Hi I'm new to this site I have a qualcast TE30H and my pull cord has snapped. I have stripped it down to the clutch but can remove it can anyone tell me which way to turn it to loosen the clutch please any advice would be appreciated

Hi Gastricj and welcome to TGMF

Usually it would undo in the same direction as the engine turns when it's running, so it tightens itself when running.  in your case I believe it's anti clockwise. Most of these things have a arrow on them indicating the removal direction.

I took a picture of it but the file is too big and I've put it back together for now so can't show you the picture

I have no idea where you'll get the proper tool as I don't normally work on that brand. I know this doesn't help, but if one of my existing tools didn't fit I'd make one, or improvise in some other way.
