Even if you are able to "unseize" it, it may not run afterwards. The reason you NEED to add oil to the gasoline is because that is the only lubrication the engine gets! You can try to unseize it by removing all of the remaining gasoline from it and putting in ONLY some 2 cycle engine oil. Then you will need to attempt to turn the engine shaft back and forth using the weedeater feed spool as a lever handle. IF, and I say if it breaks loose you may not have sustained alot of damage. If it doesn't...

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hi i have a Ryobi c430 weedeater, what petrol do i use in it?. is it 2 stroke or a 4 stroke motor? i dont have the manual for it. thankyou


This is a 4-Stroke model. Just use regular unleaded gas in it. Here is a viewable manual of models like yours.
http://dl.owneriq.net/8/8875c2d5-4f85-4c2b-a141-df69cc2b8e93.pdf
The manual is 52 pages and takes a little time to download.

Weedeater blower will not prime


The primer bulb sucks fuel from the tank to the carb. When the carb has enough fuel the remainder is sent back to the tank. When you replaced the fuel line did you use the exact length of line and did you re-install the filter. On some of the trimmers the filter is weighted and holds the line in the fuel. Good luck...Lee

Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!


yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run

Weedeater gas line


I ran a short piece of coathanger that I cut through the fuel line and used electrical tape (stretched tight) to tape it securely at the end and pushed it thru the hole. Then I removed the electrical tape and cut off the part of the hose that had been taped. You waste an inch or two of fuel line, but that's how I got mine thru. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.
