I have the same problem with my ut08580. When inspecting the carb, I noticed the diapham was torn. I cut a small amount off the corner of the diaphram and set it in the spot of the tear and put it back together. It worked for now, but I would like to order a new diaphram does anyone know how. I've been searching different parts sites for 3 hrs with no luck. I hope I don't have to buy a new carb.

Check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

I can't get it to start. Don't think the gas is moving when I pump it to start it. When I push on the bulb, it doesn't appear to pick up fuel.


Is the primer bulb filling with fuel.? If not then you either have a hole in the primer bulb or a hole in the fuel line, you mat also have a blocked primer bulb base.

Primer bulb will not prime


Sounds like it could be a number of faults.
1. Crack in the primer bubble its self, not allowing the creation of pressure or vaccum.
2. The plastic primer base has a valve in it. That could either be blocked or damaged.
3. Blocked up fuel line (not very likely)
4. Hole in the fuel line which is sllowing it to suck air up and not fuel.
I\'d be putting my money on 1 or 2.

Replaced gas tank and primer bulb on my Poulan Leafblower FL1500 and it appears I'm not getting gas into the carb. Any ideas as to what my be the cause?


I assume the new tank came with new fuel lines and filter in it.
First be sure you have all the lines hooked up correctly. There should be a main line from the tank ( has the fuel line on the end of it in the tank) to the fuel pump side of the carb. Then there should be a line leaving the metering side of the carb to the primer bulb then from the primer bulb returning to the tank. When you press the primer bulb you should see it **** the fuel into the carb then from the carb into the primer bulb then back into the tank.
If the fuel lines are all hooked up correctly then you should rebuild the carb.

There is a connector or something missing from the fuel overflow line from the carburetor back to the fuel tank


There is no such thing as a fuel overflow line.
If the unit has a primer bulb then there will be 2 lines in the tank ( 1 is a main fuel line distinguishable by the length of line that extends into the tank with a fuel filter on the end of it, the other is a return line from the primer bulb that terminates just inside the tank usually with a male to male conector.) The main fuel line will go to the carb and another line from the carb will go to the primer bulb. If any of these lines are discolered, fragile or broken then they should be replaced. Generally the smaller diameter line is the main fuel delivery line and the larger diameter line is the primer system.

The bulb primer is not sucking gas into it's chamber in order to prime start the blower


If you are not getting any fuel it should be either the filter plugged or the primer bulb leaking air. It could also be the fuel line. Give all of them a good look. ...Lee

Lost Manual need for repairs


What does your carburetor look like? Does it have a primer bulb? If so, look in the fuel tank and find the uptake filter, it's a cylindrical looking object connected to a fuel line inside the tank. Trace that line (an easy way I did this was to blow into the fuel lines myself and watch the cylinder, the line that makes it bubble out gas when blowing is the supply line) BE CAREFUL if you do this, you do not want to inadvertantly swallow gas!
Anyways, the line connected to the cylinder is the intake, the other is a return line and needs to be connected to the primer bulb port...from there it's gravy! Hope that helps you!
