SOURCE: I received an answer for a 25cc gas trimmer,

The routing of the fuel lines is the same. If you have 3 lines, that means the primer bulb is not directly mounted to the carb, rather it is connected to the carb with hoses.

Line 1. Comes from the fuel filter in the tank (smaller diameter hose) directly to the inlet port on the carb. This is the port that is opposite the diaphragm on the carb. Diaphragm is held on with 2 or 4 screws through a chrome plate. Make sure to leave enough hose so the fuel filter will fall to the lowest point of the tank when it is being used.

Line 2. Goes from the other port on the carb to the short side of the primer assembly.

Line 3. Goes from the longer port of the primer assembly and returns to the tank. Sometimes this line will have a simple coupler on the inside of the tank, but it is optional and its only function is to keep the line from slipping out. If yours does not have this coupler, just leave an inch or two of line in the tank.

*If both ports on the primer are the same length, you can test to see which is pushing air out...that's where line 3 goes.

Good luck!

SOURCE: How do I remove the hassel free head of my

I can get you part way there. Remove the spark plug and shove some clean rope in the cylinder to prevent the engine rotating. Take the front housing off to access the clutch assembly, pull off the black plastic cover from the shaft end, and use a torx wrench to loosen the screw in the end of the shaft. After it's loose, the clutch drum will come right off. Unfortunately, I am stuck now trying to get the rest of the clutch assembly off without damaging it.

I inherited a Ryobi 14'' Electro Hornet, but do not know how to change the trimmer line - can you help?


If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

How do you remove the line feed to replace with new. Is is scred on or does it have a lock washer


It should be screwed on. There should be a half sphere-like object on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise to remove.
