Question about Husqvarna Forest & Garden 125l 18" Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

Installing the flexible drive shaft from the motor to the rotor head. I pulled off the rotor head thinking I had to do this to replace a new plastic line assy. Now I can't get the flexible shaft to re-engage the motor drive. I've tried standing the unit in a vertical position with the motor on the floor hoping I could drop the shaft a couple of inches and it would line up on the way in. I've only pulled the shaft out about 4" since I tool off the head. Then, after I had the head off I saw the hole on it where you're supposed to insert a punch to lock the upper plate and unscrew the old line assy.

At the motor drive end, (where the engine is).. the end of the flex drive should mate with the clutch housing. You may just need to remove the clutch-housing cover in front of the motor to access it and turn it until it accepts the flex drive.

How to install drive shaft on a husqvarna 322l weed eater 1999 model


The curved shaft machine has a flexible drive shaft like a speedo cable, slacken the two tube pinch bolts, these are accessed on the r/h side of the grey plastic handle through holes in the plastic housing,, remove the two mushroom headed screws either side of the plastic handle,don't lose the black o rings under the screw heads, do not remove any of the plastic housing screws, now carefully draw the tube out through the plastic handle/trigger assembly, once out pull out the old drive shaft, grease the new drive shaft and push back into the tube, once fully in turn the end to make sure the trimmer head turns, now feed the tube back through the trigger housing, make sure it is fully back home and the square end of the new shaft has entered the square hole in the drive drum, re tighten the pinch bolts, start the engine, if the head does not turn, slacken the pinch bolts and push the tube further in, re fit the two mushroom headed screws.

Mine's a bent shaft. I guess only Victa agents can replace/repair the centrifugal clutch or internal broken cable?


not necessarily--- the broken drive cable can be removed /replaced by removing the trimmer head from the shaft at the bottom
undo the clamp and if there is a small screw/ bolt into the shaft undo that as well and pull the head off
the flexible drive cable will slip out
check the ends and they should be square in form
Mostly the cable breaks but occasionally that square section will wear round
slip in a new cable and reassemble

I Have a Stihl grass trimmer FS36. The plastic casing holding the drive shaft heats up and melt. what is the problem


If you're refering to the item i have highlighted then remove the driveshaft from the plastic flexible liner, clean shaft, re-grease and replace. You'll probably fing the shaft has become dry and has rubbed, causing it to get hot. The plastic liner should not be spinning in the drive tube assembly so you may need to get a new 'flexible liner' that fits snug.

This sounds like the flexible drive shaft inside of the main shaft has a stripped ferrule. In order for you to fix this, you will have to take the main shaft off of the motor housing and pull the flexible shaft out of the inside. The replacement part number is 530056570 and should be about $12 to replace. Call the number on the unit to order replacement parts or go to your local sears.

I believe what you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the trimmer head to remove the head from the lower shaft. After the head is off you can look down into where the shaft goes and be able to use some needlenose pliers or something of the sort to pull the broken part out.<!-- from fixya rte -->

remove the head from the shaft( tube) and remove the broken drive cable
get and fit new cable and then reattach the head to the shaft ( tube )
the gears in the head are fairly robust but the drive is a cable which twists up and pulls out of the drive squares at either end

Stripped plastic coupler on output shaft of Dremel model 277


I'm guessing, but I think that the Sears tool uses the same flexible coupling. If you go to www.searspartsdirect.com and put in the model 572610031, you can look at the diagram and decide for yourself. I think the part costs $2.57. If it's the right one, I'd order two or three for the future.
Hope this helps.
