Open Question

I have a McCullough Mac 3216 chain saw. The fuel lines to the primer bulb are completely disintegrated. I have purchased a replacement kit for the primer & lines, but don't know which line attaches to which barb on the primer. Anyone have the routing? Thanks.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs will help with reassembly. HTH

SOURCE: I'm trying to replace the fuel lines on the primer

The primer is just a small pump--it is supposed to draw fresh fuel through the carburetor and expel it back into the tank. There are also just two lines on the carburetor--the upper one should go straight to the fuel tank and filter, the other goes to the intake side of the pump. Just pick a port of the primer (remove the other line for the moment), and try to pump fuel into the bulb (make sure the bulb is not decayed as well)--it should fill with fuel if you have the correct connection--if not, just place the line from the carburetor on the other primer port and try to pump again. If still no fuel, something is plugged in the carburetor or the fuel filter. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a 3516 chain saw mod22-600035-18 Mcculloch the fuel lines

Okay I figured it out finally. One line from fuel tank with filter goes to bottom connection on carb, or right hand side furthest away from start er cord. The line on the other side of carberator goes to short nipple on primer bulb. then the center nipple on bulb goes to return line into tank, not good at typeing hope this helps took me 2 hours of trial and error to get it to run.

Poulan chain saw model #2025 - fuel lines dry rotted and disintegrated. There are 3 fuel lines: l from gas tank and 2 from primer button but only 2 fuel ports on the carb. What goes where and how?


You should have 2 to the tank, the one with filter coming from tank goes to nipple on right side of carb, the nipple on left side by primer bulb goes to primer bulb and other from primer bulb back to tank as return line, how it should work is when you push primer bulb it pulls fuel from tank through carb and back to tank on return line so watch in tank orleave one line out that you think is return line and see if gas comes out when you prime, but remember it goes through the carb first before it goes back to tank, had a pic but too big to put on site sorry, 2StrokeJim

My chain saw 14" homelite


primers pull fuel from the carb and dumps it back into the tank, so if the bulb will not prime the chances are the fuel filter in the tank is blocked, pull the fuel hose through the filer hole and replace the filter on the end.

How to run the fuel hoses for the MAC 3516. Most of the hoses have fallen apart so retracing the hoses is problematic


A McCulloch Mac 3516 model 21-600032-83 IPL example follows (may not be your saw):
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.

If the above is not your saw, yours can be located here:

A typical fuel system and a couple of tips follow:

If properly plumbed your saw will run with carb to primer hose capped off.

Chain saw, there is a line from primer to the carb, then what? I cant tell if coming out of the carb it goes back to primer or in the fuel tank? Then should there be a line from fuel tank to the primer?


Similar to this, typical fuel system.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.

Fuel lines have rotted off. need to replace then


Mr Tittle;
It isn't good but it's all there is.
What little fuel system system detail there is can be found here:

If it is a 2375 WildThing find 2375LE Gas Saw Type ?. The last digit of your serial number should be a -1 or -2, the type.

  • The filtered hose from the fuel tank connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer bulb (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as the bulb reinflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns any excess fuel to the tank as it is depressed.

My name is Dennis and I'll try to be of assistance.
1) There is a primer line kit that is of smaller diameter and it goes from the primer bulb to the tank and terminates at the fuel pick-up assembly. There is also another smaller diameter line that goes from the primer bulb to the carburetor.
2) There is also a fuel line kit that is of larger line diameter that goes from the carburetor to the fuel tank.
That's a total of three lines Tank to bulb and bulb to carburetor two lines four places to connect. and tank to carburetor that is the third line and the remaining places to connect the second place at the tank and tha last at the carburetor.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.
Thank you
Dennis
