Replacing Pull Cord on Compact 20

This should be super simple, but I've been struggling to replace the starter rope in my Ariens Compact 20 with a B&S 12D133 engine.

I have been following a video on Youtube. I can't post the link, but it's titled "HOW TO REPAIR Riveted Pull Start on Briggs & Stratton Snowblower Engine PART 1/2".

The engine on mine is smaller, but looks similar.

So far, I've removed the cover with the primer bulb/choke handle, the cover over the carb, the cover over the starter gear, and loosened the cover with the fuel shutoff.

I removed the 3 10 mm bolts that hold the cowling and have loosened the bolts holding the carb. The cowling seems like it should just lift off, but it's sticking on something.

Are there any tricks to getting the cowling off so I can replace the cord?

Thanks!

If its the engine I am thinking. The bottom of the cover may drag on the snowblower. You have to dish it out. And some finagling around the carb area.

Thanks for the response!

Perhaps I need to fight with the carb a little more. It seemed like it was clearing that OK, but there might be a lip that I can't see from the angle it's at.
