I have a Ryobi 700R trimmer - I need to know how to replace the pull cord - Tom

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.

Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!

Howdo I fit a new pull start cord on a ryobi 25cc

remove the plastic housing to gain access to the recoil. Pull the cord slowly all the way out,this will cause the spring to wind up.Clamp the recoil wheel so it will not return to its original position,be carefull the recoil has tension on it not remove the old pull rope and thread the new one in and thru the hole of the recoil tie knot.pull on the cord to take tension off and at the same time remove clamp. Slowly allow the recoil to wind the rope in and reinstall on unit.

How to sort broken pull cord on petrol strimmer

Hi Baz, i will tell you a generic way of doing this as i don't know the model of your strimmer.
on the pull cord housing you will have 3 or 4 screws to secure the housing to the motor body, undo these. the housing will lift away from the main motor body, underneath this cover you will see a spring canister, there may be a screw or clip keeping this in place or some are just secured with the outcover. remove this canister you should see a coil spring in the middle and a groove around the outside where the cord goes. you should see a knot inside the cord grove where the cord is threaded through to secure, remove thisand remove old cord. Now the trickky bit! some times it helps to have a helping had, you will need to turn the coil spring so it tights up to its full tightness, then thread the new cord into the secureing hole where the old cord was located, then when you release the spring this will coil the cord round the cord groove. replace the pull handle on the end of the cord so there is no slack and replace on to motor in reverse order. Hope this helps.

Ryobi ss30 (ry30544) pull string keeps jamming

I am having the same problem. I took it apart and the plastic cap piece for the pull string spool has a crack. This is the plastic piece that turns the engine when pulling. Because of the crack, the absorption spring under the cap slips out of its hole in the cap. This causes the pull string spool to jam after a strong pull that causes the crack to open up. Now I need to find a replacement part. Any ideas?
