stihl 4mix edger

I have the 4 mix edger and trimmer.

on the edger, the motor moved to the right, so the handle to hold it, doesnt line up with the throttle button...

its kind of hard to explain, ill get some pix tommorrow...

but if anyone knows what im talking about, how can I get it back inline again? thanks

Are you saying the motor rotated on the tube? If that is the case there is a screw that holds tension.

Just loosen the screw a couple of rounds with a torx head and rotate the motor back in line. The same can be done with the throttle control, handle and edger head; all using the same tool.

The motors screw is on the bottom of the engine where it meets the drive tube.
