    i think it was the small teeny weeny screen (fuel filter) that is part of the carburetor body. i did not even know it was there. i thought the only fuel filter was in the gas tank. i studied a parts breakdown and discovered it. i think we are going again.



    thanks.

Hello

From your Description and Depending on the OEM (Zama or Walbro) of the Carburetor it Sounds like a Bad Fuel Filter or the Primer Check Valve has Stuck and the Carburetor Requires Soaking and Cleaning.
>>You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Mower at this Site Addy, http://www.poulanpro.com/poulanpro/indexAction.do?id=default and Select Order Parts and Accessories. On this Page Select Illustrated Parts List from the Menu on the Left. Now Select the Manufacturer (Poulan/Weed Eater) and Enter the Model Numbers in the Boxes at the Lower Left of the Page.
I Require the OEM (Walbro, Zama, ect) and the Model Numbers Off the Carburetor. With these I can Locate a Breakdown of the Carburetor and Better Assist you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

If it's the one that comes 'out' of the primer bulb it is the return line that goes in the fuel tank.

Repair weed eater


If you see gas in the primer bulb it is pulling in gas to the bulb. If not check for cracks in the bulb assembly and check to see if the fuel lines are not off their fittings and not cracked.

A relative has a weed eater featherlite 20c and thr primer bulb doesnt keep gas in it,is it supposed to?and if so what is the cause?And it want stay running unless u keep it running wide open.Why is that?


The machine is having a fuel delivery issue The purge/primer bulb PULLS fuel from the fuel tank, thru the carb and then to itself it pull any air/old fuel in the carb...and the PUSHES this mixture back to the fuel tank. There are check valves in carbs that have the bulb on them..Deteriorated fuel lines clog a screen in the carb and the ethanol in the gas works to deteriorate the fuel pump and metering diaghram in these carbs...You have to start at the tank with the fuel filter and go from there.
I'd say from the running symptons that a diaghram kit is needed for the carb...they are cheap and easily installed.

Replaced gas tank and primer bulb on my Poulan Leafblower FL1500 and it appears I'm not getting gas into the carb. Any ideas as to what my be the cause?


I assume the new tank came with new fuel lines and filter in it.
First be sure you have all the lines hooked up correctly. There should be a main line from the tank ( has the fuel line on the end of it in the tank) to the fuel pump side of the carb. Then there should be a line leaving the metering side of the carb to the primer bulb then from the primer bulb returning to the tank. When you press the primer bulb you should see it **** the fuel into the carb then from the carb into the primer bulb then back into the tank.
If the fuel lines are all hooked up correctly then you should rebuild the carb.
