To replace the pull cord line:

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case, purchase rope of the correct length (or cut) and the correct diameter at your local lawn/garden store, then:
1. Disconnect the long drive shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts). You may need to disconnect a wire to the kill-switch at this time.
3. Pull the cord until it stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.
6. Feed line through the recoil housing and into the recoil. Pass line through the hole in the recoil and knot the end. Trip to about .25 inch tail. Pull the rope through the grab handle and single or double knot this.
7. Remove the wedge and allow the spring to pull the rope back into the recoil.
8. If it does not completely recoil, either your rope is too long or you will need to add a "wind" to your spring buy removing the line and wind back 1 more turn. Retry.

Good luck!

Take plug out turn blower to where plug hole is down pull starter cord many times until all fuel is out. Clean plug, install, try starting without priming or choking. If no start try priming just until you get fuel to engine. Try starting again. If this works when storing blower leave fuel cap slightly loose in very hot weather until you want to start.
