Craftsman trimmer starter rope replacement

I have a Craftsman 32cc gas trimmer model #358.795100 and the starter rope broke. How do I get to the pulley to replace the rope? I seem to be stuck at the clutch assy. It looks like if I could get that off I could remove the housing and access the pulley.

ok take the spark plug out and run a long piece of rope or flexable plastic tubeing into spark plug hole so as to stop sthe engine from turning all the way around.With a long torx driver (I think its a T-20) take off the clutch drum.Then take the nut that holds the clutch shoes.Then the recoil cover will come off.When putting back together don't forget the spacer that fits around the crankshaft.This buts aganist the flywheel to hlod it tight.

I'm SORRY don't know where my mind is today,I forget to tell you where the torx screw is they've got it hidden.
It's in the bottom of the hole that the drive shaft goes into the clutch drum

On the briggs, just remove the engine shroud.
