If the engine is running but no output from the plugs....the VERY common problem is loss of magnetism in the generator after storage.
With the generator off.........
Look at the side of the generator you see a small + and - on any terminals?
You may have to take a cover off.
Take a 9 volt battery and momentarily put current from this small battery through these terminals.
Now.....start her up and check for power at the plugs.
This fixes 75% of "no output" after being "stored" generators.

Our generator use to idle until you put a demand on it at which time it would accelerate. One day it stopped wrapping up and stopped producing electricity. We now have a cordless battery charger plugged in ready to pull electricity. I manually spike the throttle a few times at the solenoid and it wakes up and starts putting out juice. I don't know why it works, but we've done it that way over and over. We can run drills, etc. my only concern is that it still doesn't wrap up like it use to. It simply idles while running our equipment.

I need the complete gear box at the end of the shaft where can i find this

Homelite parts are hard to come by these days. Some parts have been discontinued. You might go online and find a homelite parts dealer in your area (or any area that is willing to ship parts to you).
They will need the UT number on the trimmer as well as the name on the side.
