Re: Ryobi 105r replacement line

Look at the top of the spool. Line up the two triangles/arrows by turning the inner wheel The inner wheel is a little smaller that the diameter of the spool and has grip lines scored around it. Just below those arrows, on the side of the spool there is a hole where the line would come out of. Thread the line into that hole until it comes out through a hole on the top of the spool. Then bend the end of that line over and stick it in the little hole next to the hole it came through. That will lock it in place. Pull on the other end of the line to tighten it. Now turn that inner wheel and the line will wrap around on the inside of the spool. When it stops and you can't turn it anymore, it's full. Cut the line off about 10 inches or so outside of the spool.

Interchangeable parts We have a Ryobi 700r that takes line for trimming, could we replace that with a permanent chain or something similar other than line?

Adee you could try using the Braided Lines but they are mail order. Dont go too thick as you will put the trimmer under pressure.

Try Home Depot or Lowe's. Both stock several replacement parts for trimmers. If you have a local lawnmower shop, they may carry them. Your best bet is going to this website:

How to remove old string reel from ryobi 105r

After you line up the two triangles, push in and lift. Only the top piece will come off, then the spool is inside. I kept trying to lift the whole head and then the top popped off and I realized what I was doing wrong. It is actually quite easy once you figure out the correct way and where to pull.

Replacing the cutting head on Ryobi string trimmer.

There is a nut above the head, place a wrench on the nut then unscrew the head from the shaft, unless yours is different from mine this is how it works. I hope this helps.

Ryobi 105r overheating

Well, I don't know just yet.
Is the smoke blue and does it do it the whole time that it is running? If so, the gas could be mixed too rich.
Exactly how long does it run? If it is 10-15 minutes then it is probably your gas cap that is the problem. It is clogged with dirt. The gas cap must be able to breathe or the carburetor won't get the proper gas flow.

Lawn trimmer line

This is a common problem. Make sure you are using the manufacturer's recommended line. When winding the line, try to coil it in nice even rows. This helps me to get a better feed. Good Luck!

Ryobi is Japanese for "Piece of ****" My suggestion is to throw it out!
My 767r has had fuel line and carb trouble from day one. I'll never buy another Ryobi or Craftsman tool again.
