Thats what they're saying.
You could do it with the engine running but you'll need to use some insulated eagle beaks or similar.

You can but you risk getting a belt if you do it with the engine running.

If you do it whilst running use rubber coated tools, that way you won't get a belt.

Arh i was thinking on the lines of pulling off the spark cap,holding the plastic hood and pull starting it,that way i am only holing the pull start cable and steadying the engine holding on to the hood,should not get a belt from that?

If you have hold of the ht lead and try and start the engine you could still get a belt. Try rest the plug against the block and watch for a spark.
