Echo SRM 2100 starter pawl assembly removal

Hi everyone (1st time poster here),

I am trying to remover the starter pawl assembly (so that I can replace it) from the flywheel on the SRM 2100. How do I lock the flywheel shaft so that the nut on the shaft can be broken free? And is the nut on the shaft a regular thread or is it reverse thread?
Thanks for your time and advice.

Take the spark plug out and put some pull rope in the plug hole, with enough hanging out to pull it out later. Then turn the engine until the piston hits the pull rope and stops. Then you can take the nut loose. I believe it is standard right hand threaded, but not 100% certain.

Remove the spark plug, move the piston to the bottom of the stroke, load the cylinder with starter rope or any small rope(leave a little hanging out), now when you turn the nut the piston will try to compress the rope and stop, when finished remove the rope, using this method nothing gets damaged. Have a good one. Geo

Thanks to the both of you for your inspired suggestion re the rope in the combustion chamber. It worked like a charm.
