How to replace a pull cord-starter
Your question is not clear, but it may help to know that you have to pre-load the recoil spring. To do this you give the spool a couple of rotations in the direction that would be pushing the rope out through the hole to the handle. Do that before you thread the end of the rope through the hole to the handle. It helps to start with a rope that is about 2 feet longer than you need. The rope will be trying to retract as you put a not in it to secure the handle. I pair of locking pliers or a sturdy spring clamp is handy to hold the rope while you tie the knot. Good luck!
