If you decide to run a longer trimmer line, you need to completely remove the guard. If you only remove the blade, the trimmer line will get too long and get wrapped up in the guard. As the string wraps around the guard it increases the resistance on the engine and causes the engine to lose its power and RPMs.

I cant remove the spool to change the line. it appears to be stuck.
Well there is either a screw knob that must be unscrewed first, or you aren’t removing it correctly. Some just Pull/pop right off. Others must be pushed in and twisted (Like a child proof cap) usually in the opposite direction the line spins. Pull the cord a tiny bit to see which way it spins, then push down/in on the spool (its spring loaded) and twist opposite. Most of today’s trimmers will give you the spool like that. Putting it back on it simply the reverse action.

WHERE DO I BUY BOTTEM CASEING FOR SPOOL
I need to replace to fuel lines on a Craftman 32cc trimmer. The old ones cracked apart. 2 of the lines look like 1/8″ OD one line looks like 3/32″ OD. Larger line looks like it hooks to filter, Smaller line to a fitting in the gas tank. I am assuming the smaller line ges to the primer inlet. My question is the lines penetrate the bottom of the gas tank. How do they seal. How do I install the filter and the fitting. I am assuming to thread the new lines in from the bottom of the tank and pull through the gas cap hole. Then I attach filter or fitting and pull back through. So do I pull the line so as to create a seal from the swell caused by the fitting/filter?
Depending on the brand of line you use, Tygon line is self sealing but seems to shrink faster then factory supplied because of the ethanol in the gas. The stone gas filter is designed to fall to the lowest part of the tank, not stop the line from falling out.
