SOURCE: replacing fuel tank on craftsman edger and other

ok If you have a Walbro WT series carb "without" a built on primer bulb here it is. First off if the fuel lines disintegrated you MUST disassemble it and clean it out. The MOST infintesimle speck of gas line trapped, can allow good prime and bad operation. OK? Don't be lazy on this. Just be delicate removing the flaps gasket and diaphram. ZAMA GND-12 Is the replacement Gasket and diaphram kit fot that carb. Use a cleaner, compressed air or blow good thru it. OK Now...Primer bulb, Carb, and Fuel tank, re connects: Smaller Diameter line comes from Gas tank (Connect filter screen to this in tank) to the short Straight brass carb connector. Primer bulb suction goes to the bent carb brass connector. If small line brings fuel "in" this other line sucks it back "Thru the primer bulb" and the blow side of the primer bulb sends it back to the fuel tank! So...Small Line brings fuel "TO/IN" carb thru short brass connect on carb. Other carb connect goes to bulb suction "IN", Then primer bulb "Pressure OUT" goes thru the larger tube "back to fuel tank". Trust me I know how frustrating a simple diagram is to find online fo this set up. And if you have a carb problem on top of the hook up uncertainty you got frustration. Not only was online help hard to find (Mfg...etc NFG at all!) My local repairshop in BBrook NJ could not tell me how!!! and thats no lie! Walbro has a "generic" carb diagram but no "hook up info" specifically. Poulan don't list it either. And these things routinly fall to pcs. all 3 of mine crumpled together on yr. 3 of use.

no you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.

The fuel line on my Craftsman trimmer rotted away. How do I fish out the rest out of the tank to replace it?


You may need to take the fuel tank off and fish the old lines out with a pair of needle nose pliers And then check out my Tip on this matter:

Model no.358791072 fuel lines were rotted.I need a diagram of the proper order


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The fuel line WITHOUT a strainer will go from the tank to the OUTSIDE primber bulb connection then from the primer bulb center connection to the carb. Item 7 this link comes with the diagrams:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Grass-trimmer-weed-wacker-Parts/Model-358791072/0247/1503820/P0808034/00002?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=358791072

There are several you tube videos here on replacing fuel lines:
(do not delete) utube.png
Something to note... inside the tank there is a fuel filter/strainer. Make sure to replace that fuel line also. The connection from the strainer will connect straight to the carb fuel mainfold connection. The center connection of the primer bulb will go straight to the carb fuel manifold.

Fuel lines rotted. Replaced but cannot prime. Primer pushes back into tank causing fuel to leak at cap vent. Would like to obtain parts manual


i recently worked on a chainsaw that i was putting back together and got the primer bulb lines crossed, it was backwards to the way it should have been, i recommend that you reverse the lines, it is an easy mistake to make when it can be counter intuitive like it was in my case

Rotted fuel lines


normally one fuel line has a small filter on the end of it. that one needs to be exactly the same size. that one sucks up the gas and sends it to the engine. the other fuel line is for the excess gas / air to return to the gas tank and keeps it from spilling all over you / or wasting fuel. it can be shorter but is required to be inside the gas tank to recycle the unused fuel

Line for fuel filter rotted out. need to replace tank assembly


No tank replacement is nessesary if its not cracked. Only the lines need replaced, The lines are oversize from the holes so the tank is sealed. If one line is bad they all are bad.

Dry rotted tubing on my weedeater blower.


Have it replaced at a lawnmower repair shop.
1.) Have them check the grommet (black round rubber like a thick coin with 2 or 3 holes), replace it if it is crumbly. It holds the fuel line and the fuel vent line - if your trimmer has it. Grommets on the average cost about $6.00. Not all trimmers have fuel grommets, some of them only have holes right on the fuel tank. 2.) Replace the fuel line with Tygon fuel line hose. Tygon can withstand UV light, petroleum, high and low temperatures while retaining its shape. Just make sure the replacement tube is of the the same inside diameter. For a small piece of Tygon hose, ave. cost no greater than $8.00. 3.) Replace the fuel filter. The one inside the tank, connects to the end of the fuel line. Fuel filter, good ones are about $4.00.

Craftsman trimmer won't prime


A new carburetor would be simplest solution. You could try disassembling the carb, cleaning and replacing diaphrams, but just replacing the carb would be my choice. What is the model # on the trimmer and I can tell you the part # of the carb you need.
