Question: Pe550 Gas Edger

dgpopa

what parts to order for pull start. I still have some parts that were still OK . the plastic parts are no good.
Hi dgpopa Without being able to see the condition of ALL your starter parts, that is an unanswerable question. Check PAGE C and inspecting your OLD starter assembly, trying to decide which parts you need. It appears some of the starter parts may be unavailable, like the STARTER CUP, which iooks to be plastic.

Question: Flywheel

1466437

what is the purpose of the flywheel washer and can any washer be used in place of the flywheel washer
Hello, The flywheel washer keeps the sleeve/spacer from wearing into or interfering with the body of the flywheel. You can get away with using another washer. The OEM washer is not special.
Question: Huh?

1501179

What is difference between different types of pe550? It says 25' of fuel line. I need 2 different sizes. Will it work for both sizes and is it really 25'?
WJA
Hello 1501179,

The Weed Eater part number 530069599 Fuel Line can be used for both lines for the Weed Eater PE550 Gas Trimmer. And it is 25 inches in length.
Question: Edger 550

GJMahall

It appears after time my flexible fuel line piping has suffered dry rot and cracked off. Pumping the bulb puts fuel on the ground. What do I replace this with? Do I need a whole carburetor replacement or just the flexible lines?
WJA
Hello GJMahall,

I think your best bet is to replace the 580236101 Fuel Tank. It has the new fuel lines, Fuel Cap and fuel Filter all included with it. For your carburetor you may want to go with the part number 530069832 Carburetor Repair Kit. We do have an article and video on How to Rebuild a Two-Cycle Engine Carburetor. Hope this helps.

I have a weed eater edger pe 550. The blade won't spin. The engine starts and runs fine.
It is possible that the flexible drive shaft that goes through the tubing to the gearhead where the blade is mounted has broken or stripped or retracted somewhow; no longer engaging the gear head. If the machine has a clutch it will require some disassembly of the tubing AT the clutch to check operations. Can you spin the blade freely by hand, or is it locked up?
Question: Ignition Module

chazmsut

Is changing the ignition module very hard? It looks like the blade, gaurd, housing all have to come off first. What is the proper procedure for this job? I'm hoping you can save me a little time because I hope I don't have to completely disassemble the edger. Thank You

Hello chazmsut,

We do have an article and video on How to Install an Ignition Coil on a Lawn Trimmer. Which should give you a good example on how to install it on your unit. The gap between the coil and flywheel should be .014

Hope this helps,

Question: Weed Eater PE550 Gas Trimmer

CherOhkee54

What direction is the blade supposed to turn? Should it be turning away from me in the direction in which I'm walking? Mine turns backward toward me. That doesn't seem right.
WJA
Hello CherOhkee54,

Because of the blade being on the left side of the machine. The way it is designed the blade will turn clockwise or toward you as you mentioned.

Hope this helps,

Yes it does help, thank you!

Question: Weedeater Drive Gear Stripped

Ralphie

How do I remove the old drive gear?
I would like to know the same thing! Took the 4 screws off the handle. removed the arm and was able to pull the broke cable out but there's a star shaped plastic guide sleeve, the cable goes through, in there that is not shown on the drawing.
It seams that the other broke end is stuck in this sleeve.
Trying now to figure out how the dust cover, nut on end where head attaches, comes off?
i also would like to get help doing this

Question: Carb Setting

Russ

weed eater PE550 22CC--what are the carb settings for both high & low, starting from full turns in, and backing them out?
Usually the best way to readjust the carb is to turn the H & L needles two turns out from stop. This should get you started and you can refine from there.
