Replacing pull start on Sears 5 HP lawn mower

I have a Sears 5 HP self propelled 22 inch lawn mower and the rope pull start needs replacing. I removed the top cover and noticed that the spring mechanism is rivited to the motor. Is there another way to just replace the rope pull or do I need to drill out the rivits and re-rivit in place?

It should only be riveted to the engine shroud which is removable usually by 4 bolts then you can access the inside of the assy and replace the pull cord.
