Change the fuel suction hose and filter


By using a piece of wire with a hook on one end slightly bigger than the diameter of the fuel line, fish or hook the filter & fuel line out of the tank through the filler hole. then remove the filter from the end of the fuel line. Next let the fuel line fall back into the tank then pull the fuel line out of the tank from the outside. Then to replace it with a new line. It is quite a tight fit in the tank & can be a difficult to replace. This can be made a little easier if you cut the end of hose at a sharp angle then put it in the hole. If it is too tight to slide through the hole you may need to use a pair of long nose or bent pliers to pull it from the inside,pull it out the filler hole & cut the end off square then replace the filter on the end of the hose & let it slide back into the tank. It is probable a good idea to replace the return fuel line at the same time if it hose one fitted.

Where is the fue pump located on an 97 buick lesaber


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. If you have a major leak, there are a few things it could be. The filler tube you put gas into during a fill-up goes directly to the fuel tank. The filler tube may have a hole in it; If your tube is rubber, the clamp at the fuel tank may need replaced; you may have a fuel line leaking near the fuel tank, The fuel tank may have a hole in it. A fuel leak is a hazardous situation, so take extra precautions to be safe and have it repaired asap.

My Weed Eater FL25 has rotted fuel lines. One is attached to the primer. Is the other the main? Is there a proper way to replace them? Diagram?


The brass fitting on the carb closest to the primer/purge bulb has a line on it that takes old fuel/air inside the carb and sends it TO the fuel tank. So it is routed straight to the tank. The lower brass fitting on the carb (side with vent hole in cover) has a line that goes directly to the fuel tank and has the in-tank fuel filter on it's end. To insert the main one that gets the filter on its end into the fuel tank, slice a notch out of the end of it so you can squeeze it into the hole in the tank. You can then twist and push it until enough of it goes in to grasp ahold of it with long tweezers or needle-nose pliars. Start off with about 1 foot of Tygon fuel line so you can do this. After you get ahold of it, pull it up thru the fill hole and attatch the filter. Then let it lay it the tank so it will move side to side on the bottom. With the extra line coming out of the tank (it seals the hole) see how much you need to reach the intake fitting on the carb (side with vent hole in cover). Cut it off and attatch it . The other line by the bulb only needs to enter the fuel tank about 1/2 inch or so and it also will seal the hole it goes through. You can notch it as well to help get it started into the fuel tank. This line will be short. I recommend you use NEW Tygon fuel line. I also recommend you get a new primer/purge bulb when you replace the fuel lines. It will deteriorate very soon, ask me how I know! They might have a fuel line kit with the filter, lines and bulb for your machine at Home Depot. Ebay has kits I know. Or you can go to the small engine repair shop and get exactly what you need.

I have a PP131 string trimmer. I was replacing the primer bulb and the fuel lines broke. Does the Fuel Pick-up just lay down in the fuel tank or stands up in the hole in tank and does the line just fit...


The fuel pickup should lie in the bottom of the tank. It is weighted so that it will fall to the bottom of the tank when you turn the trimmer back and forth. The line should fit snugly through the hole in the tank so fuel does not spill out when the trimmer is turned up on its side.

I HAVE A RYOBI VAC/BLOWER MODEL RGBV3100 THE FUEL LINES NEED REPLACING THEY ROTTED OFF NEED TO KNOW WHICH WAY TO ROUTE FROM PRIMER BUTTON TO CARB


The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so

Fuel line in tank broke off need to know if fuel tank can be taken apart to replace hose and if so how


Hi,

No the fuel tank is part of the case. The fuel line needs to be pushed through the holes. The supply line goes through the big hole on the left. And the return line goes through the small hole on the right hand side.

It is tricky getting the lines through these holes, It helps to use a small pick or punch to push with, then I use a hemostat to reach inside and pull the lines in. Use bulk line and dont cut it until you are happy with the length. The supply line ( the one with the filter) should extend outside the fuel opening. The return line just need to enter the tank about an inch or two.

Hope this helps

Replacing fuel lines on ryobi weed eater,need


This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

Need to replace fuel line that goes into gas tank


You have to pull the fuel line through the hole in the tank because the hole is a little smaller than the fuel line, otherwise it would leak. Use a thin piece of wire, I use a tag wire,cut the fuel line at an angle on the end, stick a hole in it then stick the wire through hole in the tank and out the cap hole. Stick the wire through the line and twist it around itself and pull the line through.
