Chainsaws have all position diaphram carbs, this is because it has to work in all positions, one side of the carb will have a pump diaphram, this is actuated by a positive and negative pulse from the piston riseing and falling ( there will either be an impulse pipe from the crankcase to the carb, or a hole in the induction block and gaskets to achieve this ) the other side of the carb will have a metering diaphram, a needle and jets, this takes the place of a float bowl on a normal carb, as the engine is cranked the pump diaphram pulses, this in turn draws fuel from the tank via the fuel hose and filter. So if there is no fuel in the line, either the filter in the tank is blocked, or the hose is trapped,split or leaking, or you have no impulse to the carb.

SOURCE: Poulan chainsaw gas line routing?

There ARE two holes in the tank. One samll and another larger. One is on the left side and the other is on the right. Look carefully and you'll find them. As far as connections of the fuel lines:

The line from the fuel filter in the tank goes directly through the small hole in the tank to the top nipple on the carb thus giving the carb a constant supply of fuel when running. The primer bulb is used only for "priming" and does not play a part in the fuel flow after that function. The bottom nipple on then carb then goes back to the nipple on the primer bulb which is clearly marked "Carb". The above connections are made with the smaller diameter tubing. From the primer bulb, marked "Tank", the larger diameter tubing is routed to the large hole in the tank. The tubing goes into the tank only 1/2 to 3/4 inch. As far as getting the tubing through the holes in the tank, cutting the tubing at a slant. But no matter what you do it is still a witch. Be patient, use some Vaseline and avoid the temptation to get out the drill and **** the hole to a larger size.

Try your friendly neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic. Take a piece of the old hose with you.

Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb, bulb returns excess to fuel tank.

SOURCE: Routings of fuel line to Poulan 14 inch chainsaw Model 2025

No drawings or pix, but will try for description--the line from the tank that has the fuel filter is the main fuel source which goes to the upper connection on the carburetor. The lower carburetor connection goes to the intake side of the primer bulb, and the outlet side of the primer goes back into the tank, which has no filter inside the tank. The main problem is determining the correct primer port to connect back to the carburetor. When everything is connected, try priming the carburetor. If fuel fills the bulb, you have everything connected correctly. If nothing happens, try switching the two primer port connections and try to pump fuel again. If still nothing, hook the main supply line from the carburetor over to one of the primer ports and try for fuel again--if still nothing, switch the main supply line to the other primer port and pump again. If still nothing, check for a plugged fuel filter in the tank. If the filter was plugged, then go through the previous procedure again. Make sure to replace the fuel lines with original rubber lines, not plastic. Hope this helps!

Why want my carbarator pull gas out of the tank, can not get gas in the fuel line


Possibly a hole in the fuel line, fatigued carb diaphragm, stuck float needle. Make and model of your equipment you're referring too?! Makes it less of a guessing game.

181 se chainsaw. runs for 30 sec then dies. new fuel new carb kit, completely cleaned, new plug


Check the fuel line going into the tank for holes or tears. When you get it to run for the 30 sec. it is running off the prime from the bulb. Once it is running it should be sucking gas through the fuel line to keep it running. A hole or tear in the fuel line will cause it to **** air and die out.

Sounds like you need to pull out the spark plug and put some fuel directly into the cylinder to get it fired up.

Will start but will not run in less gas is poured into carbarator


Not getting fuel, if it will only run by adding fuel. With it off, look down the carb and open the throttle, you should see a fuel spray inside. It sounds like fuel not getting to the carb. Probably fuel pump!

You need to disassemble the case to get to the fuel tank. Pull out the plug fitting and replace the internals with new factory grade parts.

Need diagram for fuel lines on craftsman chainsaw


There is two sizes of line. I see the large one goes to the large port on the primer button and then to the fuel tank. The small one goes from the primer button to the carb. The problem is there are two hose connections on the carb. I believe one is a vent, but I am not sure what one it is. I have a 36cc 2-cycle model 358.352161

42 inch Craftsman carburator not getting any gas. You can spray quick start and will will fire. Does gas from tank gravity feed to filter?


gas tank gravity feeds fuel to the carb. if you pull the fuel line from the carb, fuel should flow out of the tube. if it does not, then either the vent hole on the gas cap is plugged or there are contaminents at the bottom of the gas tank preventing fuel from flowing into the fuel line.
