Shindaiwa Trimmer

Hey guys I recently bought a lot of shindaiwa trimmers, mainly to fix and use..I have one I'm not sure of the model mumder, maybe omeone here will know it. It's not a T270, the set up is different, the label is torm but T can make up t--3(possibly)0, The gas tank holder doesn't wrap around the gas tank it has a "stand" I guess is the best way to describe it.It looks like my t-27 but isn't a t-27 But the t-27 housing fits on it. I wish I could post some pics that might make it easier. The distinquising marks are the gas tank holder. I looked on Partstree.com to try and locate a model, but I didn't see anything to resemble t, Also the serial number is screatched off or wore off. thanks in advance

It could be a T-20. I beleive they also use to make a T-350.

If memory serves me correctly, the T25 and T250 share the same fan / clutch housing as the T27.

Posting a picture would be quickest.

You have what looks like a T27 engine and shaft, but the cylinder cover was once replaced with a T270 cylinder cover. The T27 trimmers had the "primer pump" fuel line and the stand like yours has. If you could post a picture of the back or recoil side of the engine, I could possibly help you out even further with identification.

After further looking at it, I think I need to correct myself for the other post. This trimmer is a early serial number NON EPA T270 and someone has put on a T27 stand. The fuel systems were pretty much identical between the T27 and EARLY T270 engines. Shindaiwa quickly upgraded the T270 system to match the T230 style fuel lines and tank breather for parts interchangeability and better performance. Make sure you put the two other screws back in that holds the engine to the red clutch housing. I can see a gap there.

If you ever need to get parts, look for the early serial or NON EPA parts lists for the T270 trimmer. The later EPA compliant T270 engines has a completely different carb, fuel lines, tank, etc, which yours doesn't have.

I've checked all my own factory correct T27, early T270 and late T270 trimmers to compare with how yours has been put together and to make myself feel that everything I am saying is correct, this time.
