Question Toro 20071 Getting Pull Rope Replaced

My son has been cutting grass for the last couple of years and is about to head off to college so that means I am about to be reintroduced to my machine. First thing I noticed was that the self propell wasn't working and also that the pull rope was hanging half out loose on the deck. I figure that I could tackle the loose rope but not sure what size bolts are used to hold the plastic top on I have gone through all of my tools and don't have one to size. I believe it is supose to be a 10/32 but just not positive and wanted to be sure before buying a new tool. On other matter is it better to just let a pro look at the self propell - I have replaced belt to no use but the transmission just seems loose overall. Thanks

Please post the engine model numbers. Normally those nuts are 1/4 or 5/16.
Could it be that the rope is just not attached to the holder usually on the handle. Have a good one. Geo

Engine-Tecumseh, Lv195-362089D. But I'm talking about the Plastic top has three screws that hold the cover on. I know I can get the recoil piece off if I can get to it. Thanks!

10/32 is a 5/16 my problem is that the only parts manual I could find for the 20071 model said 10/32 but it wasn't clear in the drawings if these were the screws on the top plate or not. I was just trying to verify before buying a new socket.
