Cheapest way is a new fuel tank from e-bay that has it all installed
you can remove the rubber grommet around the lines to get it out then get a new filter to push on the line BUT will it be cost effective against what can be obtained from e-bay

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.

Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly.

SOURCE: Poulan chainsaw primer bulb replacement

Hello Jay;
The primer listed for your saw and sold by Poulan does not include hoses (do an Internet search for the part number below, there are photos). Hoses are sold separately and are 2 different sizes. You can cap the carburetor to primer connection at the carburetor and your saw will run as all chainsaws did before the addition of the air purge system.

An example of a Poulan "2375LE Gas saw Type 2" 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.
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
See the "Engine Assembly" print; item 4; pn 530047213.
Small hose in the tank with a filter on the end (long enough to reach all corners as the saw is moved) the opposite end connects to the carburetor.

A second small hose connects between the second carburetor fitting and the suction side of the primer.
A large hose connects between the pressure side of the primer and fuel tank (return).
I suggest you replace ALL hoses. Do you change tires on at a time?

Plumb the system EXACTLY as the diagram shows. If it will not run you have the 2 connections on the carburetor reversed. It might make sense to leave them long enough to swap until everything is working.
A typical fuel system and a couple of suggestions can be found here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair

If your saw is not a Type 2 or an LE (code for Wild Thing) you can find the correct IPL here:
Poulan.com

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

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

The ful line actualy disloved and the problem is inside the carburtator there is a valve that lets fuel into the fuel bowl and also shuts it off when its full the floats control it so its always opening and closeing that is stuck closed from the melted fuel line you need to clean the entire carburator out the neddle valve may have a rubber tip at the seal point so take care not to damage it ware it makes the seal but its not hard to do anyone with some common sence and a little mechanical abilitly can do them selves

Need a diagram of fuel gas lines on a 131 poulan


Lots of research has shown a lack of diagrams on fuel line routing. Your carburetor has the purge/primer bulb on top of it. Just to help you understand how it works....the bulb uses a vacuum effect to pull fuel from the tank directly into the carburetor and the check valves in the plate under the bulb (known as the primer base assembly) push any air and old fuel inside the carb back into the fuel tank. On your model, the line inside the tank with the fuel filter on it will come out and go to the carburetor body BELOW the base assembly. The other line coming out of the tank (fuel return line) will go TO the nipple on the base assembly. The lines should be nice and soft and so should the bulb. They all have to be replaced periodically as alcohol, heat and age deteriorate them. Please post back if needed.

The smaller line is connected to the fuel filter in the tank and goes on the carb body opposite the end with the hole in the cover. A larger diameter line coming out of the tank is the fuel return line and has the little connector on it just inside the tank to hold it in place there
It goes on the carb body (if primer is on carb) by the bulb.
If there is an external bulb...the small line is the same...there would be a larger line going from the carb body (nearest the end with a hole in the cover) to the smaller nipple on the primer bulb. A third larger diameter line would be connected to the larger nipple on the primer bulb and running to the little nylon connector inside the tank. This is the fuel return line and the smaller diameter line is of course the fuel supply line.

there should be a filter on the long line,on a heavy little aluminium weight,which keeps it into the fuel when tipped over.the short one will probably be the return line.check the carbie,to see if there is a fuel return line.some chainsaws do have them,most weedeaters do.the long fuel line is quite long allowing the filter to flop about,always at the bottom of the tank,where the fuel is

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH

Poulan chainsaw gas line routing?


There ARE two holes in the tank. One samll and another larger. One is on the left side and the other is on the right. Look carefully and you'll find them. As far as connections of the fuel lines:

The line from the fuel filter in the tank goes directly through the small hole in the tank to the top nipple on the carb thus giving the carb a constant supply of fuel when running. The primer bulb is used only for "priming" and does not play a part in the fuel flow after that function. The bottom nipple on then carb then goes back to the nipple on the primer bulb which is clearly marked "Carb". The above connections are made with the smaller diameter tubing. From the primer bulb, marked "Tank", the larger diameter tubing is routed to the large hole in the tank. The tubing goes into the tank only 1/2 to 3/4 inch. As far as getting the tubing through the holes in the tank, cutting the tubing at a slant. But no matter what you do it is still a witch. Be patient, use some Vaseline and avoid the temptation to get out the drill and **** the hole to a larger size.

Reattaching fuel line to gas tank.


Get a new line the same size and length of the old one. Get the filter out of the tank. If it is as I think, it has a barbed end that goes into the outlet hole. Take your new line, fit it onto the filter end and make sure it is all the way on. Take the other end of the line and cut a taper on the end. Thread the end through the tank, into the outlet hole and aissist it so your filter sticks through the tank hole. There was a ring on the outside of the tank, on the line. Take that ring and run the ring over the end of the tube up to the filter bottom. Make sure it goes all the way up to the bottom, and tight.Square off the end and slip it onto the carb...Good luck...Lee

How do I install fuel lines on a poulan chain saw model 1950?From carburator to primer,from primer to fuel tank,two connections on each.


The smaller line comes from the fuel filter in the tank to the nipple on the side of the carb with the cover w/ 1large screw in the center, the other small line goes from the other nipple on the carb to the primer bulb, the larger line goes from the other nipple on the primer bulb back to the tank, and only gets pushed in about 1/2-3/4" into the tank. Hope this helps.

Replacing a fuel line for a Poulan 2175 type 2 chainsaw


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.
