Check where the fuel lines enter the tank... the lines must completely fill the two holes made for the lines to go in. If the fuel lines are too small in diameter, fuel will leak past them where they enter the tank.

SOURCE: Getting new gas lines in holes in gas tank

I had the same problem. I ended up cutting the fuel line off at a sharp angle. This allowed me to fit enough through to reach with a pair of skinny needle nose pliers. I would also like a diagram of the lines to make sure I hooked them up correctly.

A Poulan IPL for your saw “2375LE Gas Saw Type?” (LE is code for WildThing; if your saw is beyond serial -2 look at a saw without the LE; it makes little difference to the fuel system) can be found here:

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

  • Small hose (filter on bottom) long enough to reach all corners inside tank, to lower carburetor connection. Please leave the 2 carburetor connections long enough to reverse until the saw is running.
  • Upper carburetor connection, small hose to suction side of primer.
  • Pressure side of primer (large hose) to tank fitting.
The IPL is deceptive it appears the filtered hose connects to the primer; it does not.

Yes there is.If you can get the broken pieces out of the tank.there should be a filter on one of the broken lines.you will have too buy some gas line 3/16.take some wd-40 and spray the line.this makes it easier to slide through the hole in tank.then loop it around to gas cap hole and reinstall filter.then make sure filter is at bottom of tank and hook back to carb.

Looks like it's the fuel filter in the tank, the filter will be in the tank at the end of the line.

get a stiff wire, make a hook at the end and fish for the fuel line that has the fuel filter.

you will have two fuel lines in the tank one has a fuel filter, that's the one you want,

once you remove the fuel filter, submerge the fuel line in the gas, and primer the bulb

if the bulb gets full of fuel, theirs your problem, sometimes the filter can be cleaned

with an air compressor, but sometimes its so dirty that it,s better replaced to prevent

further problems. good luck!

H0w do I repair my McCullock 35cc Chain saw


The gas filter is going to be dangling inside the fuel tank on the end of the fuel pick-up line. Hook it with a short piece of wire and slip it to the edge of the fuel opening. Be careful as you can easily destroy the actual fuel line in the process. It will NOT stretch as far as you would like for access to the filter. The filter is connected to the fuel line with a plastic barb fitting that inserts inside the line. Remove and reinstall the new replacement.

The chain and bar are removed by first loosening the nuts on the side of the case. Next, look between the two nuts for a screwdriver adjustment....if not there, look from the front of the saw down alongside the inside of the guide bar and up against the case should be a screwdriver slot. Turn it COUNTER clockwise to loosen the chain to a drooping loop. Remove the two bar nuts and side case and the bar and chain will easily slip off.

16 inch poulan chainsaw got hot and started to smoke and now the recoil no longer works. I took the cover off and there is two springs that seem sprung. should I toss it and forget it or this something I...


how old is the polan 16 inch is it a solid body saw or does it have anti vibration handles, so your hands dont go numb after cutting for 15 minutes.reason i asked is: you can buy a brand new reconditioned homelite with anti vibration handle for 85.00&shiping.
at the very least,your polan needs the recoil starter fixed
and that does not address why the poulan got hot & started to smoke.
For the problems you described , at least $100.00 labor plus parts to fix at a chain saw shop
It might barely be worth it if you were a do it yourselfer and wanted to try to fix it.
if you dont want to be a diy chain saw mechanic, sell your polan for parts for $20.00 on ebay and buy a new homelite
16 inch 38 cc with anti vibration handle ,so you can cut for 6 hours straight, if need be. You get a reconditioned saw that is ready to go and a 90 day warranty. or buy the saw brand new for $110.00 and free shipping@ amazon.com

Replace fuel line in husqvarna 141 chain saw


The fuel line on the 141 is very small and wasn't really meant to be replaced for some reason, as it is a pinch fit. Buy the smallest fuel line you can, usually 1/8th OD inch fuel line. Remove the air-filter and the carburetor. You will need to drill out the
current hole a little bit, so go slowly. As soon as the new fuel line will fit _tightly_ insert the line. You will have to remove the hand-bar and the
anti-vibration bolts to separate the motor mount portion from the gas tank which is part of the hand grip.

Apply some gasoline proof gasket sealant to the space between the gap, else you will have a gas leak from the tank sooner or later.

Reassemble the grip and motor sections back together and let the sealant dry for a day or so. Put the carb and air filter back on and attach the fuel line to the carb and the other end to the fuel filter in the gas tank.

I HAVE TO REPLACE FUEL LINES ON A POULAN MODEL 2450 CHAIN SAW NOT SURE WHERE TO HOOK THE LINES TO AS THE OLD LINES WAS ROTTEN AND CAME OFF THE POSTS OR LOCATIONS WHERE THEY WERE HOOKED


Hi,

Sorry to hear of your predicament. It's upsetting but not that hard to fix.

You'll have to drain the gas out of the tank first and toss it if it isn't fresh. Remove the filler cap. Take the cover off the saw and possibly the air filter if it's in the way.
Turn the saw upside down and shake the fuel filter to the opening of the gas tank (it's inside the tank) and grab it with a needle nose pliers and pull it out. If the line was that bad, you'll want to replace the fuel filter also.
You'll need to get new fuel line, which is clear tubing. You'll need about 6-8 inches of tubing.
Attach the new line to the fuel filter and feed the line into the gas tank and through the hole in the bottom. Pull it all the through to the interior of the saw. Feed the line around to the small metal tube on the carburetor. Before you connect to the carb, cut the excess line off.
If your saw has a priming bulb, connect the line to the fuel entrance on the bulb.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Need to put a new gas line in a 38series gas chain saw what is the best way and do I need to crack the whole case in order to do so


Don't crack the case open! As it is very difficult to get a good seal after that. What I suggest is, take a thin stiff wire wrap around the end of the new fuel line and pull it through. Look at your fuel filter to see if it is not plugged up. I suggest just putting in a new one. The old one has probably been in there since saw was new. I hope this helps you. Best regards and good luck.
