Question about Garden

1 Answer

Hi, which type of Loctite are you suppose to put on the crankpin of a trimmer/weedeater to get it to stay? Will the regular red or white threadlocker work fine? Thanks a lot, Josh

Crank Pin keeps coming out and hits the reed valve and read an answer saying to use Loctite. I just want to know which type to use? The glue, threadlocker, etc...?? Thanks a lot!

If this problem recurs, I would remove the crank pin, put it on a vise or heavy steel block and carefully deform one en of the pin before pushing the virgin end back in place.

SOURCE: how do iremove trimmer head weedeater fl20

It depends on your model. You can visit the PIVOTRIM website and they show how to install their head on most units which includes how to take your old one off. Their website is http://www.pivotrim.com
Otherwise you need to look at your operators manual or call the manufacturer.

SOURCE: Ryobi edger, trimmer, weedeater was working fine

If the trimmer has fire, (spark) Then:

check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: i am able to crank the trimmer but it does not

1) Change out the old fuel (not just adding fresh but pouring out the old and replacing it entirely) and check the engine oil.

2) Check muffler and/or spark arrestor screen for restrictions.

3) Clean and reinstall spark plug (check gap).

4) Replace inlet screen INSIDE the carb. (It is located directly under the inlet needle.)

Try each of these as needed.
Hope this helps!

90 days is 90 days...

My best advice would be to take your handle

recommend a "THREAD LOCK" compound like the
RED (or Blue: medium duty) products below... (Loctite).

Recommend...
only because Loctite is for METAL

Red Heavy duty (for metal surfaces)

Go to an auto shop and buy a tube of Loctite. Undo the screw, put Loctite on the threads and retighten it. Fixed!

Crank bolt keeps undoing after ten or so miles


Try some Loctite on the threads:

http://www.loctiteproducts.com/threadlockers.shtml

The blue allows disassembly with common hand tools.
The red usually needs impact tools to undo.

Available at auto parts stores.

The crankshaft sprocket (for the primary chain) on Harley's use the red to secure the nut, as this is something you don't want coming loose on ya.

The head keeps falling off my weedeater brand weed eater


Add a split washer. Turn it tight enough to compress the split into a flat washer. The spring tension of the washer will hold it on. If not, you will need to add some Loctite.

Front panel on range came apart


Buy some Loctite threadlocker and put some on the screws that are coming loose. It is like a liquid plastic that prevents screws, bolts from coming loose. It stays rubbery so you can take the bolts out if you need to.
