Re: istuctions for fuel line installation on weed wacker
The esiest way to figure it out is to take the line with the filter and put it on one nipple then push on the primer a few times and see if fuel comes out of the other, if no fuel then switch the line over to the other. But if im not mistaken the filter will go to the bottom.

There should be clamps on either end of the fuel line..1.. empty the fuel out of the weed wacker ..2..loosen the clamps..3..remove the hose ..make sure you are careful when replacing any fuel lines..so you dont puncture a brand new one..tighten the clamps good but not too hard or you can pucturethe hose that way too and make sure its the right one for that model. make sure the line is also fuel resistant..gasoline can eat through the wrong type of line. You should be able to buy the fuel line and clamps at any hardware store:)remember to ask for help from someone in the right department
I add fuel stabilizer if fuel is still in mowers, etc. for the winter since it isn't easy to totally drain it.
Just a day ago, our rototiller was limbered up for the garden and I shot 'starter fluid' (ether) into the air intake before even trying it and it fired on the second pull.
You can buy the stuff at any auto parts store and even dollar stores.
The line with the fuel filter in the end comes out of the tank and it goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The other line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb, and the third section goes from the top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Got it? lol Hope this helped and best wishes.
Take your old line to a lawn mower parts store, ask for a new gas line of the same size. I would buy about a foot long. Push the line in the tank down into the tank(doing this with the tank empty), remove gas cap, turn upside down, a filter and your old line will fall out. Press the new gas line through the hole, push enough through that it comes out of the filler hole, place filter onto the new line, drop into tank, cut off excess and reattach to the carburator.
This can be a little tricky, the filter is in the tank connected to the line. The line is pulled through a hole in the tank which seals only because the line is the correct outter diameter to seal the hole and not collapse the interior. Fuel line and filters are available at most places that carry outdoor power equipment parts but you must make sure the line is the exact size inner and outter as the original.
If the trimmer has a primer bulb the line goes from the tank to the bulb and then to the carburetor, a second line goes from the carburetor back to the tank, don't get them mixed up.
Have these unit been stored with fuel in them or sitting around for a long period of time? If so the carbs may need to be overhauled. Also check for a clogged fuel filter and vacuum test the fuel lines for cracks.
