If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

If you need more help, let me know.

Is the trim head replaceable

The machine is rated as a brushcutter even though it is supplied with a line trimmer head.

You should find a range of spares and accessories available for the machine to perform a number of functions.

Where can I get a gearhead for an old Stihl FS 66 trimmer?

from a stihl parts shop, on line from the manufacturer or if there is one at your local dump , the reuse shop that will have heaps of trimmers
Basically ant trimmer head that fits on the shaft will do the job as the drive is a square hole.

Does anyone know of another gear head that fits on a Stihl FS66 trimmer?

I was told the old shaft is 7/8 and the new one is 1 ". Looks like you could use a sleave.

Fitting line to stihl fs 38

If its the auto feed style head, you need to push the two tabs in on the black feed head, the outer ring should then just pull off, exposing the bumper feed cap/spool.
