    I am a female who owns a harley, but am no mechanic. I can't do what the first expert ask me to. I just wanted to know what to hook the other end of the line to.

  • skwfields Jul 10, 2010

    thanks. bike runs great, i just got it tuned up at a harley dealer a few days ago. I think you are right about it probably going to the air filter housing because the other end is connected to back side of carburator. I will attempt to do it but if not I can get a guy i know to do it. thank you

Sounds like a vacuum line. If the bike runs without it with no problems, you can tie the line up, and plug it - however, I suggest trying to reconnect it to prevent further issues - as a broken vacuum may cause lack of power do to the lack of proper vacuum.
If it comes of the carburator, it most likely is one (if more than one, should only be one or two for this size engine) that connects to the airfilter housing, or to the back side of the carborator.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Carbuerator control coil is routed arround the right side of the steering hand between the right gas tasnk lower mounting tab and gas tank.And through the carbeurastor control coil bracket to the carbeurator . The bracket is attached to the top motor mount. This bracked it angled to meet the coil coming around the right of fromt down tube. A rubber boot connects the carburetor to the intake manifold, secured with 2 3mm Allen head, Phillips or slotted head hose-type. to remove the carburetor from the boot, leaving the boot connected to the manifold; thus, loosen only the bolt for the clamp on the carburetor side of the boot. Ease the carburetor out of the manifold boot; note the position of the notch on the boot that aligns the carburetor into place. Disconnect the choke knob from the mounting bracket on the left side of the bike; leave the cable connected to the carburetor. Leave the idle adjustment cable and the fuel line connected to the carburetor. Label and disconnect the remaining 2 lines on the back of the carburetor. One is the carburetor vent line going to the evaporative canister or exiting just forward of the rear swing arm or inside the right side cover; the other is the vacuum source for the fuel petcock and the air switch valve . Label each of the two throttle cables and its position on the carburetor; disconnect the cables. Loosen but do not remove the 4 Phillips head bolts holding the domed plastic cover (top of the carburetor) in place - there is a spring under this cover that may launch the cover and bolts away from the work area if the bolts are completely removed. Holding the cover down, remove the bolts. Set the bolts aside someplace safe. Carefully remove the top cover and the spring pushing it up; set them aside someplace safe. Examine the black rubber diaphragm inside the carburetor attached to the slide. Be EXTREMELY careful with this diaphragm; if it is pierced, torn, or twisted out of shape, the entire slide assembly must be replaced. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Replace rear wiper assembly


The wiper arm has a cover on the left end that pops up after gently spreading the two bottom sides apart. That allows the arm to swing out for cleaning the window or replacing the blade.
The wiper blade assembly attaches to the end of the arm . It is pressed in and will pop out with a little force rotating the left side away from the arm. It pops back in with a little push. The arm remains attached to the rotating shaft assembly.
I believe you can then replace just the rubber blade and not the whole blade assembly, if that is your fancy.

Looking for a picture of back brake system for a 1999 ford f-150


Hello, I can tell you where everything is at. Did all my lines in Feb 2011. The rear lines on a F150 come from each rear wheel and they are rubber until the end of their brackets. Metal lines take over and meet at a vent tube holder on the Drivers side of the axle. An overhead rubber line with a splitter is bolted to a threaded vent tube and each rear wheel line fits in the brass block that is part of the Rubber line.

Each rear wheel line has a different size fitting to avoid mix ups. The brake line is the same diameter throughout. All use inverted flare fittings. It is a pain to get the fittings beforehand as they are mixed sizes.

The rubber line with a splitter meets a metal line topside of the frame around the frame hump for the rear wheels. The line is on rubber hangers as it travels toward the front of the truck and meets a metal union just short of the fuel filter. The metal line goes through the frame and tightly runs past the bottom of the Drivers fender and goes outside the frame until it meets the front wheelwell.

The same line crosses back into the inside of the frame and runs parallel with the frame, past the A arms and then ends up attaching to the ABS unit.

The Dealer probably does not have preformed lines. Every combination of bedsize and cabsize will determine how long some of the brake lines are. (Based on wheelbase.)

You have 2 choices. Get a preformed Stainless kit with front lines too, around $200. Make your own and spend hours assembling, bending, and flaring fittings after buying the line and the fittings.

You can go with cheap lines or use what I did, a copper/nickel mixed metal line that Volvo perfected with an extended salt corrosion resistance. It really is a job you only want to do once.
Gotta hand it to the brake mechanics who do it every day.

Here is a Summary. 2 Rubber hoses from each wheel, 2 metal lines to the threaded brass block on the vent tube. 1 rubber hose with the brass block. Then a long run of brakeline, then a connection around the fuel filter, and another long run of brakeline outside and back inside the frame to the ABS unit.

I wish you luck on this repair. I hope my Solution is very helpful.

I own a 13 yrs old Poulan 2350 chainsaw and need to replace the fuel line connecting the fuel filter (inside the tank) to the carburetor. The existing line has decayed and broken. My problem is one of...


If you have the saw I think you do, here is the deal. You have two hoses that go to the tank, one is a larger diameter than the other. The smaller diam. hose runs from the tank to the "inlet" side of the carburetor. (the fitting closest to the fuel pump cover, held on by one screw). This line rest in the bottom of the tank attached to a fuel filter. The larger diam. line attaches to the "tank" side of the primer or "outlet" side and sits in the tank about 1/4"-1/2", (there is generally a fitting on this end to prevent it from being pulled out of the hole). The third line, usually the same diam. as the fuel line, attaches to the primer "carb" fitting or "suction" side and attachs to the other fitting on the carb. The lines are best fed by cutting them at an angle on one end (approx. 2") and feed the angled end into the hole from the outside of the tank. Once you get about two inches inside the tank, reach in with a pair of needle nose and pull the hose the rest of the way. Sometimes you may need to remove the carburetor to gain access to the holes. Hope this helps.

I have a leak coming from my power steering, and i dont know how to check and see where the leak is and what to look for.


There are two lines coming out of the back of the power steering pump. One is the high pressure line and threaded into the pump. The other is the return line, and has a metal tube coming out of the back of the pump. There should be a short rubber hose connecting this tube with another metal line that goes to the steering box. There are two metal lines threaded into the top of the steering box. The steering box is located at the end of the steering column and is bolted to the drivers side frame rail at the front of the vehicle. You will have to remove the left front tire to access these fittings. The rubber hose will be attached with hose clamps and are prone to leak. To tighten the threaded fittings, you will need a 16mm open end wrench, or preferably a flare nut wrench of the same size.

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower


On the FL1500:
  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.

One fuel line (the on with the filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other hose comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. A third section of fuel line goes from the top fitting on the primer bulb to the top fitting on the carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Bissell proheat turbo 2x upright cleaner -how do I reassmeble?



Yeah, it’s annoying that the manual doesn’t give more detailed instructions and drawings to help with this, because you do have to take the roller assembly apart sometimes to clean built-up carpet lint off the unit properly. If you don’t do this, I’d expect you’d have more problems.

I have a different model number Bissell Proheat than yours. Yours may have different parts or go together differently than mine, but I'll tell you how I do it on mine and you can try my way out and see if it helps you.

(In all cases where I use left vs. right or front vs. back, as when these terms are used with a car, I am facing the front of the Bissell. I am NOT behind the Bissell, where I would stand when cleaning carpet with it.)


Here's how I put it together. This takes much longer to describe than to do, once you figure out where everything goes and you get the hang of doing it!

Attach the left arm with the two silver rods (ONLY attach the left arm here-- leave the corresponding right arm, which looks like the left arm except it has no silver rods, off the bottom unit of the Bissell, for now) to the left side of the Bissell, with a silver screw with a built-in washer. The screw hole is on the back end of the arm and the arm dips down towards the front of the Bissell and holds the two brushes in position so that they can turn without striking the top of the underside of the Bissell or dragging on the floor.

Put a small silver washer on each long, silver metal post, where the roller brushes will go, and slide it all the way to the left.

Put the larger rubber belt around both metal posts, about halfway to two-thirds of the way down the metal posts.

Slide the brushes halfway down the metal posts and attach the larger rubber belt to the cog wheel on the left side of each roller brush. Then slide both roller brushes with the large rubber belt attached all the way to the left so that the cog wheels are against the inside of the left arm. As you move the roller brushes almost all the way to the left, you may be blocked from reaching the end until you carefully work the rubber belt around a plastic flange on the inside of the left arm, but do this and be sure the roller brushes are up against the inside of the left arm. Make sure the rubber belt is still on each of the cog wheels when the roller brushes are pushed all the way left. If you turn one roller brush, the other should turn, too, because of the belt attached to both cog wheels.

Put the small belt around the small cog wheel on the bottom unit of the Bissell behind the right end of the back roller brush, and also around the cog wheel on the right end of the back roller brush. (The right cog wheel on the front roller brush is the only one of five cog wheels without a belt, when everything is assembled correctly.)

Put a small silver washer on the right end of the silver rod passing through the back roller brush.

NOW attach the right arm, using a silver screw with a washer, to the middle screw hole on the right side of the bottom unit of the Bissell. The right arm should mirror the left arm, so that the two arms hold both roller brushes in position on the right side and straight across the bottom unit of the Bissell. It is normal for the roller brushes and arms to be able to flex up and down a bit, when everything is put together correctly. The built-in washers on the silver screws which attach the arms keep the arms and roller brushes in the generally correct position but allow them to flex.

Now using your fingers you should be able to slowly spin the roller brushes without the brushes contacting the top of the bottom unit of the Bissell and without dragging too low against the floor. Check one more time and be sure the belts are positioned correctly around four of the five cog wheels.

If everything seems right, attach the two side covers. These are not interchangeable; the left cover only fits on the left. The short black screw goes in the back screw hole, and the long black screw goes in front.

Then attach the front cover. It's important to be careful that the hooks on the front cover are inside the side cover holes designed to hold the hooks before trying to tighten the last screw through the tab on top of the front cover. If you aren't careful about this, it's easy for the front cover to be out of position or to break its tab.

Try powering up the Bissell and see if the rollers spin correctly. Remember that the handle must not be locked upright and the trigger must be depressed with the Bissell turned on before the roller brushes will spin. (Sometimes people complain that nothing happens with the unit turned on and the trigger depressed when the only problem is that the handle is in the locked upright position.)

Good luck!
