I have tried to do this many times and have yet to suceed, believe me it's not worth the fustration and the extra days in hell you will spend from cussing.
Take to a repair shop, they can do it quickly and cheaply when you consider how difficult this is for the ordinary person. (me)

SOURCE: broken recoil spring
A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.
Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

If looking for parts your OM is of little value. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) here (only one PP255 listed):
Rear vibration (isolation spring)s appear to be item 5 or 59 on the "Exterior Assembly" print.
Poulan replacement OM.
There is contact us number in the OM if you want to contact Poulan. HTH
