Can't engage pull start on 1988 Merc 5hp outboard

I was considering buying a 1988 Merc 5hp outboard but the owner forgets the way to engage the pull start (if there is a way). The shifter is in neutral, the throttle has no locking device that I can find but the pull rope freewheels when pulled.

Any ideas?
