How to Replace the Pull Cord

I have a 4HP B&S Model 10A902; Type 2139 E1; Code 99042255

Hey is there some good instructions on how to replace my pull cord on the B&S. I really appreciate the input.

Take the engine shroud off (should be 4 bolts holding it on). Wind up the rope spool the same direction it would turn when pulling the rope until it stops, then back it up until the hole in the rope spool lines up with the hole in the shroud. Feed the rope through the spool and housing, tie a knot on the spool end, and let the spool wind the rope onto it. Don't let it wind it all up before tying the handle on first. Reassemble and go!

No brand in particular that I recommend. Whatever they have at the hardware or mower repair store.
