How to replace starter cup on ariens st724

I have an Ariens ST724 snowblower (Model #924075 Serial # 005629) with a pull start where it slips and will not catch to turn over the engine to start. Finally got a new starter cup but was wondering how to replace it. I've already removed the starter recoil assembly. Now do I try and clamp the old cup to the housing so the shaft won't turn to remove the nut? Put a bar into the auger so it will not spin and turn off the nut?

I've purchased a torque wrench to set the nut at 40 ft lbs once I get the old one off.

Second problem: After removing the old spark plug to change it, a tiny stone pebble fell into the hole where the plug goes. (SIGH: One problem after another with this blower). Any easy way to get it out? Or am I basically SCREWED? I AM going to try and get this blower running pebble or not today.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are about to be hit with up to a foot of snow today and into tomorrow.

post a pic of that first item at hand, second question if you got a stone in the hole. then you are going to have to remove the head and go fishing for it. I don't mess around with those tec engines to much.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Not That Tough, Remove the Recoil Shroud. There is a 3/4 nut holding the Starter Cup on the Crank. I get a 3/4 socket on it, and then Place another deep socket between the Electric starter flywheel teeth and the chassis of the snowblower to hold the flywheel and crank so you can remove the nut that holds the starter cup on.
