Does the fule tank have to be removed to replace the fule lines and if so, how can the 2 screws be removed. There is not enough room to twist them out once you get a hex wrench on them.

Reply: Removing Fuel Tank From Feathlit...

whbrownnc

I don't know if you figured this out... I just had to deal with the same thing.

1. Remove the feeder and the return hoses from the carbeurator. I neglected to pay close attention when I did this, but was told that the line with the fuel filter on it (In my unit, it is the smaller diameter line) fits onto the nipple on the bottom of the carb. The larger diameter line is the return line and connects to the nipple that extends out from the carb at an angle. I have not completed the job, but am fairly sure that this is correct.

2. (I think this is where you got stumped) Removed the plastic housing that covers the combustion chamber, crank case, etc. There are five allen head screws: four around the crank case, and one up near the spark plug.

Once you remove the screws, the plastic housing slides off. It may take a little pulling and tugging, but it should slide off without needing to pry it off (at least that is how it worked out for me.)

3. the two allen-head screws that secure the fuel tank to the plastice engine housing can be easily removed. (NOTE: hang on to the little bushings and remember to use them when attaching the new tank.)

4. After you attach the new tank and secure the plastic engine housing, attach the fuel and return lines as indicated in #1 above.

Hope this helps. And please let me know if I have stated something that turns out to be incorrect.

Hi olddogtom,

Replacing the cable is really a pretty easy project. You will start by removing the trimmer shaft from the engine unit. Once removed the old cable will pull out of the shaft. Take the new cable and apply a bit of automotive type bearing grease to it. Now just slide the new cable into the shaft and reattach the shaft to the engine.

I hope this helps,

Question: Assembly Hub Melting

While using my FL20 weed eater it started smoking at the end of the shaft. I realized that the smoke was the HUB melting were it screws on the shaft. I replaced the hub and after about 20 minutes of use the new hub started melting on the top were it screws on the shaft just like the old one did. Any suggestions why this is getting so hot?

Reply: Assembly Hub Melting

Tom

Jimmy,

I have had the same problem. I'm not sure yet whether I have totally solved the problem, but it appears to be improved.

It is a fairly simple job to loosen and remove 4 screws that hold the handle which houses the trigger and holds the shaft on the motor assembly. Use a hex wrench and carefully remove the screws; then, separate the plastic pieces and remove the shaft from the motor housing. (There is also a screw that holds a plastic piece around the shaft itself that must be loosened.) Pull the cable all of the way out of the shaft from the upper part of the aluminum tube. I greased the cable well with a good high temp. all-purpose grease. (Be certain to grease the ends of the cable well, which are formed into a square shape.) In fact, I removed the cable twice and added big globs of grease on the end that goes into the shaft to the bottom (above line hub assembly where the overheating is occurring).

I should have mentioned that on my Weedeater, I had to replace the dust cap above the line hub assembly. It had deteriorated due to a design flaw (I believe). The dust cap looks like a large nut that screws on a piece coming out of the shaft, with the open side facing toward the top of the shaft. The part costs about $7 plus shipping if you order online.

Hope this helps you. As I said, my FL20 seemed to work OK following this procedure. While I haven't used it to cut weeds yet, I did run it a few minutes; and the overheating did not occur. Good luck! Tom

Question: Gas & Oil Mix

Bo

Mark
Reply: Gas & Oil Mix

Mark

Hi Bo,

Running straight gas in a 2-cycle tool is usually deadly to the tool. Most likely the cylinder and piston have been worn due to the lack of lubrication and the engine no longer has enough compression to run. At minimum the cylinder and piston will need to be replaced. There is likely damage to the crankshaft and connecting rod journal as well. You can find more information about mix ratio's and what happens to a tool when oil is not added to the gas at the following link...

Hi Tommy,

I would guess that the starter spring has broken. It is also possible that there is damage to the starter pulley or the starter housing in at the locations where the starter spring attaches.

As for the spool, it should simply push in and then twist to remove it.

Question: Air Adjustment

Mark
Reply: Air Adjustment

Mark

Hi Tom,

It is best to leave the carb adjustments to a repair shop. If you adjust the carb too lean for even a few seconds you can do serious damage to the engine. Here at our shop I always use a small engine tachometer when I adjust a carb so that I know exactly where the engine RPM's are at all times. Most shops will only charge a small fee to tune your carb for you. It can be money well spent if it ends up saving your engine from damage.

I hope this helps!

Reply: Shat Not Turning

Hi Gus,

I would suspect that the ends of the drive cable or the openings that the cable fit into are worn. You will need to inspect the cable and both ends where it attaches for wear. Any worn parts will need to be replaced.

Sometimes the problem you described can be caused by the shaft sliding out of the engine assembly. In this case you will simply need to push the shaft back into the engine and tighten the locking screws again.

Good luck!

Hi Pat,

You will need to do a little dis-assembly to verify but your guess sounds like the likely cause to me. If so you will need to remove the old shaft and replace it. Also, make sure that the fasteners used to reattach the guard don't interfere with the new cable.

Good luck with your repair!

Question: Choking

Tom

My featherlight weed eater won't run with the choke off, what is the problem?
Mark
Reply: Choking

Mark

Hi Tom,

It sounds like a clogged carburetor to me. The carburetor can become clogged by dirt or other debris. The dirt may get by a damaged or missing air filter. It can enter through a crack in the fuel lines. Some tools use a foam air filter. Over time the filter itself will breakdown and create debris that will enter the carb and clog it. It is a good idea to replace the air filter at least once a year. If fuel is left sitting in an unused engine for more than a couple of months the fuel will begin to breakdown and go bad. As the fuel breaks down it will start to become gel like as well as begin to coat the internal parts of the carburetor with a varnish. The gel and varnish will plug the carburetor so that fuel can no longer flow through it. To get your engine running again you will need to either rebuild or replace the carburetor. When you replace the carburetor it is always a good idea to also replace the air and fuel filters. This helps ensure that more debris won't clog the new carburetor.

There are rebuild kits available for the carb on your trimmer. A rebuild should solve the problem.

Good luck with your repair!

Hi Tom,
I just purchased a featherlight weed eater that has the same problem right out of the box. I called the company and was told that due to California emission standard they had to start building the carburetors differently. So we need to take our brand new weed eater to a repair shop and get the carburetor adjusted. I don't even have any repair shops in my area that will work on it. I wish they had made a note of this on the box so I had been made aware of this before purchasing it. I am really disappointed too, because I just retired my old featherlight that I used the crap out of. Unfortunately I will be returning it and getting a different brand.

Reply: Will Not Stay Running

When you choke you cut off air to allow more fuel into the cylinder during the power stroke, until it warms up which does not take long. Check the air filter. If it is dirty clean it with gasoline by soaking it and squeezing the fuel out of it. If you left the fuel in the tank over the fall and winter, the carburetor will need cleaning using clean gas. You will need to remove it from the block and thoroughly clean it. Watch carefully how you handle any gaskets not to tear them. Place together after cleaning.

This is usually caused by gas that has gone bad from sitting all winter. If you don't use a fuel stabilizer in your tank before you store it in the fall, more than likely it is gas gone bad. Properly dispose of the old gas, mix some new and I bet it will run like new again.

I replaced both fuel lines and the filter. The check valve fell apart on removal. Nobody in my area has one. The eater was running fine before I noticed the supply cracked and leaking. Now it will run for a minute or two then die like it is starving for fuel. I think it is loosing it's prime without the check valve on the return. Does this site sell the check valve?

1 You need to clean the carburetor and then make sure that you use the right mix ratio for the fuel, it sounds as if a diaphram may have a small hole the problem with the rotor head tou put on is one it is too heavy for that model and 2) the nut will not stay threaded as it is too shallow into the reciever so when it stalls it tends to jerk a little backwards and the nut comes undone it is really unsafe to use anything but a string trimer on that machine there is one that holds real heavy duty line and it works perfect. Good luck with the carb usually I replace them as you can get them for about 25.00
I have replaced both fuel lines, but when I pump priming bulb it acts as if it is not working. It will not return to it's form, but stays depressed. The unit will not start but will run if I pour gas in the cylinder. I installed a new spark plug also. The only thing I haven't replaced is fuel filter.

This is a great area to help in fixing problems. I just picked one up that someone was tossing out and the diagram helped me fix it after replacing the lines.

Hi Whit,

You have done well to keep your weed eater running and working for 15 years. Even better to only now have to replace the perished fuel lines.

I found the following useful tips for your problem:

1. Open the gas cap and remove the broken fuels lines, debris and filter

2. Buy a smaller and larger fuel lines and filter.
3. Push the larger fuel line into the larger hole on the tank about 1 inch.

4. Push the smaller fuel line into the other hole in the gas tank. Pull this line through the gas tank cap opening

5. Put the fuel filter on the end of the small gas line.

6. place the smaller fuel line and filter back into the tank.

7. Connect the other end of the small gas line onto the carb

8. Same for larger fuel line

Your good to go!
