This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

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. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

I have a Homelite ST-155 String Trimmer. It says to prime the unit by pumping the bulb. I cannot find this bulb on the unit anywhere. Please tell me where it is. Thank you


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
I have been searching for a while now and know exactly why you came to FixYa for help. It is like a mystery as to where your primer bulb is even online!
Model number for the ST-155 is UT-20539-D

Look on the top or the bottom of the carb for a soft rubber button. Depress it not more than 2 times.
What is even more frustrating is... the carbs for this model are from 2 different manufacturers. One being ZAMA and the other being WALBRO. They are similar but the parts are not interchangable.

I have been helping people for quite some time now and this was one of the most frustrating searches. Not your fault... Just the manufacturer seems to want the location to be a huge secret.
I tried to find an owners manual for the ST155 via company websites also.. no joy!

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Bgreen. Need correct part no. for primer bulb for sx135 bandit string trimmer. old one has cracked due to age.


Your SX-135 string trimmer was built by Homeliteand has a model number of UT-20601. That said, your trimmer's primer bulb part number depends on teh type of carburetor it has. If your trimmer has a Walbro carburetor, the primer bulb part no. is 01201. If it has a Zama carburetor (the most likely one) the primer bulb part no. is A01195A.

You can go to the following website to order the part: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/order_parts

Good Luck, hope this helps!
