Grandma's nylons wrapped around the bottom of the agitater

Simple as that i need to know how to remove the agitater so that i can untangle the nylons. i've removed the cap off the top of the agitater and then removed a bolt  ()bout 3 inches long) however it still won't come off.

    I have the same issue with clothes being wrapped around the bottom of the agitater. What parts are needed to fix something like this issue, or do I need to wait until I get the agitater off to see?

Now you need to pull upward firmly but hard.  there are small splines holding the agitator in position. carefull if the agitator has two parts to it as there are usually plastic (dogs)inside which could spring loose if you are not careful.

I need to know how to replace the nylon cord in my FS 55RC trimmer.

Hi s cowdroy, I will try to help you out. You have to remove the spool from the head. There are different ways this is done depending on the brand. At the bottom you will see different systems, that you either turn or just pull out. You will have to try just pulling or turning and also some might have left hand threads. As you remove the spool remember how everything goes back in. When you look at the bottom of the spool, different brands have different ways of attaching the cutting cord. One will have an eyelet, another will have holes that the cord fits snugly, etc. Some manufacturers use tape, and that is what I use on every machine I restring. I use packing tape, I wrap it around the cord and then tape it to the bottom of the spool. On the spool will be indicated the way to wrap the cord. When wrapping the cord do it in neat rows to prevent tangling that you will have to clear all the time. Something else to prevent tangling, is to wrap the same way you unwrap it, in other words put the spool and the roll of new cord end to end, and as you roll it on the spool you unroll it from the new roll. I hope you understand what I mean. Do not put too much cord on the spool, leave about 1/4" from top. To install the spool make sure it is the same way you took it out. Insert the cord through the eyelet of the head and install the spool in the same way it came out.
Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. Denis.

TAKING APART
