How do I setup my rewind start on my Evinrude 2hp outboard?

I have a 1975 Evinrude 2hp outboard (Model 2504D) and I took it apart years ago to work on it but never got around to it. I'm setting it back up but I forget how to set the rewind starter back up. The pull cord is attached to a pulley. The pulley has a notch in it to line it up with the spring which is installed on a drum. How exactly do I install it so it works again? Do I wind the pull cord around the pulley completely and not around the drum? Or do I wind it around the drum? When installing the pulley do I wind it backwards against the spring so it retracts? I believe I do but I have totally forgotten. Just pretend you are trying to explain this to somebody who has never done this before because its been so long I have totally forgotten. Thanks for any help.

I'd try preloading the spring with the pull cord fully extended. Check the operation of the recoil and adjust if necessary.

Good Luck!
