Question about Poulan Garden
I have a Poulan Pro 466XT weed trimmer. I need to replace the pull rope (starter rope).
The starter rope assembly is on the inside front of the yellow plastic cover on the front of the engine assembly. I've disassembled the unit to where i could remove the yellow plastic cover, but there's what appears to be a clutch assembly on the front that has to come off & I cannot see how to take this assembly off. The shaft on it (that connects to the drive cable on the handle) is hollow & I've tried different screw drivers and allen wrenches, but nothing seems to want to grab properly. I cannot clearly see what's inside the shaft either.
How do i get this assembly off?
I appreciate any help anyone can offer,
Sounds like you are trying to remove the drum assembly; try a torx driver or a phillips screwdriver. There is a srew that hold that drum on and the bolt is in that black hole.

Testimonial: "read suggetions & took another look. Found a small flat blade screw driver would work. Appreciate the help"
If this is the same as the Pro 6 model, the clutch assembly is reverse threaded so turn it clockwise to remove. You must prevent the motor from turn while doing this. I used a heavy screwdriver up through the vent holes to hold it in place. Hope this helps.
