Question: Lower Drive Shaft

What part do i need when the cutting head frequently free wheels as not engaged with drive shaft but on stopping and re starting it works for a while and then repeats outof gear free wheeling. Modelfx26sc
WJA
Reply: Lower Drive Shaft

WJA

Hello 1272750,

You may want to check the ends of your drive shafts to make sure they are not rounded. Look at the the upper drive shaft connection and lower drive shaft connections are not worn. Make sure you have a good connection at the coupling between the upper and lower shafts.

Probably not but someone at small motor repair shop can do it for you, or do it yourself as it is an easy task, just cut the fuel line at an angle so it can be forced into tank far enough to get hold of it with needle nose pliers.

Question: Featherlite Weedeater

renea

I don't see where to order the gasket that goes between the carburetor adapter&the carburetor..have I overlooked it?
WJA
Reply: Featherlite Weedeater

WJA

Hello renea,

If the model number is a Weed Eater Featherlite SST 25. The gasket you are looking for is included in the gasket kit part number, 530071750. Before ordering the kit, you may want to double check the model number. There are quite a few different models of the Featherlite made by Weed Eater and they all don't use the same parts.

I am about to order a replacement carb for my Weedeater Featherlite but have the same problem. The gasket kit only shows one gasket that looks like the ones on my trimmer. It is a model FX26S. Would I have to order another part or will the new carb come with the gaskets?
WJA
Reply: Featherlite Weedeater

Hello 1181904,

The carburetor does not come with the gasket. To get the carburetor gasket you would also have to order part number 530071750 gasket kit.

-WJA
When I got the weed eater out this spring it would not start more like stay running. so checking thing out finding both fuel line are cracked at tanks.I have replaced the lines but think I may have done something wrong.
It will not run off choke. What line dose the filter go on top(closes to primer) or bottom?
The primer stays collapsed when pushed also. Also the return line how long is it to be?
Bottom tank like filter or just in tank?

Question: Weed Eater Trimmer - Line Won't ...

jessman1128

Weed Eater FX26SC. Purchased it last year and shortly after buying it something broke and the line wouldn't spin fast enough to cut anything. Took it to the local authorized repair center and they fixed it under warranty. Well, the same problem popped up again just the other day and it's no longer under warranty. I've been told it'll be cheaper to buy a new one than pay someone to fix this. Hoping to fix it myself. I have the trimmer taken apart - took apart the shaft pieces and took off the engine cover. Not sure what to look for though. The shaft pieces all appear to be fine.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Question: Line Doesn't Spin Fast Enough To...

jessman1128

Weed eater FX26SC. Was using it the other day when something apparently broke because it no longer spins the line fast enough to cut anything. The engine starts fine, and it accelerates if I press the lever, but the line barely picks up any speed. It just goes around in a much slower circle than normal. Any ideas what the problem might be? Thanks!

I know that the screw on top of the pulley holds the rope down but how does it wind around the pulley. Does the rope feed through the hole on top or through the slot on the side of the pulley

Question: Walbro Carb Adjustment

ken52m

Where to get a vtool to adjust screws
UtahAV
Reply: Walbro Carb Adjustment

UtahAV

Hi ken52m,

The best option is to take it to a repair shop and have them adjust it.
There are a couple of reasons I say this.

First, any carb from about the last 10 years will need special tools to make any adjustments due to EPA laws. These tools are not meant for sale to the general public and the EPA has stiff fines for "tampering" with a carburetor.

Second, modern 2-cycle engines are built to very tight tolerances and use very little oil in the fuel in order to burn clean enough for the EPA requirements. This makes the engines very sensitive to being adjusted lean. Running the engine for even a few seconds set too lean can cause serious engine damage. You really need a tachometer to properly adjust modern 2-cycle engines.

I hope this helps,

Question: Carb Adjustment

is there anyway of adjusting the carburator besides the idle speed adjustment?

Reply: Carb Adjustment

ShotOut

There is. Either by buying the tool for it on Ebay or by making your own (use automotive type 22 gauge wire connectors). Tap the wire connectors down over the heads of the L or H screw. The plastic will expand and then you can grip them and adjust them.

Had the same problem not able to adjust the L and H screws. I took it out and cut a slots with a hack saw, so I can use a screw driver to make the adjustment.

Reply: Carb Adjustment

okiejoe, try removing the L and H adjusting screws, us a hack saw to cut the grove on the head so you can use a slotted screw driver to adjust L and H screws. Try to count the counter clockwise turn when removing the screws on H and L. So it would be easier when putting the screws back. If you got a tremlin tool, you can cut the slots on the screws without taking it out. Good luck

There is a way to adjust the Air Screws. You must purchase the tool. I purchased mine from a Lawn Mower Repair Shop. The Setting For each screw is 1 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

I have a featherlite extreme. The model number is FX26S, and by the serial number, it looks like a type 2. My choke lever has snapped and I cannot tell which I need - Walbro or Zama. It is yellow, but I don't see color in either description. Which one is the correct one ?

Question: Weedeater

Mike

My weedeater stops running and has no acceleration when I flip it to RUN. I start my weedeater in full choke and it runs but in slow idle. Then I wait about 10 seconds, I flip it to half choke, my problem begins. It starts accelerating then cuts off immediately. Same thing when I flip it to RUN.

Hi Mike,

It sounds like you engine is not getting enough fuel. The carburetor is likely plugged.

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 is a carburetor rebuild kit available. It is part #545081808 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com .

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Weedeater Type

Jose

I don't know how to tell what type of FX26S I have. I checked the data plate and the model number and don't see a type. Also the parts diagram doesn't show a difference between type 1 and type 2. So I guess my question is how do I determine which type I have?

You need to find the serial number which is located on transparent material. If there is a -1 at the end of serial number you have type 1. If you find a -2 you have a type 2.
There was a label with a white background and an SKU number with barcode. That won't give you what you are looking for.
