Have an Efco trimmer that needs a shaft and some Stihl KM parts laying around. Should have a split shaft hybrid by morning. Pics tomorrow.

That poulan pro one I was working on needed more $$$ in the motor then it was worth. I told him to buy a PHO so he could run the saw trimmer attachment.

Its alive and works. Found out that the blower and pruner attachments will not work. Efco powerhead turns in the opposite direction to the Stihl.

It was a fairly simple project. Stihl tube is bigger, 25mm. Efco is 22 or 23mm. Stihl tube was a press fit over the Efco tube. I left 10 inches of Efco tube sticking out of the powerhead to give it strength. Used the Stihl KM 90 drive shaft, KM 55 tube. Put an out Weedeater handle/barrier bar on it.

Do pics have a size limit here?

With Photobucket everything gets resized automatically and you never give it a thought.
