According to Pivotrim, it will fit your trimmer, BUT...
I can see your dilemma here.
Here is a link to the installation tips page for your type of trimmer:
It is recommended for your model to use "Installation Method 3", here is the instructional video:
Now, It does look like the threaded, exposed end is a bit short. From personal experience with this model of trimmer, I found that the entire shaft would slip out overtime form the motor housing. With an allan key, you can loosen the joint where the shaft meets the motor housing near the throttle control. When loosened ensure that the shaft is as far up as it can go, then tighten again.

Hope this helps.

Try going here and downloading a manual for your machine. Most manuals mention the proper plug gap under the maintenance section.

My weedeater lawn edger wont start. I get no gas in the primer bulb, but has fuel in both the main line and the return line. I blew out the fuel fliter and both lines but still no fuel in the primer...

There may be a malfunction in the check valves in the primer base assembly. Before attempting to get a new assembly, take the retaining screws at the bulb off, remove the bulb and spray the assembly liberally with WD-40 or an equivalent light lubricant. Sometimes this will free the check valves as they only let fuel flow one way and there are 2 of them in the primer base.
Do not use strong solvents, do not ever soak, and never use high PSI compressed air on these carbs. Sometimes, when the check valves in the primer base go bad, the carb floods and the reason is unclear. Zama doesn't list this as a reason for their carbs flooding, but they can. You may wish to view a parts breakdown list for your specific carb. You will need to know the type (stamped in side of carb body) and the model (stenciled in side of carb body). It will be something like a C1U type and a W-18A mode...thus its a C1U-W18A Zama carb. Here is a link to get you started.
Yours will be listed under Poulan/Weedeater

No Owner's Manual Came with My P2500, 17" Gas String Trimmer

Hello, It would appear that manuals were not included in this model :) Here is the link you have requested. The page should show four choices for download by year of manufacture - click accordingly. If the selection does not show and the search parameters are blank, simply type P2500 into the "Type your search query (i.e. product name)" box and you will get the same results.

Hope this helps!

Is there on line any type of users guide

At you can get an operator's manual (users guide) download. All you will need to KNOW is the model number of your weedeater. They have detailed parts diagrams, part #'s, just about everything you might need. They don't have a download for a REPAIR manual. Isn't that strange?

How do you get the head off the troy bilt string cutter? I'm try

If by "tearing it up" you mean that little retaining ring inside the main body of the head, that's correct. It must be destroyed to remove the main body.

Very very few of these trimmers can use a different mowing head without suffering damage to the gearbox, driveshaft or centrifugal clutch. (These are VERY LIGHT DUTY trimmers.)

As for the advice you seek:
"Don't run any other head on this unit with expectations of the trimmer holding up."

Troy-Bilt offers other attachments for this engine to use in performing other types of jobs.

At my shop we see a huge percentage of these units with failed drive shafts and gearboxes.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it's better than telling you the wrong thing and then you end up being unsatisfied with the solution I offered. I truly wish you good luck.

Hope this helps,

Will a hayter hobby push mower take a universal scarifier/dethatching balde? thanks

Depends on how old it is. If it has a disc blade, it won't fit (there's no blade boss to fit it to!), but if a standard blade is fitted, it can be replaced with a scaifier blade. Having said that, rotary mowers aren't really suited to the task - better to get a cheap cylinder mower and fit a scarifier cylinder. MUCH more effective.
