Clean the fuel sock on the pump and connect a pressure line or air compressor to the fuel lines to blow out the clogged lines if that don't work then clean the jets to the carborator

Trimmer won't prime to start

Look inside the tank. Some units have a stone inside that blocks the fuel line when it is tipped a certain way. Might be what's happening here.

Why does my 2003 FXD shut off when it reaches temperature? I am thinking carb or ignition module. happens riding or at idle . cools down starts up.

Hi Wade, and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or damaged battery.
2. Loose, corroded or broken battery cable.
3. Alternator not charging or below normal rates.
4. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
5. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
8. Fuel tank vent system plugged or gas cap not venting.
9. Fuel tank empty.
10. Fuel valve vacuum line broken or carburator vent line closed off.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.

Where the fuel lines go on a mcculloch 2.0 2014 chainsaw

The return line needs to inserted only about an inch into the tank as it is only returning fuel and not picking up fuel. Note some these return lines on other models have a line coupler on the end to prevent from coming back out.

My blower runs good for first 15 minutes, then will quit

Will it start again after you let it cool off? Run it till it quits then immediately remove the air filter and cover and give a quick shot of carb cleaner into the carb and attempt to start. If it wont start on a prime but will start later after you have let it cool, then does the same thing ( dies after 10 or 15 minutes of use) then it is likely the ignition module going bad.
I suggest you find a serviceing dealer to verify that the module is failing. Husqvarna warranties thier ignitions for life on most models.

Need to know how fuel line end in fuel tank on a weed eater. have two lines. on large one small witch line dose the filter fit on and were does the onther line stop inside the tank

Your Craftsman trimmer is made my Poulan/Weedeater and uses 2 different sized lines. The smaller diameter line is the fule supply line and runs from the pickup filter in the tank to the supply side of the carb. The supply side is usually the lower of the fuel nipples on the carb. Make sure to put enough line in the tank so the filter can drop to the lowest point of the tank while you are trimming. The larger diameter line is the return line, and will connect to the nipple on the carb that is closest to the primer bulb. From the factory, the return line went into the tank and had a small clear plasted connector on the end to prevent it from slipping back out of the tank. This fitting does not connect to anything in the tank, it is merely a return line. If the return line fitting is missing, just make sure to leave a couple of inches of line in the tank. If the filter is missing, you MUST replace will save you from having to clean the carb out every 10 minutes of run time.
Good luck!

Craftsman weedeater will not start

The most probable problem is no fuel delivery to the engine.

1. Check/replace the fuel in-tank filter, you should be able to easily blow through it once removed. The primer bulb will sink down and not return quickly if the filter is bad. Fuel will not return to the tank via the return line if the fuel filter doesn't allow fuel to be pulled in.

2. If fuel is returning to the fuel tank when the primer is pushed then your problem is inside the carb.

3. To verify this put a small quantity of gas in the lid of a water bottle (half full). And pour it into the carb throat. Replace the air filter to prevent a backfire from shooting flames out. Try to start the weedwacker. If it runs and then dies the problem is inside the carb.

4. If you are really good at working on things with small parts you can clean out the carb and replace all of the gaskets to solve the problem. If this isn't for you then you should take it to a lawn shop and have them clean the carb and replace the gaskets.

NOTE: Replacing the gaskets is very important because the gaskets get stiff and the fuel pump action of one of the gaskets is reduced or stopped.

Hope this helps, Karl
