    Two recent threads asked about replacing the parts inside the handle of an FS90R trimmer when making a throttle cable replacement. I make this replacement a couple of weeks ago, but failed to shoot pics and post. Sorry, ... I was pressed for time the evening I did the task, and wanted to get finished.

    As promised in a recent thread, I would open my handle and shoot some pics of the handle parts. However, as promised, I would NOT take all the parts out and replace for the sake of pics. So, here are some pics of the insides, in the finished state. Yes, step-by-step would be more helpful, but perhaps these will get somebody out of a predicament. I've taken many pics, made some simple annotations of them, with texts of descriptions. I apologize -- don't do this enough times to really learn. So, my text bubbles are not very elegant, but hopefully they will tell the story. Hang tight, there are quite a few pics, probably have to be spread across several posts.

    Hope this might help somebody ..

    Roger, Stihl needs to put you on staff as an illustrator for either(both) their owners manual or their repair manual--on the other hand I'll have to admit I've not seen their repair manuals.:clapping:

    Did this tonight on my 110. Got apart and said Oh sh--. Just where did these 2 other springs come from. Took me a while but, I got it. Wish I would have paid more attention and looked for this first. My other 2 will go out sometime. I'll be ready for them then.
