Since you have already removed the rivets, just go to the numbered portion of the instructions below and follow them to replace the rope.
To put the recoil assembly back on the blower housing, you will need to obtain a pop rivet tool and rivets or or 4 very short machine screws with lock washers and nuts and insert them from inside the blower housing so the flywheel doesn't hit the ends, and tighten them securely

Here is the instructions DIRECT FROM BRIGGS & STRATTON:

This is a relatively simple process, but you have to be VERY careful when doing this. The spring is long, under some tension and has sharp edges. Anytime you are dealing with the manual rewind starter assembly, there is risk of the spring coming out and possibly injuring yourself or others. If you do not feel comfortable performing this repair, I strongly suggest visiting one of our many authorized dealers in your area and have them do this for you.
You will have to remove the gas tank to get at the rewind and blower housing. Remove the entire blower housing and rewind assembly and turn it upside down.
NOTE:You do not have to drill out the rivets to get to the back of the rewind assembly. This is only necessary if you are removing the ENTIRE rewind assembly, (metal housing and all) and are separating it from the blower housing.
You'll need a pair of vise grips or a screw driver, some rewind rope, a long thin sharp tip flexible object (the wire from a coat hanger may work) and a lighter handy.

  1. Take the pulley and start to turn it so that the rope becomes loose.
  2. Remove the rope.
  3. Once the pulley is all the way out, with the most tension, either use the screwdriver between the spokes of the pulley, or use the vise grips to hold the pulley in place; be careful not to place too much pressure on the vise grips, the plastic pulley may break!
  4. Make sure that the hole in the pulley lines up with the hole on the rewind assembly.
  5. Using the wire from the coat hanger, push the rope through the hole of the rewind and pulley. Pull the rope through the pulley and tie it off. Now use the lighter to burn the end of the rope to prevent the not from coming off.
  6. Now, remove the screwdriver or vise grips, while holding on to the pulley.
  7. SLOWLY let go of the pulley and the rope should feed back into the pulley as you do this.

You can prime the engine by taking cover off the air filter and removing the air filter. Cover attached by one screw. Spray starter fluid behind the white-plastic guard. Before attempting to start you must put back filter and cover. If not, the air/fuel mix will not be correct and the engine will quickly die out.

check the pressure for each of the clutch packs through the test ports with a pressure gauge, sounds like you are losing pressure when the oil is hot and thin. Have the engine at running temp when testing,
also test the charge pump pressure for system pressure.

Model 256c means it's a Caterpillar. Did you look under the seat? Since you apparently don't have an owner's manual, you need to get one. Manual should be stored on the machine in a weatherproof case.
