SOURCE: I need to know how to re-string my John Deere

Hello, W/D here.

I'm afraid that mental pictures are the best I can do, but bear with me; I'm good at it....We'll go over the spool parts, and the first time you wind tha spool, don't put any line on it....just read the directions while you hold the spool in your hands. Get a feel for what you are going to do. See how it will fit where it needs to go.....
All right......
Pull the spool out of the head.
Just look at it. You'll see that it is actually two spools.
Look at the divider between the spools. See the notch?
Look at the middle of the spools, or the core, where the line winds on the spool. See the small holes, one for each spool?
Flip the spools upside down. Look at the bottom. Note the notches in the rim of the bottom, and the arrows indicating the direction to wind the line. Look near the notches. There should be numbers next to the notches. This is the line size that fits your machine.
Take a brief look into the hole where the spool will attach to the head. We'll talk about that in a minute.
All right, let's do it. Remember, no line for the first walk thru. Take your line and snip the end at an angle, say about 45 degrees. Now take the pointed end and poke it about 1/8" into the small hole in the core of the inner spool (the spool closest to the bottom of the spool assembly). The purpose of placing the line in the hole is to anchor the line while you wrap (load) the spool. Start wrapping the line on the spool, going in the direction of the arrows. When you have that spool wrapped almost to the diameter of the rim, place the line in the bottom rim notch that is 180 degrees from the notch that is in between the spools. The line should fit into the notch snugly. You want about 6" of line to hang out past the notch and cut it so you have a 6" tail hanging out.
Now, fill the outer spool the same way. When you get it full, you'll pass that line into the notch in between the spools, and anchor it into the notch on the rim. Again, leave about a 6" tail, and cut it off.
Hard part's done. Get the spool close to the head, and thread the tails into the grommets on the machine head. Once both ends are in the grommets, straighten up the spool (align the notches holding the tails with the grommets) and push the spool into the head.
Almost there! When the spool is firmly set in the head, you'll feel a bit of a click, Grasp the tails, and tug on them enough to pull them out of the notches that were anchoring them to the rim.
Let's check our work. Push the spool in, simulating bumping the spool on the ground to advance the line. Once you have pushed it in, tug again on the tails. You should pull about an inch or so from each side, and then the line will stop.
Once you have that, you're done!
Now, about the hole in the bottom of the spool where it connects to the trimmer head....Sometimes, the line will be difficult to advance, so you should clean it out a bit from time-to-time. The trick that will help you is that, after cleaning it, put a little graphite dust in the hole. This lubricates the advancing mechanism without leaving an oily residue that will collect debris. Don't do it this time, maybe not next time, just some time. I probably do this maybe every eighth or tenth time I wind the spools or so. I buy the graphite usually at Lowe's or similar. It's used for locks, but you an also get it at Hobby Lobby where it's used for Cub Scout race cars (Pinewood Derby). Same stuff.
Sorry about no pictures. Turns out you didn't need them after all!
You've been a great student, and it's been a pleasure.
Best regards, --W/D--

Super high compression ratios in the combustion chambers which ignite a highly COMBUSTIBLE, not overly FLAMMABLE fuel mixture. How they get the mixture to fire at or before top dead center of the compression stroke I have no idea.

Never owned a 2cycle product and some one gave me a John Deere t105c trimmer but dont have an owners manual and dont want to pay $20 -$40 for one just to find out how to fill with gas/oil mixture. Can you...


You need two-cycle motor oil, do not use regular motor oil. Almost all two-cycle motors are designed to run on a 50 to 1 mixture of gas and oil. Look for two-cycle motor oil at any store that carries two-cycle tools like chain saws, line trimmers, etc. A good bet is Lowe's or The Home Depot. If you get the 2.6 oz bottle you have to add that to one gallon of gas to get a 50:1 mixture. Always read the oil bottle for correct mixing amounts and mix the oil with the gas in a separate container then put it in your trimmer.

Need gas/oil mixture for a John Deere BC 1600 trimmer.


Some of the new machines have a 50:1 Mix ratio, but all of the older ones I've seen are 40:1 which is 3.2 oz oil/Gallon gas. The John Deere machines appear to be similar to the Homelites, just different brand names on them.

Trimmer runs good but does not cut grass


I have had a similar problem with an edging attachment. The socket that fit onto the shaft was worn, and the shaft would just spin, creating a lot of heat right there, but very little movement, and it would completely stall when you tried to use it implement, even though the moter still ran just fine. The cure, I'm sorry to say, was to replace the implement.
