You have to hold the engine from turning, somehow. If you get it held firmly, then you have to give the clutch a rap with something to loosen it. I use a piece of hardwood and a hammer. Make sure it is being driven counterclockwise. All you have to do is get it loose, once you do, you can remove it with your hands.How to keep the engine from turning? Some suggest using a bolt threaded the same as the spark plug, turn it in past the top of the cylinder. Now turn the engine over easy until the piston touches the bolt. Now is when to rap the clutch with the wood/hammer. Good luck...Lee

Primer button Ryobi lawn hornet

Vacuum created by piston operation after closing the choke pulls fuel into carburetor port into engine. In much the same way as the primer bulb provides fuel for the port. These type engines usually take a few more pulls before they will start. And if there are any leaks in carb. system will be very hard to start.

Can't remember what fuel our Ryobi Lawn Hornet uses

All 2 cycle tools must have oil mixed with the gas. Use the proper oil and mixture recommend by the manufacture.

Ryobi lawn hornet wont start....continually

Hi Tamcoff - If its the same model as mine (and you can't always rely on the Parts Cattledog!!):

- to remove the bell housing; twist off the spring and using a T20 torx screwdriver unscrew the retaining screw in the centre of the housing (normal RH thread)
- place a large screwdriver in the slots of the cover to jam the impeller and using a copper drift (or similar) and hammer, tap sharply the in one of the clutch recesses (one of mine hasd 'OUT' embossed in it) unscrew the clutch from the drive shaft (normal RH thread)
