Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

this is not easy , but you need to wind the recoil spring in the housing

then wind the rope, in the pulley

after that you need to attach it together , w/o loosing the spring tension

much easier to replace the recoil start , $23.00

here is a video on how to do
