How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".
Cheers..

My trimmer head only comes off if I use a large set of pliers turning the head like the directions say. It would be impossible to do this with just my hands.

Gas weedeater wont start


assuming weedeater brand weed eater, the carb. has a filter screen, that blocks and does not allow the pump to push sufficient fuel. A phillips head screw on the side of the carburettor secures a square plate, remove the screw and plate and gently brush the screen clean, dirt collects on the visible side.
Dirty foam filters if fitted change the fuel mixture and make it too rich to run.
and the fuel mixture knob, although secured by a tension spring, moves and may need to be readjusted

Ryobi 725R weedeater


First unscrew the bump line leter outer. Then remove the yellow line holder, you will see 2 line grooves for each of 2 lines you will wind into the spool. You will see an inlet area at each of the 2 line holders, you will take about 8-10 feet of line and thread the line into the the groove inlet it will poke out the top of the spool. You will see 2 small holes on the top of the spool, feed just the tip of the line into the hole and pull the line tight on the groove side. Do this on both grooves on the spool, once the line is secure, fish each line into the holes on the spool head and secure with the bump spool leter outer. After spool is secure take the entire spool and wind back into the spool head. you will see the line wind into the spool. make sure you wind the right direction. Once you have seen how this is done, look at the bottom of your assembled spool and you will see 2 arrows. If you have no line in the spool, line up the arrows and take 8-10 feet of line and feed as you did when you have the spool removed. The line should feed through the spool and the line will stick up from the bottom, turn the line and feed just the tip of the line into the retainer hole and pull tight from the spool let-out, once secure wind line back into the spool. Once you have done this once its very easy to do over and over!!!
