SOURCE: the primer bulb will not fill

the carb needs to be taken apart and cleaned out sometimes the screen gets blocked off from the fuel it gets crystalized or the pick up line from the tank is clogged im sure its the carb

SOURCE: replaced new gas line, new primer bulb, 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?

SOURCE: 32 cc Craftsman (Poulan) gas line replacement

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.

SOURCE: primer bulb doesn't pump gas

Does the primer bulb pop back out or does it come out slowly? Is the inline hose in good shape or has a crack where it can **** air in? Did you check to see if the diaphgram in the carb is pliable or is it paper-like and needs replaced. Or your carb could be stopped up.
Only one problem..I can't think of any weedtrimmer that has an inline fuel filter. They are usually located in the gas tank.

SOURCE: the primer bulb does not draw fuel thru carb

you need to buy a primer bulb kit and replace it cost about $8.00 and is easy to put in, the check valve is damaged.

I have a model 9400sx Eskimo ice auger with engine model#1e8xs.0464bc it's a 37.7 cc Emak made July 01 what is the proper oil to gas mixture for this unit? Thank you!

probably on the petrol cap as a 50:1
If not any where between 20:1 to 50:1 will run
only 2 stroke oil ( not engine oil)
watch the smoke from the exhaust and the correct mix is just visible smoke at rpms
smoky will be too much oil(20:1) and no smoke will be too little oil(60:1)

Auger won't start unless ether is sprayed into carb,then it will run until you stopauger . to re-startspray more ether

Is there a primer bulb that you need to prime? is there a choke that you can fully close proir to attempting to start.try holding full choke and throttle on initial cold engine start.if none of these help then a weak diaphram fuel pump may be the issue

Cant get my eskimo auger to start

stroke motors do not like ethnol mix fuels as the jets are not right. It could be a cause of it not starting. Wrong oil (engine oil instead of 2 stroke ) will also cause problems as the oil will not pass through the jets.

Jiffy ice auger won't start if cold.

Hello. I'm kind of "out on a limb " here but my older chain saws and my Jiffy auger's the same. I use the highest octain fuel I can get (at the pump) and I think it helps. These old motors were made to run on real gas.

Bit turns when you try to start

turn down the idle . if carb is set right it should idle and bit shouldn't turn until give it gas with the hand throttle. I have know problem with mine. I start it by myself all the time.
