    Ok I fitted the speed feed but because of that black spacer it puts the line further out than the original head so the line doesn't get cut off at the guard if you know what I mean . would be ok if you didn't run a guard but I run the 525lst guard on mine so I put the old head back on and had a whinge to the wife about wasting $50

    Would you have the part number handy NLALM?
    My dealer & whoever they talk to up the chain, still reckon it can't be done.

    ed its 034580 The washer comes with the blade , so you get all the parts but no blade so work that out.. Im thinking if the black plastic spacer that you puton before the speed feed was a bit thinner it would be better. when I get a chance I will take some photos and show what im talking about

    My dealer didn't believe me either I had to use their computer and show them the video, first they were saying you cant put a blade on it.

    Thanks NLALM. I think I get what you are talking about.

    I wonder if you could drill out some of the arbor threads so it clears the splines. There is a chrome coloured arbor with the same thread, but it's longer than the brass coloured one. Might be able to drill some of it's thread and still have plenty of thread left.

    I don't have anything here with me ATM, but seems like it might work to get rid of the black spacer.

    Otherwise, make the line cutter on the guard a bit longer.

    Why do you need/want a line cutter?
