It would probably be easier and cheaper to just go to a local store that sells Stihl products. Bring the spool that you want replaced with you.

    Simple solution Mike is to enter the model number into any small engine replacement dealers search box. From there they will show you an exploded view of the whacker, and give you a part number. Once you have a part number use any search engine to find a replacement head. You should be aware that depending on it’s age you may find the part listed as unavailable or obsolete. If you have no luck online, find your local Stihl dealer and they may still have the part sitting on their shelf gathering dust. Here is a safe site I have ordered from in the past:

    If you buy things like this off the I/N you are going to get the wrong thing as a general rule…Go to a Stihl dealer and save yourself some misery…
