Take top cover off(3 screws). Take off the 2 nuts holding the carb on. Pull carb part way out to access the hoses. Remove the 3 old hoses after making a diagram of where they connect. Buy new hoses. Cut one end of the small hose on a bevel, pierce both sides 1/8 th inch from the end with a needle. Thread a thin wire through both holes. Thread both wire ends into the gas tank. Use a hemostat or long needle nose plyers to pull the wires and then hose down into the tank. Attach the weighted fuel filter. The other end of this smaller diameter fuel line goes on the upper nipple on the carb. Take the side cover off (4 screws) to access the primer bulb. Take 2 screws out to remove the bulb which has 2 nipples. The longer nipple connects to the larger diameter hose which goes to the fuel tank. The larger diameter tube has a coupler on the end which is inside the gas tank. It took me an hour to change all 3 hoses.

Jimmy there are no Poulan drawings with fuel system detail worth the ink it takes to print them, but that is all there is.
Fuel Line Replacement by SmallEng.com
Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb (once compressed bulb draws fuel as it returns to normal) , bulb (as it is compressed) returns displaced to fuel tank. HTH

Testimonial: "thank you very much for the information that you sent me. i spent two hours on a dial up modem trying to find the part and 20 seconds to read your rep"
The line at the rear of the fuel tank with the fuel filter is the main feed line to the carburetor and connects to the upper nipple. The lower nipple on the carburetor goes to one of the primer ports, and the other primer port goes back to the tank, which has no filter on the tank end. On the primer port, it is cut and try--remove the tank return connection and leave loose. Place the main fuel line on to one of the primer ports and try to pump fuel into it with several pumps.Make sure the filter in the tank is not plugged. If nothing, shift the line to the other port of the primer and try pumping again. When successful, remove the main fuel line and return it to the upper carburetor port. Run a new line from the lower carburetor port to the active primer port and try to pump fuel again. If it won't pump fuel, reverse the two connections at the carburetor and try to pump again. If still nothing, there is trouble within the carburetor which should be cleaned with spray carburetor cleaner and maybe re-kitted. When you can finally pump fuel through the carburetor, then attach the tank return line to the open port on the primer bulb. Hope fully, the engine should run at this point. Hope this helps!
