Craftsman snow thrower starter rope broke


On a scale of 1-10 on the handman scale, I am a 5/6. After I stated my snow thrower this am, I had the pull handle and about 8" of rope that broke off. How is it to replace a broken starter rope on a Crafatman snow thrower? I've been searching for tips and read something about knowing about how tight the rope is coiled and watching not to get injured. Should I just cut my losses and take it in for service?

The recoil should remove from the machine with 4 or 6 bolts. You could then take it to a small engine shop and have them change the rope.
