Homelite Lawn Trimmer Tune Up

If you're having issues with your Homelite trimmer running or starting, you may need a good tune up. I got all my parts from Home Depot except the carb rebuild kit I got from Amazon. Here's some videos on how I did it. In the videos I show how to change the fuel lines, primer bulb, clean the spark arrester, and rebuild the carburetor.

have spark dos'nt start ? homelite 26cc

Since you have spark then you need gas or air. I made some videos on giving my Homelite a tune up and carb rebuild. Got all the parts form Home Depot and the carb rebuild kit from Amazon. Didn't cost much for all that.

why wont my homelite string trimmer start. It has spark and gas and air.

Something could be keeping it from getting the right mix of air and gas. It could be a crack in one of the fuel lines or primer bulb. Maybe the carb needs rebuilt. I made some videos on how to do all that. I got all my parts form Home Depot, except the carb rebuild kit I got from Amazon. Hope this helps.

I need to kno what the item number (so I can order) the line tensioner on my Poulan Pro Link line trimmer---PPB 335. It is a small plastic trimmer head cover. Do I have to order the whole trimmer head?

Your string head is part number 26 in the diagram. Home Depot's Garden department has a wide variety of parts including universal string heads and heads for Homelite, Ryobi, etc. and possibly one that will fit your machine. A lot of these trimmers have Poulan engine and trimmer head parts. See if you can get the complete assembly off the trimmer (if you haven't already) and take it with you to the HD and match it with a new one. The price of parts from an online supplier plus shipping will be almost as much as a complete replacement head. If you shop Ebay, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of weed trimmer parts on there and some good deals to boot.
