Hello kane8:

**To Hold the Crankshaft for Removal of the Clutch (or Any Component that Turns with the Crankshaft); Purchase a Bolt that is 3" to 4" Long and has the Same Diameter and Threads as the Spark Plug. Carefully Insert the Bolt Into the Engine Until it Contacts the Piston. If the Bolt is too Short, then Slowly Turn the Engine in the Same Direction you are Going to be Turning the Clutch Until the Piston Contacts the Bolt. Now to Remove the Clutch. If you do Not have the Clutch Tool for an Impact Wrench and are Doing this By Hand (no air compressor and/or not the correct socket), then Use a 2" Wide, Flat Chisel and a Shop Hammer or a 22oz Hammer and Hit the Outer Part of the Thick Ear in the Same Direction that the Engine Turns During Operation.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Why does my new Craftsman 4 cycle Trimmer's head turn counter clockwise


Curved shaft trimmers turn clockwise.. straight shaft trimmers turn Counter Clockwise. Also the Bump head is reverse threaded because of the engine rotation.

When using this trimmer , Angle the right side of the string line down so the grass gets thrown in front of you not at your legs.

I'm having problems figuring out how to change or repair the string pull on a craftsman 22 inch gas hedge trimmer. It looks to me like you have to remove the clutch. How do you do that?


remove screws on both sides of plastic housings, remove spark plug, pull off plactic cap on the bottom side of the clutch plate. stick a wooden stick in that hole to keep the crank shaft from turning when you put an adjustabloe wrench on the clutch, unscrew clutch to get other half of housing off to get to the pull rope.
