A hooked piece of wire through the gas cap will allow you to withdraw and remove the filter. A typical fuel system and a couple of suggestions follow:

At this point I like to provide an IPL that displays all fuel components and makes a good disassembly guide. Stihl considers all OE parts, IPLs and shop manuals proprietary. When they find an on-line source they force it be removed. Please contact them and request an IPL here:

Afternoon Mac;
I am going to give you a qualified YES.
It is possible with Husqvarna and Echo.
All Stihl parts are proprietary and new OEM parts must be purchased through a local Stihl dealer. A phone call to your local store will answer your question and whether they have one in stock. If you do not want to utilize your local dealer eBay for a used part is your best option.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH

Were does the small vent tube out the top of the gas tank go on a stihl 029 farm boss. mine broke off flush with the nipple and is leaking gas badly.


This is very important that the connections are correct. The fuel is pulled through the carburetor to purge all the air before starting. Air will keep the fuel pump from refilling the carburetor when attempting to run.

A filter is attached to the end of the fuel tube located in the tank. This hose is the fuel pickup and passes through a tight hole in the tank. The other tube is the return also from the carburetor and is open on the end returning inside the tank also fitting through a tight hole in the tank.

It is easy to reverse these tubes. If one has cracked it is likely all need to be replaced. Take pictures and take notes before starting.

Reversing the hoses allows for unfiltered fuel to fill the carburetor with the result of plugging the jets.

Stihl 012 av fuel lines


The 2nd line might be a vapor return line back to the fuel tank? I've dealt more with repairing bigger saws more than smaller ones. You should go to a Stihl shop&take a look at chainsaws about the same size as yours&take off the air filter cover&look to see where the carburetor lines go.
