There should be something going into the tank, a plastic elbow or connector, that will connect the fuel line from the carb to the pick up in the tank. Generally what I do is remove what ever goes into the tank and get a piece of fuel line slightly bigger than the hole and insert the fuel line directly from the carb into the tank. You have to be sure the hose is really tight so to create an air tight seal. Pull the new hose out of the tank through the fuel fill and insert the new fuel filter, push the hose back in making sure it is on the bottom of the tank but has room to move around

SOURCE: I need to know the procedure for replacing the fuel line

The procedure is logic and common sense buoyed up with as much information as you can obtain.

This is a typical fuel system and a tip or two:

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations. (About 30 XL-12s; I defer to you)
Homelite/ (authorized parts supplier) - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches. Good Luck. HTH

SOURCE: Homelite chain saw fuel system

The line at the back of the tank gets the filter (check it for plugging) and the one nearest the cap doesn't use a filter (it is the return line from the primer bulb). The filtered line goes directly to the carburetor inlet port and the outlet port allows fuel to be pulled through the carburetor and out to the primer port. Check and replace any fuel lines that are in poor condition. If the engine has been running with the intake filter missing, the interior of the carburetor may be full of debris. Remove, dismantle, and clean the carburetor interior. Go to: for an excellent 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Hope this helps!

On a homelite model 26 bv blower Does the gas tank filter connect to anything

The filter fits on the end of the fuel pickup line inside the gas tank. If you see the filter just rolling around in the tank it probably has hardened or damaged fuel lines. Size them up and get replacement lines online or at your local outdoor equipment retailer.

I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model

The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

I have a Homelite leaf blower that will start and run for a half tank og gas. However when the tank is half empty it stalls out and will not start. If I stop it fill the tank let it sit it will start

Sounds to me as though the fuel line that supplies the carburetor has been pulled out so that it is above the fuel when tank is 1/2 empty, or there is a crack/break in the fuel line inside the tank. Not a hard job to replace the fuel line, but takes patience. If your machine has 2 lines, only take 1 off at a time to avoid confusion as to which one goes where on the carburetor.

The smaller line that has the fuel filer on it in the tank goes to the stem on the lower part. The larger line that just terminates shortly inside tank goes to the stem on the top of the carb with the bulb.

My homelite leaf blower UT # UT08023B is running badly all of a sudden. when i pull the trigger to get it to full speed, it acts like it doesn't want to get to full speed only about half speed and it seems...

Its a fuel delivery problem. Its running lean.
Check the fuel line in the tank to see if the filter fell off. If the filter is loose in the tank than the best way to repair is to replace the fuel line. Also the diaghrams in the carb are dry or the screen is clogged. Lastly, if the fuel lines are not rotted and the screen in the carb is clear and everything is in proper working order then you can adjust the carb ( if it has adjustments). Start by turning the low speed needle out ( counterclockwise) 1/2 turn.

How to position the two little plastic hoses going from carburetor to fuel tank.for my homelite leaf blower and Vac, i need a caburator view

This is much easier than you think; the carburetor has two ports, one supply one return, the return port is the top port which allows excess fuel to be returned to the fuel tank when pressing the primer bulb. The bottom port is the intake that supplies fuel to the carburetor to be mixed with air and pushed into the cylinder for the combustion cycle. Both lines connect to the tank, the line with a cylindrical looking object is the supply line, that object is the fuel filter, so it would be connected to the bottom port of the carburetor. I hope that helps.

How do I replace the fuel filter and the two fuel hoses on my Homelite leaf blower? The fuel filter is inside the fuel tank.

Take your Model number of your machine and the model, type, and code of your motor to your local small engine repair shop and have them get you your replacement filter and also pick up new gas line. When you replace your fuel lines do one at a time. All you have to do is pull a fuel line off, cut new line to length and re install. As to the filter in the tank, I usually take a coat hanger and fish it up to the top and then use needle nose pliers to grip it. Then just pull off the old filter and install new one.

good luck
