Ya, it's really that easy. Take the engine off the truck, remove the EZ start assembly, and bolt the pull start on in its place.

ya that is about it just reseal the pull start onto the new engine with high heat copper gasket.  and while you are at it i would recommend that you use electric motor cleaner on the outside to clean all the dirt and other junk off to increase heat exchange which increases performance.

I strongly disagree with this. You don't have to seal the pull start to the backplate at all! You are supposed to seal the backplate to the crankcase, NOT the pull starter to the backplate. Since the OP won't be removing the backplate (you don't have to remove the backplate to add pull starter), than he doesn't have to worry about it.
