Angry Pull cord replacement for B&S mower

I have a walk behind mower with a B&S Quantum XM 4hp motor. The pull cord broke from age and I have been trying to fix it. I am evidently unaware of how to get the right tention in the spring so it won't draw in any cord. Help would be appreciated, I'm just learning how to work on these things, little thing like this makes ya feel dumb. Thanks again.

With the cover off, wind up the rope spool in the engine top until it stops, then back it off 1 round until the hole in the spool lines up with the hole in the cover. Hold the spool in place, insert the new rope (with handle tied to other end) and tie a knot in the end, and let the spool wind the rope up.
