    I recently replaced the fuel line to the carburetor. It goes through the gas tank wall and is a bear, but can be reached (just barely) through the gas tank filler opening. I also need to replace the line from the tank to the primer bulb and I do not see a way to do this procedure unless this line slips on a fitting outside the gas tank (?), since where it comes out inside the tank is visible but not reachable (unless the tank can be opened).

    fuel line to primer

    Similarly ned to repalce fuel line that goes between carb and fuel filter pickup. I can see the routing, but the hose appears to be a very tight fit through the hole in top of fuel tank.



    My question is, is there any particular proceedures or tricks to getting a new line in through this small fuel tank opening?



    Thanks.

Take top cover off(3 screws). Take off the 2 nuts holding the carb on. Pull carb part way out to access the hoses. Remove the 3 old hoses after making a diagram of where they connect. Buy new hoses. Cut one end of the small hose on a bevel, pierce both sides 1/8 th inch from the end with a needle. Thread a thin wire through both holes. Thread both wire ends into the gas tank. Use a hemostat or long needle nose plyers to pull the wires and then hose down into the tank. Attach the weighted fuel filter. The other end of this smaller diameter fuel line goes on the upper nipple on the carb. Take the side cover off (4 screws) to access the primer bulb. Take 2 screws out to remove the bulb which has 2 nipples. The longer nipple connects to the larger diameter hose which goes to the fuel tank. The larger diameter tube has a coupler on the end which is inside the gas tank. It took me an hour to change all 3 hoses.

The fuel line from the tank filter goes to the carby and the other tank one goes to the "out" on the primer bulb. the other one on the bulb goes to the carby.

Now If the primer isnt marked there is a long and short nipple, and I cant rememer which is which...If you press the the prime rwith the hoses off you can find which one is sucking(in) and the one that blows (out).
The "in" on the caby (tank filter hose) is usualy the pipe that is in the aprox middle position, out (return, primer) is usualy ont outer position.....

the primer basicaly pulls air and fuel out of the carby and back in to the tank, not pushing it into the carby like most ppl think.
if it wont prime swap the hoses around on the carby and try....if that still dont work the caby diaphram might be US.

I also might add...the hose from the primer bulb to the tank is bigger than the hose from the primer bulb to the carb. No way can you put them on backwards. If this helps.

I had a hard time with the coupler on the end which is inside the gas tank. I ran a string in the opening and fished out throught the gas cap opening. Then I put through the coupler and tied a knot. That allow me to pull in position inside the tank. I threaded the string through the large tube an tried to push in the hole. After I finally got the tube in the hole I pulled the coupler into the tube inside the tank. I never could get the coupler back in the hole. Just got it to start.

What is the air gap between ignition coil and fly wheel on a poulan pro pp4218 avx?


For practical application you can just use a new business card or 3x5 recipe card. You don't want to use same card too many times though because thickens of card will change with use, and exposure to liquids. I don't remember right off hand the exact specs but I do know we have used this method for years.

My s579 bobcat skid steer loader is showing the code M0414(engine oil pressure extremely low) but I checked the oil level and its ok.any idea what could be happening


Connect mechanical oil pressure gauge to check real oil pressure. If OK, replace old pressure sender unit. If actually low, are there leaks? Engine may need bearings replaced, or could be incorrect oil or oil diluted by excessive fuel/leaky injectors.

am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)

Hello, I'm not very familiar w/ your model but it could be a
timing problem, the fuel is not being injected at the right time
to fire. On a older J.D.such as the 820 ect. would not inject at the right time, there is a place on the injector pump that corrects it, however, I would call a ford tractor dealer, or go online to www.tractornet.com
and list your problem. There are many people on this site that can and will help you. Good luck.

L E D christmas lights stay on when shut off.


No it's not. Your LED Christmas lights are okay. Your surge protector is fine too although the switch on your protector is an SPST type - it is connected to one line of your AC outlet. When turned off, the line with the switch is physically cut, but the other line is still alive. Some LED circuits and TFL lights blink even when the switch is turned off, probably because one line of the AC power is still (a)live. If this worries you, just unplug the LED lights from the protector.
