Loose Fuel Line

The fuel line in my chain saw gas tank is disconnected and laying loose in the bottom. I do not have a manual, and do not know how to remove the tank and reconnect the fuel line.

    identical problem, i.e., gas filter with about 5" of tubing just by itself in the gas tank; not connected to anything. Don't see a way to connect it back up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How do you hook up the fuel filter line inside the tank on a cs400


If you go online and search for the drawings for that saw you will see that the fuel pipe enters the tank at the top through a grommet. You will have to pop out this and then pass the pipe through this after passing it up through the hole from inside, long nosed pliers or tweezers will assist. Once you have that done stuff the grommet back into the hole and don't pUll it out again!!!!!!!!

After replacing the fuel lines on a mac3200 gas is running out of the bottom of the saw, after the tank emptys the fuel quits leaking. the saw runs great though


This is usually because you used a fuel line that is too small to seal the holes they pass through in the fuel tank. When they pass through the holes in the tank they should be very tight so gas cannot leak past the lines.

Need to know how to re-connect primer bulb on McCulloch Model # B00032-32, Ser # 11-100258 (McCulloch Gas Powered Chain Saw)


Take the line off of the primer that goes to the tank and leave loose for a moment. The other line to the primer comes from the carburetor and it should be be tried on either port on the primer until it will pull fuel into itself when pumped. If neither port works, the primer pump may be faulty, the carburetor is plugged internally, or the fuel line from the tank to the carburetor is decayed or the fuel filter is plugged. When the primer pulls fuel into itself, reconnect the return line that goes back to the tank. Hope this helps!

Need to replace all gas lines


  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

Husqvarna 350 chain saw will only start if I manually put gas in the carb. and then it dies! I've clean the carb twice! The piston ring is within specs and the muffler is not dirty.


Typical fuel system:

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly. It can also be an air leak, inspect for a loose or defective carburetor manifold or loose carburetor. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor are dirty or have failed. HTH

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH
