Weed Eater Model GTI 19T Fuel Tank

I am in need of a fuel tank for this trimmer. Do you sell them, or by chance know where I may purchase one?

Thank you for your time.


Hi Stephen,

Your model of weedeater should be in a museum!!!  Unfortunately the fuel tank is discontinued and not available.



FL26 Oil to Gas Mixing Ratio

What is the oil to gas mixing ratio for this model?



Hi Bill,

The mix is 40:1.



FL26 Part

The bushing that the dust cup screws over FL26 Featherlite (part #13 in diagram) that then attaches to the flex shaft on my weed eater is wallowed out, allowing it to move on the flex shaft.  Is there anywhere I can find a new one? The shaft looks good, and the head functions fine, it will just stop spinning when that bushing assembly works it’s way up and off the flex shaft.



Hi Joe,

The part you are looking for is the dust cap, its part number is 530095563



SST25CE Trimmer Line


I have a Featherlite Weed Eater SST25 (What box said) Have the instruction Manual for SST25/SS25C. The Weed Eater says SST25CE. This was a Reman Weed Eater bought at XS Cargo. What size line do I need? Is there a replacement spool I can get for it? If not how do I put replacement line on to this?

Thank you.


Hi Steven,

The SST25CE Weedeater uses a tap’n go dual system trimmer head.  As it is a 25cc engine I would recommend the use of trimmer line for large gas trimmers.  Please check out our trimmer line ranges below:



Where Can I Buy a FL20C Weedeater Featherlite

My weed eater has stopped working and I’m trying to replace it. I cant find a featherlite FL25C anywhere. Can I order one from your company? I’m a very small/short female and I need a light weight weed eater.



Hi Tammie,

Can you tell us the problem with your existing weedeater?  Alternatively we have compared a number of existing models, and new ones that you may find useful below:



SST25CE Primer Bulb

I need a new primer bulb. I see that it is hermetically sealed on a stem so I cannot just buy a generic bulb. Please email so I can order it today.



Hi Dennis

You are correct the SST25CE featherlite bulb in incorporated into the carburetor.  Not the best design the manufacturer has produced.

Old Weedeater Featherlite Parts

I have a weedeater model 711334

3pwes 18 cc gas trimmer. I cannot find any information on replacing the fuel line or who carries it.

Your site does not even have the model listed.

It is about 8 or 10 years old.



Hi Derek

Please check out our page below on repairing perished gas lines:

For your age of weedeater I would suggest the parts 530069216 and 530069247.
