SOURCE: Weed Eater PE550 - How do you change the spring

Lay the unit on it's side, carborater down. Removed the 3 screws holding hold the gear assembly housing. Hold the clutch assembly inside a cloth with a wrench and remove the nut. Left from the starter cup as a stack and set aside. There is a starter retaining ring on the shaft. Pull this with a long nose plyers. If it spings free, it is easy to loose. Then left out the starter pully. The starter spring is under the pully. Remove it with a sharp pointed tool. A broken one is crusted in rust and will be snapped off inside the coil.

SOURCE: why does my primer bulb when pushed stay push in

You may have a clogged in tank fuel filter, lines in the tank broken off of the fuel filter and line fragments clogging the fuel lines. . Fuel lines get flaky when they deteriorate. Your primer bulb may be leaking also. The check valves in the carburetor control the flow of fuel in and out of the primer bulb. The carb may need cleaning. In other words, a complete fuel system assembly inspection will be needed. If the bulb is on the carb, the check valves in the base assembly below it may be sticking. Remove bulb and spray in there with WD-40 to free frozen or sticking check valves. The valves are very small and malfunction occasionally
Start your inspection at the fuel tank and work your way to the carb. Pull the cover off the carb on the end opposite the end with the vent hole in the cover. You will be pulling off the fuel pump cover. Inside the carb body you will find a very small round fine mesh screen. Clean it well with carb cleaner and when you reassemble, spray some WD-40 in that area too.

SOURCE: Describe your Poulan/Weed Eater No.

I found the manual for this model weed eater, according to the manual the mixture...
and I quote "This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

:) happy weed thrashing

How do I change the blade


The blade bolt is normally 9/16, you will need a good socket and long tommy bar to remove the bolt, an impact wrench will take it out very quickly if you have or can borrow one,

I have a poulan weed eater edger. It will start and run but when I move the choke it stalls. I want to clean the air filter but I don't know where it is.


I am not familar with all models of all things but you will find the air filter in the close area of the carburator intake. The filter cleans the cumbustion air prior to entering the carb. Good luck...Lee

Weed eater starts, runs 5 min. then cuts off


The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

Just let me know if you need further assistance.
