I have an echo srm 225 trimmer. Bought a echo srm universal

Customer Question

I have an echo srm 225 trimmer. Bought a echo srm universal blade kit pn *********** This replaces a the trimmer line with an 8" blade. I somehow got the plastic head off without the shaft assembly attached. The shaft assembly is still connected to the gear box. I have tried removing shaft assembly by putting a toool and interlocking wit the gear box housing and turning clockwise - the shaft assembly will not come off. Then I tried -with locking tool in place and turning clockwise with the trimmer head attached which provides more leverage- still no budging. Options?
