Rope would not retract, housing on spring was issue.
1. Removed old spring and casing.
2. Installed new spring and casing.
3. Wound the spring with rope assembly to proper tension.
4. Tested it to insure it would retract properly (this took some doing to get it perfect, actually unwound it one revolution per time to test in order to insure proper tension, too tight and it would not retract properly, too loose and it would not retract at all)
5. Put it all back together and tested tension the final time.

Hedge trimmer recoil spring
The most annoying part of this repair is getting to the spring. After you drain the gas out of it, you flip it over and start removing the Torx screws that hold the covers on it. When you get to the round disc that is bolted to the engine crankshaft, you need to remove the spark plug and stick some rope down the piston cylinder. Now when you turn the disc to remove it, the crank is held in place by the rope you have in the cylinder and it comes off, without goofing up the engine. After that, the spring is accessible. I recommend checking out You-Tube for a view of one of the many videos.

Just keep the screws in a way that you remember which goes where. I scratched in the plastic where the short and long screws went, You may want to right them down, if you care about little scratches in the plastic

Parts Used:
Starter Pulley - 530071786
Starter Spring - 545008010
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Nutdriver, allen and torx bits, maybe a leatherman
Coil spring slipped from worn notch in starter pulley.
removed 3 allen screws from rear cover

removed 4 torx screws from forward side of engine housing releasing engine from shaft.

disconnected throttle cable from carburetor

set motor aside, removed 2 screw from pulley keepers

remove pulley and spring.

place new spring in metal housing, taking care to hold spring in place in its housing place the unit into the recess in engine housing so that the exposed hook on spring goes into its slot in the recess.

oay close attention to how the pull string is attached to the pulley or take a photo of it.
remove the string from the old pulley and attach it to the new one.

place the pulley overtop of the spring so that the hook on the inner part of the coil spring goes into the slot on the pulley.

put the pulley keepers and screw back in

The tricky part is winding the spring so that it will roll up the string a youtube video can show you better than I can explain it.

re-connect the throttle cable and re-install the engine in the reverse order that you disassembled it.

    Exactly what we needed!
    The part was exactly what we needed! It came quicker than expected! Great service! Our local repair shop didn’t want to do the service. Glad we found the part! It saved us a bunch of money!

    Worked as expected, easy repair, great part
    The spring is new and sealed in a bag, perfect fit for the weed eater, works great. The parts break down diagram of the weed eater was also a big help. It made it easier to disassemble the machine and fix the spring myself.

    Shipping delay
    The parts were all correct, new parts and we're listed as in stock. It "shipped" the next day (they printed a shipping label) but did not get to the post office for a week. Once it got there it arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Ereplacementparts never contacted me about the delay or gave a reason. I suspect they didn't actually have the parts in inventory and had to get them from a supplier before they could ship it. Might buy again but don't expect on time delivery.
