There can be several things causing your no-start condition. The engine has to have good compression with no air leaks first off. Then it has to have the proper mix of fuel/oil and it needs to be fresh. The air filter has to be clean. The ignition coil air gap has to be at the proper setting and the carburetor Hi and Low jet screws have to be set properly. But in past seems fuel delivery problems are the most common. Make sure it is getting fuel and spark and post back,

How to restring drum on Echo 210 gas trimmer

Pull the head off by turning the inner hub counter clockwise while holding the outer head still. Once the inner head pops out, turn it over and look for the string rotation arrow. If you can't find the string winding directional arrow, start the trimmer and determine shaft rotation direction (generally counter clockwise) and wind the string in the same direction as the head rotates when installed.
Pull about 5 arm lengths of string out of a string spool and cut it off. Place the inner trimmer head on an object that will hold it while you pull the string to even lengths through the winding hole (the support brackets of a pickup truck tail gate work well for holding the inner head while doing this).
Begin wrapping the string double wraps in the proper direction, laying them evenly and closely to the previous wrap, working it back and forth as the string begins to build up. Avoid crossing the string over itself more than necessary, the string can weld itself together if the strands cross to awkwardly. Once the string is wound, hold the head with one hand and slide the string through the outer head holes, avoid letting the string come unwrapped.
Carefully place the inner head down into the outer header. Avoid letting the string get caught between the inner and outer head. Once the heads are together lock the inner head onto the outer head by turning it and locking the round knobs into the outer head slots.
You can trim the string or let the trimmer guard do it. If the string doesn't feed it is either wound the wrong way, tangled between the inner/outer head or welded to itself.

I am re-stringing my Fender 140sce and every time I begin to tune a new string up, the peg pops up. Do I keep pressure on it to try and keep it in place until it is fully in tune, or is this out of the...

It is a little tricky, but you have to kind of pre-form the ball end of the string so it tucks under the ledge of the hole it goes into. Then put peg in and as you do pull up on the string slightly so the pre-formed ball end is caught under the ledge. Make sure the slot is toward the neck direction and the string seats in it, Also once the string is seated, kind of preform the string over the edge of the hole as the string is started to be tightened.

I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.

Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

How too install rear solid window on a 1994 vw jetta

As with any windshield you'll need a special tool called a nylon string.
  • First clean the whole glass with de-natured alcohol and clean your hands too, this cleans any oil residue which can cause leaks in the future.
  • Install the new rubber gasket on the glass.
  • Assuming the metal body part is clean too wrap the nylon string around the rubber gasket outer groove (metal contact part) at least 2 times around and still have 2ft extra when they meet up in the middle.
  • Keep the excess string inside part of glass and let it hang for now but should be x-crossing in the middle.
  • A water and dish washing soap solution should be used both on the rubber gasket and the metal part of body where it contacts. This will ensure of slippery installation.
  • Place glass with gasket on whole with the part where the excess string is at and place it on it's mating groove to secure the starting point of work.
  • While second helper pushing lightly on glass from outside, start pulling the string toward you at the same time while helper helps guide the glass by pushing the area where ever the string pulled out is.
  • Pulling of the string towards you causes the rubber gasket lip to easily move so the body part will land on the rubber groove.
Usually it only take 5mins to do this with a helper. If you have no idea what I'm talking about call a glass company and let your insurance take care of it. It's about $250 for replacing.

Bosch cannister vac: Cord is stuck--won't rewind

It probably is, these cords are usually 15-25' long ;-)
What you can asssume is that the cord is simply twisted upon itself and doubled up so cannot easily come out, and will not go in... therefore.
Pull gently on the cord and twist in a clockwise direction. Does the cord seem to get a bit longer? If not, or if it gets tighter, try counterclockwise. If you keep trying eventually it will loosen and you can fully extend the cord. Compare this to holding a piece of string between your hands by the thumb and index fingers. Hold one end still and twist the other 20 times (twisting the string). then relax the string between your hands. See how it immediately forms a loop? That is the problem with your cordreel too. There is a loop in there that we need to undo. Now pull a bit so you can still see the loop, and then start untwisting to see what happens. You can also do this with a YoYo ;-)

Be patient, observe, sensitize your tactile senses and see if you can figure out which direction loosens your cord - and get it out ;-)

Good Luck
Hopefully you wont have to take it all apart. that cordreel spring is very strong. Be careful if you do go in there.
