SOURCE: Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle

Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

What else should i try

Sounds like the check valve in the primer base is stuck/clogged/damaged, assuming the fuel lines and fuel filter are intact and not clogged, It will have to be replaced.

I have a mcculloch string trimmer with no spark? Do I have to replace the iginition coil ? No spark at end of spark plug wire.

I am assuming you held the wire near the engine while trying to start it? If so then you need to either replace the ignition coil or hopefully just the spark plug wire.

If the wire is broken it won't spark either. You can check the wire with a multimeter set to resistance (ohms) and check for infinite resistance, if you get infinite then the wire is shot.

May be time to get the carburetor rebuilt. Sounds like the diaphragms are not working properly to pump fuel. You may need some lubrication on the throttle cable too. A little lubrication on the throttle arm would not hurt.
Good Day.

Is the pull rope in the front or rear of engine.Thinking that the string is in the front,you must throttle housing and shaft from engine. remove starter housing. There sould be a screw holding the string and spring in place.
