Question about Ryobi Garden
With the proper tools, it is a moderate level project for the DIY mechanic. You will need T15, T20 and T25 torx drivers. 5/8" spark plug socket, Large lip-joint pliers, phillips head screwdriver, 40" of #3.5 rope and about an hour. Start by removing the shaft from the engine. Take pictures as you go. This will make reassenbly easier. The black housing removes next. This will expose the clutch drum. There is a T15 or T20 screw in the middle of the drum. It removes counter-clockwise. Next is the clutch itself. Remove the sparkplug and lower the piston to the bottom of the cylinder. Push as much of the old rop down into the cylinder as you can, then raise the piston up to "lock the cylinder. Now you can use the pliers to turn the clutch counter-clockwise to remove. Don't lose the little washer that is ontop of the clutch, or the thick washer that is under the clutch. Be careful with the clutch, you don't want to damage or misposition the springs on it. They are pretty difficult to reinstall. Next, remove the airbox cover and disconnect the throttle cable. Remove the remaining screws form the tan plastic housing and take it off. Inside this housing is the recoil pulley. Remove the pulley, install the new rope. Wind the rope on the pulley and pass the loose end thru the eye and tie on the handle. To tension the spring, install the pulley and wind more of the rope around the pulley. Reassmble in reverse order. Make sure to get the clutch tight. Failure to tighten the clutch properly can cause major damage.
