    I have the same problem. I bought the tubing from Home Depot and tried to replace it myself, however it looks like the tubing has to route through a hole in the tank and then attach to a weight in the bottom. I think I may have done this right but not sure, it fires up and runs but i'm afraid i may have attached the weight to the wrong part? I t would be nice to see what it should look like inside the tank.

Sorry about the delay.
Problem solved, I hooked up the lines (very important to get a drill the size of your new gas line, it aids in sealing the tank, thus providing a good seal for the prime).
The thing in the bottom of the tank, attached to the line is a filter. It is available at any small engine shop).
Once I hooked up the lines and hit the primer ball a few times you can see the fuel moving, you will know, because you will see which way it flows through the lines. The other line is just a return line into the tank.
It is the same on generally any 2 cycle blower or weedwacker motor.

Both lines from carb to gas tank rotted off inside of gas tank

These lines need to be replaced. If you can do it yourself go to shop and buy about 18 inches of line, also new filter. It has been my experience that you will probably end up having to go through the carb.

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).

line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb

Is it possible to replace a primer bulb on a homelite blower?

The bulb repair kit can be purchased a home depot or lowes, or whatever is close to your home. These can be replaced fairly easy. It is usually prongs on the backside that hold the bulb in. After pressing these the bulb will come out of the housing and disconnect the tubing from the bulb. It a good idea to replace tubing when doing this, the tubing is rotted or dried out and eventually cracks. Keep in mind where the tubing goes. One will feed from the gas tank and the other will feed the carb.

Fuel lines rotted, unsure of routing new ones

Bottom of the tank one is an overflow, 2 in the top are connected to the bulb
. The bulb pumps gas from the gas tank to the bowl of the carb then back to the fueltank in a loop to prime things up, prime too much and the overflow comes out the bottom tube.

Fuel line connection

Fuel filter to bottom of carb. The suction port of primer to the top of carb outlet line to other port to tank.
To tell which port is outlet put your finger on one port and push bulb if the bulb collapses and doesn't return then that is the inlet (suction) side.
Good luck

31cc ryobi weedeater wont start

I've had similar trouble. I removed the plastic cover to expose the fuel lines. I've had to replace all of them as each one had dry rotted, split or had holes. There are four runs of clear plastic fuel line. Check all your lines and then check for any of it being plugged up to the carberator. The primer bulb should develop some pressure when all is good.

The line from carb goes to bulb inlet, the bulb outlet goes to tank. Line with filter goes to carb inlet.

Toro mower with clogged fuel line

That doesn't sound like a clogged fuel line, it sounds like your carb either needs a cleaning or a rebuild. If your fuel line was clogged than you wouldn't be getting fuel to the carb and you wouldn't be able to prime it. First check the smell of your fuel, if it smells stale then you sould empty it out and put fresh fuel in.Next take the air filter housing off unless the carb is exposed enough to get to easily. If you clamp off your fuel line (unless you have a shut off) so no fuel passes to the carb., wipe down or with an air hose blow off the bowl of the carb so there is no debris, pull the screw out of the bottom of the car., be sure to use a clean container to catch the fuel and look for any debris in the fuel. You can also take the bowl off and see what the inside of the bottom of the bowl looks like. Your looking for any debris or gelling of the fuel inside of the carb. if anything is noticed then the carb. is going to need atleast a cleaning. If a cleaning doesn't work then you may need a rebuild kit. Any qeustions on any of this please feel free to ask me.
