pull cord replacement

I have a circa 1969, 21'' sensation with 3.5 Briggs & Stratton motor. It has been in my family since it was purchased. It has started on the first or 2nd pull after sitting idle for 8 months every winter in maine. this season i broke the pull cord on the 1st pull. i have access to the cord assembly, but sense it will ''Jesus'' apart in pieces (?).
would some kindly talk me thru the process to replace this original cord?
also, are there 'points' that should be replaced or cleaned and gaped?
thanks a bunch, jim
