Problem is that I do not know where the fuel lines are conected
But my problem is that I do not know where each hose is attach to fuel filter & how the hoses to the bulb is connected. Wher can I get a diagram to show me where the fuel line are all connected properly or can someone tell where all fuel lines are connect from the fuel tank to the bulb and carburator. tahnk you
Re: problem is that I do not know where the fuel lines...
Your carb has two hose connections, one is the inlet and the other is the return. The inlet (suction side) won't have any barbs on it (smooth brass pipe). The return side will have barbs to keep the hose from popping off if the line is plugged and is probably plastic. The inlet side should connect to the fuel filter that will be dangling from the hose inside the tank. Make sure the filter is free to move around the inside bottom of the tank

I know the feeling well when this happens. I to did the same as you and also did the clamp, but found the best way was to yous a crimp tool for fuel lines and its not come off since its like the tool to put brake lines on to the calipers and then you put the rubber hose onto it and using a fuel line clip to hold the rubber in place. has lasted the last 5 years now with no problems.
Open fuel tank, pour out fuel on clean flat area (away from any flames or spark sources) then check the 2 plastic hoses inside. One should have a fuel filter on it's end. The plastic these lines are made seams to disintegrate so, filter may not be attached and lines may be broken off. Replace them.
The fuel hose from the tank with the filter on the end goes to the main fuel inlet on the carb, this is the conection closest to the alloy pump cover held with a single screw, the other conection on the carb has a hose to the short conection on the back of the primer ( the suction side ) the longer conection on the primer ( pressure side ) has a hose back to the tank, this pipe just pushes into the top of the tank, just remember the primer pulls fuel from the carb, into the bulb, and back to the tank, not the other way round.
Are you sure you have conected the pipes the correct way round, the fuel hose from the tank with the filter on the end goes to the main fuel inlet on the carb, nearest to the alloy pump cover, the other conection off the carb goes to the shorter conection on the back of the primer, the longer pipe on the primer goes back to the tank, just remember the primer pulls fuel from the carb, into the bulb, and back to the tank.
The hose coming from the fuel tank with the filter on the end goes to the fuel inlet on the carb, this is the conection closest to the alloy pump cover held with a single screw, now take a hose from the other conection on the carb to the shorter ( suction side ) conection on the back of the primer, take a hose from the longer conection ( pressure side ) on the primer back to tank, this just pushes into the tank, just remember that the primer pulls fuel from the carb and dumps it back to tank.
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
start the engine open the hood and remove the system fuse the engine will stall, the pressure is now relieved the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank, driver side wear gloves/saftey glasses and have a fire extinguisher available (who knows!) the filter will have 2 hoses attached at either end. white/yellowish clips attach these hoses. feel for the top of the clip and push the 2 ends in and down. you may have to use a screw driver to pry the bottom of the clip as well. pull the bottom of the clip down, it will not come out of the coupling completely. repeat for both lines, pull lines firmly off of filter. unscrew filter from hose clamp. approx 6-10 oz of fuel will spill from lines and filter. you should use a pan. install new filter, in same direction as last. insert new clips into coupling, discard old. clip on "out" side may be reused if an R clip. tighten clamp on filter, attach hoses. push in clips to lock. inspect for leaks, wipe entire area clean of fuel. insert fuse and attempt to start. Cycle the ignition to run and off three times before starting to pressurize the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps.
The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from
the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this
line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.
fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank,
(about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The
plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This
keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.
(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an
angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them
off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.
the fule line that comes from the filter/ pick up will go straight to the nipple usualy the one closest to the middle of the carby.
the other hose comes from the carby to the in or **** side( punp it you can feel it)of the primer and then goes to the tank that is the return/ prime, nothing is conected to it in the tank. if you have the carby one the wrong way around it will not prime. just swap them over..
