I need to replace the nylon pull rope on my log splitter.  It's an older 
(probably about 20 years) Briggs, vertical shaft, 5HP with a full 
plastic shroud over the motor.  It looks like the gas tank is built into 
the shroud, but I haven't looked closely.  Anyway, the cord is all 
frayed and I need to replace it, or have it replaced.  I haven't dug out 
the manual yet, but wanted to get a sense for how much trouble it is to 
do it myself.  If it's a PITA or I would need a special puller I might 
just tow it down to the local small engine place and let them do it.
