ryobi 790r weed trimmer spark screen!

Good Evening,
Could anyone tell me where the spark arresting screen is on a ryobi 790r weed trimmer?.
According to the diagram if I'm looking at the right one since my number does not show up. It should be seen as soon as I take the muffler off but there is nothing there.
The number off mine is 40A6987 ser. # 004152187 & the date it was built was 2000.
Thank you!
Will,

It's probably inside the muffler if it has one. Sometimes the muffler comes apart in halves.

I have a couple of Ryobi's and it looks like that, unlike a lot of 2 cycle mufflers, the muffler can't be easily pulled apart.

I wouldn't worry about it.
thanks,

Thank you & your right I don't think they are meant to be opened & they sure don't look like they do on the MTD web site which shows it right behined or underneath the muffler & they sell them. It looks like in this case I would have to but a new muffler!. I tried looking in mine & she is all plugged up not sure if I want to put money in this thing!
Thank you for your help.
