SOURCE: Require Manual for Ryobi PTL 2543 25cc line trimmer

Or sometimes you unscrew a retaining bolt set into a plastic "lug", the spool drops out, refill t with line, replace it putting line through holes in the spool casing, refit the "lug" and tighten it again. I think I have the manual for this though and if so maybe I can send you a link to images on MSN Homepage to help you..

SOURCE: Replacing Drive Shaft for a Ryobi 725r

The lower flex shaft should cost around $40, unless you order it online and have to pay shipping. You should be able to get one from your local MTD dealer. (Ryobi is owned by MTD)

SOURCE: Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle

Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Ryobi grass scorpion rct2800a head keeps coming off. Is there a screw or bolt to hold the head in the housing?


I see the spool shaft on the spool and not the drive cable. ALL my trimmers were designed for the line spool to come off the shaft (usually by removing the plastic bump feed nut). Your drive shaft appears to have a groove in it about 3/4 toward the top. I surmise that notch is where a broken/missing set screw or "c" clip would most likely hold the shaft to the drive cable. If you find it to be true, a factory part would not ne needed to find a replacement part to lock the shaft and drive cable.

Husky 224L is new, starts easy but when i start throttling, the string trimmer barely spins.


This machine has a flexi drive shaft ( like a big speedo cable ) there are a number of things to check, make sure the gearbox is pushed fully onto the tube, slacken the pinch screws and twist and push the gearbox fully on, check the tube is fully into the engine housing, slacken the pinch screws and push the tube fully in, failing this the flexi drive may damaged, remove the gear box, pull the flexi drive out and check the condition of the square ends.

Engine runs, but spool with trimmer line doesn't spin. Is it repairable?


If the spool doesnt spin check the driveline for damage.

If you just have a broken drive cable you can replace or repair it.

If the drive cable is spinning but the connection to the spool is bad then you might look for a replacement spool.

The problem is that the cost of buying these parts is on par with about 40-50% of the cost of replacing the whole unit.

Good luck and be careful!

I broke the flex drive shaft but can't remove the head to get out the broken shaft piece. I got the big part of the shaft out from the top. the bump head has been replaced by the kind that you cut 2 pieces...


The flex shaft drive you are referring to is only sold as a assy that I am aware of. You can try www.partstree.com for the replacement shaft assy. you are refering to, however you may find out by the time you buy a new shaft assy you may be money ahead just buying a new trimmer.
Sorry

I have Craftsman 17" Weedwacker and need fuel lines


Hey jncsurf, I had to buy fuel lines last week. I called the local sears parts store, and gave them the model number. They had a rather generic bag with the correct diameter lines. Just cut to the approximate length.
But now I have a problem: I didn't note which lines went where when I pulled the lines off. Could you tell me where does the line from the primer bulb go: top or bottom barb on the carb? Thanx.
