Replacing string trimmer line

I friend gave me his "broken" weedwacker last year. Broken in that it needed the fuel filter cleaned.
Anyway, it's a Craftsman 22cc Weedwacker. No model# that I can find. I haven't been able to locate a manual online for it.
For the life of me, I can't figure out how to load and wind the string so that it dispenses. It just jams up.

Generally (a couple that I've owned), there is a push detent so that you can remove the spool, or spool and some sort of cover. Clean the dirt, grass, etc., out of things, so the "tap" advance will work.
Get the right size "string." The spools on the ones I have owned have either a notch or small hole to retain one end of the string. Then, fill the spool with string. There is usually an arrow to indicate which way the string is to be wound.
Snap the spool/cover back in, threading the string out through the exit port. Pull enough out -- maybe 6 -8 " to get things started.
Start trimmer. Tap on ground or other firm surface to cause the string to feed. There is usually a knife to cut it to length
