The recoil assembly is part of the air shroud - no need to pull the
flywheel.  It engages the inside of the flywheel nut or a separate ratchet
held on by the flywheel nut.  Likely four screws and it's off the shroud.
Once it's off, you should be able to wind the spring up and slip the new
rope into the reel without too much trouble.  Take it off and you'll see how
simple it is.

I need to replace the nylon pull rope on my log splitter.  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.
