Pullrope broke on weedeater 550 how do i get it apart

    I have the same problem. Pull cord just pulled straight out of the unit. Easy enough to take the 3 hex bolts out and get to the recoil assy. But how do I attach the pull cord. There appears to be a slot for the cord/knot. I tried a knot but it interfered with the rewind. I tried melting the tip of the string to make a little ball to stay in the slot but it didn't hold. Is there a retaining clip or something that needs to be attached to the end of the rope? Do I have to get the clutch off? Hopefully not.

Ther eshoul dbe some bolt holding the pullcord/recoil assenbly to the flywheel/motor. you need to locate and find these bolts first. let me know when you have this apart. you have to unwind the rope and pull it completley out, then buy a new pullcord rope(other rope will just fray and break agai) slip it thru the holes tie a knot wind up the spring and carefu;lly place it back on were it came. let me know if you run into any trouble.

Best thing to do is remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing on the piston skirt and the machine will have to come apart for futher investigation, it may well nedd a new cylinder and piston, this may render it beyond economic repair.

Need to obtain a new belt and pull rope for my Tiller


you can get a pull rope at wal-mart.measure the belt and any parts store or place that sells lawnmower belts should have one.if the rope broke close to the end knot just pull the end knot with some needle nose pliers.once you have all the old rope out lay the old rope pieces on the ground and cut the new rope to match it as far as length.turn the pulley that the pull rope goes in six turns counerclockwise.then turn the slot the knot was in to the hole the pullrope goes thru and fish it thru then pull it up and out with apaiar of needlnose have someone hold the pulley until you tie a small knot in the end of the pullrope the hold the pullrope and let it pull it in.you might have to cut some off at the handle if its still too long.to do this pull some rope out and tie a quick knot so the rope can't slip back if you let it go.

I took apart a remington model 550-1 auto 22 and a small pin fell out and I have no idea where it goes. It is about 3/4'' long,round and it has 1 end the same size as the firing pin and larger on the other...


Without seeing it, It's hard to tell, the closest I can come is the extractor plunger, or a part of the lifter.3 pins in there, your trigger plunger, and 2 pins on the safety.None are the shape you noted. Going by this drawing anyway. I didn't want to take my 550 apart to look for it, But I will if I have to. There is one more pin in the end of the tube magazine.

Weedeater gas TE400. Trigger broke (perhaps


120' cord. I would go to a big-box store and investigate making your own cord so that you only have 2 ends. 12 guage at the very least. any thing smaller, and you will burn up the motor.

I believe that the trigger and throttle cable should solve your issue.

Carburetor adjustment weed eater fl sst 25,will only run if held 90% to the right.


My machine didn't run idle either. Took carburator apart of the Sst 25. Cleaned it with gasoline and a brush. But no luck. Figured it must be the nozzle of the idle. There are two more or less hidden black adjustment screws for the nozzles (idle and gas). I used a plastic tube from a ballpoint to take screw out, ran some air through it, reassembled it and now the machine runs smooth again...

Can't find a Vivitar phone number to repair my 550


No, please. I was looking for the company-related repair center. I think an outfit by the name of Sakar is the official repair center, but time will tell.


Thanks but no thanks
