Question about Troy Lawn Trimmers & Edgers
I have a Troy-Bilt TB525CS trimmer which needs a new starter assembly. It is under warranty but I now find that means nothing and I will be charged $60 to check it out and the shop tells me Troy-Bilt won't honor the warranty so it's a waste of time. I decided to order the part and replace it myself, couldn't be that hard, I have been a mechanic for years. Well, I got the trimmer apart and now I can't get the motor out because the flywheel is preventing me from removing the engine shroud, the red plastic shroud which covers the front of the engine. The flywheel is about 3'' around and has a nose shaft on it. It looks like there is an allen screw holding it onto the crankshaft, but I cant get anything to fit the screw. Do I need a special tool to press this off the shaft?
these usually are threaded counter clockwise need a pair of channel locks to hold the flywheel then with the other hand crack nut open

sounds like you are trying to remove the drum assembly; try a torx driver or a phillips screwdriver. There is a srew that hold that drum on and the bolt is in that black hole.

Yes, something special to know. If the new fuel line is going into the gas tank, be sure to cut a steep angle on the end of the line going into the gas tank. This will allow enough of the line to get into the tank where you will be able to grab it thru the gas fill opening with needle nose pliers and pull it thru.

Probably no special tools needed. Take the starter assy off. Turn the recoil in the direction it will turn if you are pulling the rope. When it gets tight, hold it there and install the new rope. When it is installed, let go of the recoil and it will draw the rope in.
