Directions say: - use .96 line -Take a length of line about 25 ft. -Align line on top of nut with arrows on side of head -push wire through one of holes until it comes out the other -feed line through until equal on both sides -begin turning counterclockwise until all wire is on spindle and have 8 inches coming out of each hole When I try to push the line in both holes are blocked and I cannot feed the line through- my father tried and I tried- neither one of us can feed the line. Followed directions exactly What is the trick?

SOURCE: Jammed line spool on Ryobi gas trimmer

On my Ryobi trimmer, all I have to do is unscrew the knob (the device that you "bump" to advance the line) at the bottom of the spool and the spool can be lifted out. I had to use a strap wrench the first time since it was on very tight. You don't have to line up any arrows to remove the reel.

SOURCE: Ryobi Trimmer

To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.

SOURCE: need carb settings on both screws on Ryobi C430

start with both screws about 1 and a half turns out from fully screwed in. The high screw will set your fuel for wide open. Back it out until you hear the motor run almost wild then screw it back in about a half a turn. The low screw is a little trickier. When you can quickly go to full throttle from idle its about right.

Ryobi trimmer c430 the timing belt keeps coming off the camgear what can I do?

My timing belt kept coming off also, even with a new belt. I cut a disc of aluminum 1/8 thick slightly larger than the wheel and belt appr 1/8 all the way around. I fastened the disc to the wheel with 6/32 screws and nuts and it works great. No problems with belt coming off 3 months later. Email me bkarudy@yahoo for pics.

Where can i get a diagram on how to replace my crumbling gas lines on my ryobi trimmer?

You need to buy a length of the right size petrol pipe from the internet or garden machinery shop.Should only cost a few quid.Normally got 2 pipes going into tank from carb.Disconnect one from carm then slowly pull out of fuel tank.Measure length and replace with same length of new pipe then do exactly the same with second pipe.Hope this helps.
