Troy Bilt 4 cycle weed eater - trimmer head doesn't spin

Troy Bilt 4 cycle weed eater.
Engine spins fine. Weed eater attachment head doesn't spin. Pretty sure attachment isn't seating properly into drive shaft, but don't know how to make it do so.

it is getting hot from friction because you cannot tighten it so the head spins but everytime it hits a wed it tries to stop spinniing because it is slipping from the bolt not tightened. fix the bolt hole with a tap and put in a new bolt

The head will not spin on Troy Built weed eatter


sounds like your flex cable has taken a trip south. Pull the shaft off the head and take a look at the flex cable. If flex cable is ok, they your clutch is defective.

Ryobi weed eater head won't spin


Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.

Lost manual for troy bilt weed eater mod#tb514cs 4cycle


I didn't find that exact one either, but recently had to work on my Yard Man 4-Cycle Straight Shaft and used a Troy-Bilt manual for a similar trimmer - worked great.
If you don't find yours at this site, maybe a similar one will work. It looks like the difference is the TB525 receives attachments. If you're trying to fix something right now, here's the manual for that one until you find yours:

Troy-Bilt Trimmer TB425CS


Sound like the clutch is going out or already is bad. There should be a cone shape cover that attaches the engine to the handle. Usually with 4 screws. Take those screws out and seperate the housing. There is a small centrifugal clutch, which is probably bad.
