I am trying to remove the outer spool assembly. How do I do it?

What does it say in the user manual? Or possibly you don't have one and haven't gone online to get one.

Anyway, most of these spools are removed by pushing two lugs together while pulling the spool away from the housing. Replacement is by just positioning the spool and pushing it into the housing until it clicks into place.

Problem with spool pin


There are screws holding the top housing onto the machine. (The top housing is where the spool pin slid into). remove the screws on the top housing and pull the top housing up off of the machine. You will be able to reposition the spool pin to where it supposed to be. put the top housing back on and reinstall the screws.

Broken pull cord mac320v leaf blower

The pull string is in a housing underneath the fan. Remove the left (as you're holding the blower with the outlet facing away) housing. The blower fan is visible. Use a 1/2" light duty impact driver, it's a conventional clocking leftie loosie rightie tightie. Remove nut, thick flat washer, fan, and another thick flat washer. Three screws are holding the pull string housing. Remove the housing. Three more screws and thin flat washers, and the spool is in your hand. Reassemble in reverse order.

How to reload pull cord spring assembly?

not it not easy but can be done

found this on a web site should tell you what you need to know


I removed the screws from the bottom of the unit to separate mechanism that held the blades from the engine. This revealed a clutch on the end of the drive shaft. I removed the springs so I could remove the two halves of the centrifical clutch. I did this so I could then remove the mount these two halves were around. This mount had an arrow and the word 'off' on it. I placed a block of wood against this mount and hit the wood (protecting the mount) as to spin off the mount in the direction of the arrow. A few sharp licks with the hammer and the mount started to come off. I removed it by hand then. Next I removed screws and spark plug so I could get the green housing off where the cord was mounted. Inside this housing is a white spool the cord was on. Becareful with the next step. To replace the cord I removed the spool the cord is wound on but be careful, under the spool is a metal housing under which is the spring that rewinds the cord when you pull start the unit. The end of the white spool that is out of your sight meshes with the end rewind spring. If you pull too far up on the spring or the metal housing that keeps the spring in place you will have spring everywhere and possibly toward your face becareful. So Loosen the two screws and turn the tabs out of the way that hold down the white cord spool. Slowly work the white cord spool off. Replace the cord on the spool making sure you wind it in the proper direction. Then replace the spool and mesh it with the spring. Turn the spool to wind the spring and retention the pull cord rewinding spring. re assemble unit. Good luck! This is not a step by step but I believe it will get you what you need.

How do i remove the outer assembly spool on a troy built gas trimmer tb575ss

If you are talking about the side where the clutch is, there is a Torx screw inside the hollow part of the clutch housing. Using a #20 Torx bit, loosen screw. If this is the first time on this screw it will be tight and the drive shaft will turn with it. You will have to remove top of cylinder head and put something soft inside the cylinder to stop piston from moving up and down; usually a towel and something stiff like a screwdriver to hold it from moving.
After clutch housing is removed, the clutch itself is threaded and by holding the shaft with pliers you can unscrew the clutch.
Past this, just screws holding the plastic housing.

My rope wont recoil on my Bolen BL 160 I have

the round rotating part with the nose is the clutch drum, it has a small torx screw down inside the center retaining it to the crankshaft, remove this screw, block the cylinder and remove the clutch plates. remove the engine from the housing and turn it around to access the spool and a metal plate that has a few screws holding it in. there is a push nut that looks like a serrated ring holding the spool on the housing, sometimes it can be carefully removed but usually it fails and has to be replaced, it presses back into place upon reassembly. Do not remove this ring if you are not replacing the spring or pulley!!! Simply install your new rope and using the spokes on the pulley gather some slack in the rope and wind up the pulley about 5 turns in the direction it rotates as if you were pulling the rope, while holding the tension on the pulley, extend the rope fully and carefully release the pulley while holding the tension with the rope by its handle it should retract normally
