Pull the lines off do only one at a time one should stick in the tank 1/4 inch which is your return the second one is your pick up which has a filter in the tank attached to it take a piece of stiff wire or a clothes hanger and bend a tight hook on the end just big enough for the fuel line to fit in it fish the wire in the tank and try to hook the fuel line then pull it out of the tank to take the filter off it might take a few tries but you will get it after that pull the line out from the top not the filter side take the new line and feed it through if you cut a 45 degree angle at the end of the line it makes it easier to feed once you get it in all the way use your piece of wire to hook it through the filler and pull it out then attach your fuel filter then shove it back in the tank like i said it may take you a few times but you will get hope this helps

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank


I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can 'fall' into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

Why does my craftsman bushwacker hedge trimmers not go fast when I have it full throttle?


if engines stumbling when at full throttle , ck to see that your getting full fuel flow ( lots of bubbles in primer bulb are a sure sign of not a good flow) , locate the fuel filter inside fuel tank , ck it for a dark color ? if so replace it , also try adding some normal car fuel system cleaner to your fuel next time u run it for a few minutes , this helps to loosen stuck deposits inside the carb

Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines... or better yet... what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I...


Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32" (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16" (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64" (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don't offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand...it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.

Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.

Good luck.

My fuel lines are coming apart and I need to install new ones.


go to sears direct, enter your model number and get a schematic of your tool. you can also order factory parts at that site. Just replace them just the way they are now and be sure to tighten down the hose clamps well, if they come with hose clamps. some do not and rely only upon friction fit. Joe

Craftsman Hedge Trimmer model 358.796353 that won't operate


The problem you are experiencing is the coil. I had the same problem and confronted a freind that works on small engines. I asked him if the coil could be the problem and he gave me one to try out of another trimmer he had for parts. It is running well. The problem I now have is the blade tang that moves it back and forth broke. Now I'm trying to locate one of them.
