    This solution was the same as I figured out after I posted the request. The only variation is that I oiled the tubing and turned and pushed it in until it could be reached with pliers. Thanks for your assistance

    My gas lines are crumbling like yours and I do not know where the large line attached to the primer bulb and carb and where the small line hooks in to the primer bulb and carb. Did you ever find a fuel lineand /or engine diagram anywhere?

I had the same problem. I ended up cutting the fuel line off at a sharp angle. This allowed me to fit enough through to reach with a pair of skinny needle nose pliers. I would also like a diagram of the lines to make sure I hooked them up correctly.

How do i route the fuel lines to the carburator ?


Depending on which carb you have it should be the fuel line closest to the bottom on the right side of the carb that goes to the small side of the primer bulb. The long side of the primer bulb will go to the fuel tank as the return line.

This is a common problem. The fuel lines can become brittle and fracture, or sometimes they swell and will not stay on their connections.

The tube that connects between the carburetor and motor is likely used to pulse the fuel pump that is internal to the carburetor.

The primer pulls the fuel through the carburetor drawing the air out. As the primer is stroked first air than fuel is pumped out of the carburetor. The output of the primer returns to the fuel tank. That fuel line appears to have failed or become disconnected in your craftsman. Either the hose has broken at or near the fuel tank, or has pulled out of the tank. There is a small hole in the tank for many machines. The hole is smaller(providing a seal) than the tube diameter requiring a minor force to squeeze the tube back in place.

Look for the fuel feed tube that also connects from the fuel tank to the carberator. Any loose connections will allow air into the carberator and it will not beable to run.

Important is that the fuel feed tube can not be switched with the return tube from the primer. Connected inside the tank is a fuel filter that protects the carberator from contamination.

Hope this helps?

I just cleaned the carberator and new sparkplug it sounds like it not getting fuel when i put alittle gas in the carberator it starts and obviously stops? on my craftmen weedeater


if it is an older one, the gas lines like to rot away. you can usually tell by looking down inside the gas tank. you can also check to see if the primer is moving the fuel through the lines as you prime it

How do I replace the primer bulb on my lawnboy silver series self propelled mower? I purchased one but cannot seem to figure out how to replace it.


You must remove the engine cover (three torx screws) then you can pull the line off the plastic bulb disk and remove it from the cover by pushing the side clips.
Put silicone on the bulb disk and force the bulb on to the disk. I had to use a vice to hold the disk, it is a very tight fit. When you get the bulb on the disk, reinstall it in the engine cover and reattach the hoses. The gas tank hose will probably need to be pushed on to the carberator and the gas tank also. This is hard work but is the only way you can instal the bulb.

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.

Primer pump rotten need replacement show parts page


The hoses run through a hole into the gas tank, they are fitted with a filter inside the tank. Drain the tank, and manipulate the hose end to where you can grab it throught he filler hole, Remove the filter, run new gas lines into the tank and through the filler hole to replace the filter, reattach to the carburator. The primer bulb should have 4 small screws attaching it to the carburator. Remove the screws, place in new primer bulb, and you should be back to trimming asap.

Put in new carb kit, starts but dies after a few seconds


If you removed the fuel lines from the primer bulb you may have reversed the lines. On two stroke engines the primer pulls gas through the carb it does not push gas into the carb. On the back of the primer bulb there are two hose barbs, one says in (in very small letters) this side goes to the carburetor and the other goes to your gas tank (it is a return line) This line is about a third to a half way up the side of your gas tank, not at the bottom where the fuel line is.

Yes, you are right. The larger line goes to the primer bulb and only goes into the tank about an inch. The coupling just keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. The smaller line goes to the carb. This line must rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank with the filter attached to the end.

Replaced new gas line, new primer bulb, new gasoline. need to find out if gas line routing is correct / trimmer will start, but very hard to start, clean air filter. carb never been adjusted since new.


Line from tank with the filter on it is the supply line and goes to the carb inlet fitting. This is typically on the "bottom" of the carb (with the tank being up) and will usually have a fitting with barbs or a bulge on it to ensure a tight fit. The other fitting on the carb is the return line and is usually a straight tube fitting with no barbs. That line goes the suction side of the primer bulb. The third line goes from the outlet of the primer bulb to the return barb fitting in the bottom of the tank. Fittings have to be removed from tank to properly install the new hoses on them. Remove retainer ring on outide of tank and push fittings into tank, then shake out of the fill opening. More details on replacing hoses are listed in another post about Repairing Ryobi trimmer.

Have you checked the spark plug?
