Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle.
Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord.
This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.
