The pull rope broke on my ryobi 705r/725r gas trimmer. I have all the screws off but it seems to be held on by the center shaft that spins. What do I do now?

I have the same issue of clutch removal on a Ryobi 725r. Actually the clutch finally died after many years of use.
Instead of using a screwdriver to hold the piston I recommend using a piece of clothesline rope. It will be easier on the internal components and won't scratch up the cylinder walls or piston. Just be sure to leave a small amount hanging out of the spark plug hole so you can pull it out afterward.

Awesome, thanks for the tip. I got through the bell housing and was tryinig to determine how to get the clutch off when I found this.

I'm assuming that the clutch comes off counter clockwise, but would like to be sure. Looks like I didn't need to take the clutch apart to remove it... live and learn.

Thanks for the help!

How hard is it to replace the starter pull cord on a Ryobi 725r gas weed trimmer?


With the proper tools, it is a moderate level project for the DIY mechanic. You will need T15, T20 and T25 torx drivers. 5/8" spark plug socket, Large lip-joint pliers, phillips head screwdriver, 40" of #3.5 rope and about an hour. Start by removing the shaft from the engine. Take pictures as you go. This will make reassenbly easier. The black housing removes next. This will expose the clutch drum. There is a T15 or T20 screw in the middle of the drum. It removes counter-clockwise. Next is the clutch itself. Remove the sparkplug and lower the piston to the bottom of the cylinder. Push as much of the old rop down into the cylinder as you can, then raise the piston up to "lock the cylinder. Now you can use the pliers to turn the clutch counter-clockwise to remove. Don't lose the little washer that is ontop of the clutch, or the thick washer that is under the clutch. Be careful with the clutch, you don't want to damage or misposition the springs on it. They are pretty difficult to reinstall. Next, remove the airbox cover and disconnect the throttle cable. Remove the remaining screws form the tan plastic housing and take it off. Inside this housing is the recoil pulley. Remove the pulley, install the new rope. Wind the rope on the pulley and pass the loose end thru the eye and tie on the handle. To tension the spring, install the pulley and wind more of the rope around the pulley. Reassmble in reverse order. Make sure to get the clutch tight. Failure to tighten the clutch properly can cause major damage.
Good luck!

How do you get the fuel line connected to the fuel filter nipple on the bottom side of the gas tank on the Ryobi 725r gas trimmer?


You must run the fuel line through the back of the tank and out the filler hole,make your connections,i used a small amount of vaseline to make the connections.Then pull the filter into place,make sure some of the nipple of the filter pokes through,then slide the retainer ring on the hose and force it onto the filter nipple.

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)

Replaced rope but cant figure how to put it back together. imagine that! Ryobu 70 r gas trimmer.. thanks Karen


You have to wind the rope assembly then slip it over the shaft! attach the screws on the outside of the assembly usually four screws. then your good to go. if the assembly doesn't wind up then you need a new pull cord assembly. If it winds up but doesn't pull once it's assembled, you have it in backwards. remove it and flip it around wind it and try again!
