    I have the same problem, mine is a 2 cycle though, but the upper drive shaft has a link to attach other tools. This piece has worn out and now will not turn the square ended shafts of the tools. I need a part number for the upper drive shaft for a TB70SS, with ez-link attachment option.

    The problem cannot be fixed with JB Weld. The receiver has become rounded out (no longer square inside). At least that is what happened to mine. The receiver needs to be replaced. where do I get parts?

    Rotation of the head doesn't work very well and the engine sounds like it is bogging down but the head doesn't rotate. I think I will try to take apart and apply JB to it.

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?

4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

How do I change the oil filter on my troy built 4 cycle trimmer

You do not have one. Like 4-cycle push mower engines, these are splash lubricated. They lack a full-flow/pressure oiling system. When the oil gets dirty, dump it out and refill to proper specifications. Do this every 20 hours on this trimmer and it will stay happy for a long time.

Lost manual for troy bilt weed eater mod#tb514cs 4cycle

I didn't find that exact one either, but recently had to work on my Yard Man 4-Cycle Straight Shaft and used a Troy-Bilt manual for a similar trimmer - worked great.
If you don't find yours at this site, maybe a similar one will work. It looks like the difference is the TB525 receives attachments. If you're trying to fix something right now, here's the manual for that one until you find yours:

Troy Built 4-cycle engine Trimmer

there should be a label stating the oil type somewhere on the engine or cap or owners manual, if not most manufacturers recomend a 30 weight oil. be sure to drain out the old stuff first.
