Hello, i'm new to the forum. I'm thinking about replacing the rewind starter, i bought the snowblower used, it was already broken. There are no screws or bolts with this one… I would like some tips on replacing the rewind starter…

Are there parts diagrams for your engine, which might help show how it goes together?

You could remove the shroud it's mounted to (probably what I'd start with). Alternately, you could try drilling out the rivets, but that seems a bit extreme/premature, without at least removing it first to see what's hidden.

You just need to remove the plastic above the shroud and the one to the left. their are 2 or 3 fastener's holding the blower cover on. Its not that bad to get off.

This isn't too bad, but it's a bit of work to just replace a rope.
