I have a 1979 4 hp Chrysler and don’t know how to remove the starting rope from the cover. What’s the procedure.

The rubber handle, remove the metal insert and then unthread the line.
You might use a pair of vice grips to hold the line so it doesn't unwind on the spool.

There should be a plastic cover over the metal insert or bar holding the line that you just pop out.I always tie a slip knot in the line to keep it from disappearing down the rabbit hole.

Thanks you guy’s a lot. I thought the medal insert might come forward but didn’t want to fool around and destroy something if that wasn’t the way.
