Replace a flexible curved shaft

I have a Trim N' Edge 25cc trimmer and the flexible curved shaft snapped at the housing end. I can get the flexible shaft out by removing the saft from the engine, but I can't figure out how to remove the housing & eyelet peice from the shaft housing. Is the housing and flex. shaft all one unit or is there a trick to remove the housing (trimmer head) so I can replace the flexible shaft?

IT STARTS BUT TRIMMER PART WONT TURN


Disconnect the two halves of the shaft. It should be pretty easy. Inspect the drive cable to make sure it hasnt snapped. Also make sure the cable is inserted into the female half. Its a square shaped cable that spins and drives the string trimmer head.

  • Hole in the end of the clutch housing where the cable slides in has a # 20 torx screw in there.
  • Pull the spark plug, stuff some rewind starter rope in the plug hole, use a water pump pliers and turn off the clutch plate(s). NOTE: curved shaft trimmer will be a standard right-hand thread, straight shaft will be a left-hand thread.

Im trying to change the primer bulb on a ppb200e


They usually just snap in place if they are a remote type bulb (on the side of the intake housing) and if it is a carburetor mounted bulb, removal of a couple of screws usually does the trick. I would try and press the old bulb assembly out of its housing (from back (where nipples are)pushing towards the front (where the bulb itself is). Careful, not to crack the housing around where the bulb assembly is snapped in.

Broken or worn shaft flex. Motor runs and head moves a little with no power. How to remove shaft from housing?


First, about 4 Torx screws hold the end of the flex-drive tube to the engine housing. Remove those.Then, remove the throttle cable from the throttle plate shaft of the carburetor. If any covers are in the way, remove them.If the handle has a stop switch on it, then you will want to remove the wires from the ignition module (unless you can pull the tube out far enough away to access the flex drive. If the stop switch is on the front engine cover, then fine.
Once the tube is free and clear, just grap the end of the flex drive and pull it out. If you reinstall it, reverse it end for end and grease it well with lithium-based grease. Post back if needed.

I strip the cable inside my lawn trimmer it would turn my cutter below. Is this something I can repair or must I take it to shop?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. When you say you stripped the cable I am assuming that your talking about the flexible drive shaft. This can be replaced at home. However,.... ou did not state if this was a gas or electric model. At the moment I am assuming it is a 25cc Gas trimmer. To replace the flexible drive shaft the motor will have to be unmounted from the drive shaft housing. It will have 4 flat sides on each end that must mate correctly into the slots of the motor and the power head or you will not be able to re-mount the engine.

With a good model number I can provide you with a source of the replacment parts and probably what mounting hardware that has to be removed to change the fl;exible drive shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I load string in a P2500 string trimmer??


Remove spool by firmly pulling on tap button. Cut two pieces of line (0.080) about 12 feet. Insert the two ends of the line into the small holes inside the spool. Wind the lines evenly and tightly on the spool. Wind the string in the direction of the arrows on the spool. Push the lines into the notches on the spool leaving three or five inches hanging there. Insert the two ends in the two holes in the hub. Align the notches on the spool with the holes in the hub and push it in until it snaps into place. Pull on the lines to release them from the notches.

Head will not drive. Can feel it slip between nut and motor.


inside the shaft is a flexible drive cord, at each end is usually a hex or torx head fitting that slides into a sleeve, theese can sometimes strip or even snap off and need replaced. remove one end of the shaft (either the engine or the spool) and the cord should slide right out easily. inspect each end for stripping and to make sure it didn't snap off inside the sleeves.
