Question: Ryobi Blower/vac Impeller Part
I need a replacement impeller for my blower/vac attachment (part #791-182506) they are saying part is no longer available - is there a compatible impeller that I can use?
Reply: Ryobi Blower/vac Impeller Part
I have been doing some research on the 791-182506 impeller. Unfortunately I haven't been able to locate a substitute part for it. You may want to see if you can find a used blower for sale and use it for parts.
Question: Ryobi 340BV Starter Not Engagine
I have a Ryobi 340BV leaf blower. The pull cord pulley gear will not move forward to engage the flywheel to start the engine. I lubed it up and it moves freely but won't overcome the return spring. If I remove the return spring it will move forward but seems to bind when engaging and then will not release. Is the recoil assembly a common failure item? Any ideas?
Reply: Ryobi 340BV Starter Not Engagine
I had same issue tried that same result,tried dave999 reasoning new parts = OBSOLETE parts go figure! Then I got looking @ the individual parts the FRICTION Spring on the under side of the engaging sprocket wasn't doing its job friction. So I tried roughing it up no success. Then I tried bending the sprig itself .Take it off the sprocket carefully squeeze together and a little passed and VAALAA!!Fixed it good to go no $$ NO obsolete! I don't know how long it will last?
Question: Ryobi 340 BV Pull Cord Pulley Ge...
I have a Ryobi 340BV leaf blower that is 6-7 years old. The pull cord pulley gear will not engage the flywheel when I pull the cord. It moves forward but not far enough. If I force it it will engage but I can't pull it to see if it starts - it will grind and disengage. It appears that there is too much play in the pulley gear and starter pulley so that they deflect when trying to engage and turn over the flywheel.
Is this a common problem? I can buy those two parts for $10 plus shipping ($20) or the whole recoil housing assembly $17 + shipping ($25).
I hate to spend $20-25 and not fix it. I can buy a new one for $100.
But if I have confidence that it will solve my problem I might do it.
Any experience out there?

i beleive that you have answered your own question. buy a new one of the same model and you will then have spare parts.
Unless you know that the trimmer was working before the starter broke replace it.
