Question about Mtd LAWN MOWER PART # 683-0275A PEDAL Assembly-DECK
I have an MTD Yard-Man (model 2476.371060, serial # 1A100C10904) maybe 8 years old or so. I went to start it first time this season. It starts with a pull string. It started right away but the pull string broke inside the housing. It broke only an inch or so from where it attaches to a rotary wheel. I took off the top cover and pulled out the knotted remnant of the string with a needlenose. I intended to thread the rest of the string through the same opening but it doesn't thread. I thought I'd have to remove a vented cover to thread it correctly, but lo-and-behold, the cover is rivetted onto the engine housing. Plus I think the rotary wheel must be turned a few time before the rope is attached to prime the tension (not true??). I don't see how I can do these things without taking that vented cover off.
Is ther some way I can fix this myself?

There should be 3 -3/8 or 7/16" bolts on the side of mower (where the spark plug is, there should be one) the other two will be just opposit of the two. Remove bolts and housing should be free.You might to remove any cables to free up any slack.

The operator presence bail must be in the run position to release the flywheel brake. If you can't pull the rope with the bail in the run position, your rope is fouled. You will have to remove the shroud and take it to a repair shop.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.
