You twist the plate holding the blades and it will lift off, then you turn the blade plate upside down and replace making sure you align the notches and then twist to lock into place. hope this helps

How do you higher or lower the blades of qualcast hover mower


There are not any levers or anything to adjust blade height.

You change blade height by placing spacers above and/or below the blade. You have to remove the blade and relocate the spacers on the blade bolt to move the blade up or down.

How to fit new fuel line to a Flymo maxi trim 430


Removing old fuel line/disassembly
  • Empty petrol tank
  • Use a hooked/bent piece of wire or similar to get fuel line and filter out of petrol tank filler hole
  • Remove fuel filter from end of fuel line
  • Remove air filter housing
  • Remove choke control/ plate from carburettor
  • Ease old fuel line from carb. inlet. And clean inlet tube if necessary
  • Gently but firmly pull old fuel line through hole in base of tank
Fitting new fuel line
  • the new fuel line has too big a diameter to fit through the hole in the base of the fuel tank.
  • To get round this I heated the end of the tube with a lit match (but a blow torch or gas ring would do) until it was soft enough to fashion into a point- take great care the plastic obviously gets very hot and could burn ***** flesh. The tapered end you form should be at least 1cm long. Allow to cool
  • Trim off the end of the tapered point if necessary
  • My next problem was to get the tapered end through the tiny hole inside the fuel tank. To help with this I took the innards out of a standard biro then put the fuel line through the empty tube with the tapered end projecting from where the ballpoint used to be. Push the tapered end through the hole inside the tank.(a torch was useful here to help see inside the tank)
  • Pull the fuel line through from below the tank until you have enough to push on to the fuel inlet on the carb.
  • Cut the tapered end off the tube and push onto the fuel inlet .
  • Cut the other end of the tube so there is enough length to reach all parts of the fuel tank.
  • Attach fuel filter and push it into petrol tank
  • Refit choke plate and air filter housing

When my flymo lite 250 engine is running the end does not turn to cut the grass


Could be anything from a stripped drive shaft to a loose or stripped trimmer head. You'll probably need to take it to a repair shop to have them diagnose the problem and locate the replacement parts if it's anything other than a stripped trimmer head bolt.

Flymo electric power trim..dual auto feed line keeps getting wound around the drive shaft...bloody annoying any suggestions.. Ian (M)


Most trimmers have a cutter on the shield by the spool. This cuts excess line off to prevent it from wrapping around the shaft. If the shield has been removed or the cutter is dull it will allow extra line to wrap around the shaft.

I have a troy bilt riding lawn mover, it cuts the grass uneven, changed blades thinking it was the problem, but it wasn't. do they have any kind of adjustments for the blades?


The best bet is to work on the deck with it removed from the tractor. You may find the bearings are out in one of the spindles. Quite often someone hits something and the deck housing is bent where the spindle bolts to it. Use a tape measure and measure the distance from the deck to the blade. Compare the two spindles (3 if it's 3 blades) . You'll find one spindle is tilted so that it is not 90 degree to the deck. What I do is once I've located the offending spindle, and which direction it is tilted, I remove the blade, slide a piece of pipe about 4' long over the spindle (usually 1-1/2 or 2" pipe) so it clears the hub and bend it. Then I reinstall the blade and measure it again.
