Dis-assembling the Homelite trimmer 26cs

Hi Guys

This is my first post here, please be easy on me.
I have a Homelite Trimmer 26cs that the rope would not retract. I messed with the rope a little and the rope finally retract. However now the trimmer won't start... I am trying to take it apart to investigate what the issue is however I do not know how to dis-assemble the part. Anyone know how to open up this part and anyone know where is the trimmer issue?

Thanks in advance.

That part has nothing to do with why it will not start.
How old it it?
Been using ethenal fuel?
Most often it's a fuel issue caused from using Ethenal fuel.
It will distroy fuel lines, gel up carberators.

It unscrews in the direction indicated but I agree that it isn't the cause of it not starting. Did you check to see if the plug is sparking?

Engine

Does the engine crank when you pull the rope?

Hi

This trimmer is about 3 yrs old, been using Shell regular/premium gas.
When I pull the rope, it does not seem to crank the engine.

Hi, thanks for your suggestion.
I may try to check the spark plug later.

However the pulley (not sure what is calls) seems to have some play in it, also, the hook seems to be off. That is why I am trying to open it up to see what's going on.

Ok, that makes sense if you can't get the engine to turn over. It takes a special tool to remove the part but you can use a drift pin and hit it with a hammer in the direction required to remove it to knock it loose.
