How to put on new line segments onto wheeled weed trimmer

Thanks for your time.

I have this wheeled weed trimmer that needs new line segments installed. It's not apparent to me how to put them on - do they just loop through and clip into the metal tab or do I need to take the head off somehow (which looks riveted on)?

I've misplaced the manual - I know it's around, I just don't know where, and the weeds are getting high.

Brg,

Jeff

SOURCE: gas weed eater pull cord wont retract after pulling cord

remove the cover and the screw holding the recoil down, turning the pulley ccw should release the spring then wind rope around pulley and (hopefully yours has the slot in it) wind in the direction of the pulley teeth then, holding rope in slot put back on spring and wind cw till almost tight, and install screw. Usually you can do this without taking rope handle off. sometimes you have to remove handle. look at spring end in the middle and make sure its not broke as long as you have it apart. Its a easy fix.
Thanks for using fixya

SOURCE: repairing fuel line on craftsman 32cc weed trimmer.

Cut the end of the line at a sharp angle. Spray WD-40 on the line and fuel tank hole. Slowly screw the line in the tank far enough so you can connect the fuel filter if you are replacing that line. If not just push the line into the tank if you have a two line system. Remember on the fuel primer, the long tip has the line going to the tank, and the short tip has the fuel line going to the carb.

SOURCE: how do I replace the pull cord on a ryobi #ss30 weed trimmer

You need a long skinny T25 torque driver (sold in a pack at Lowe's with 3 other sizes.)

Take off the 4 screws in the back to reveal the piston. Get a wooden dowel (or a wooden spoon if your wife isn't around) and stick it in to the piston to block it from spinning.

Now take that T25 and stick it in to the front pulley (cone shaped silver item that is preventing the housing from coming off) turn to the left and it should come off.

That should come off to reveal about a 1"x1.5" piece with a spring wrapped around it. That can also turn to the left and come off with an adjustable wrench or pliers.

Once that is off the housing should come away and you'll be able to get at the pull cord after removing 4 more T25 screws.

Tip

Trimmer/Weed Eater String Replacement


"How do I remove the spool and restring my trimmer?"

The spool is ******* on. There should be a Half Sphere-like object (Spool Retainer) on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise, or clockwise, depending on whether you have a Left-hand or Right-hand Trimmer.

If it is a duel line trimmer then:


1. Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

2. Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

3. Wind clockwise onto spool,putting the line that is closest to the ground on first. Once you have wound this piece on, lock the last 4"-6" inches of line through one(1) of the 4 or 5 slits on spool.

4. Repeat process for second piece of line, putting it on the top side of the spool; locking the last few inches in the slot opposite the other locked in piece. (Remember, if you have a left-handed trimmer, the winding instructions will be just the opposite.)

5. Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

6. Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

7. Place Half-Sphere-like object back on, twisting it clock-wise to tighten.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer a little longer than 7ft.

Here is a short video that explains 3 different types of heads:

How do I change the string on a wheeled weedeater brand trimmer


Purchase precut pieces of string. Check the dealer or or big box store for the correct part. The precut string is easily clipped in. Remove the old piece by pushing back and lifting up on the piece until it comes loose. Put the new piece in the slot and pull it forward to seat it. Repeat for the other side(s)

Istuctions for fuel line installation on weed wacker


The esiest way to figure it out is to take the line with the filter and put it on one nipple then push on the primer a few times and see if fuel comes out of the other, if no fuel then switch the line over to the other. But if im not mistaken the filter will go to the bottom.
