The fuel line goes into tank and fits onto a small filter that is in the tank. If your hose came out of the tank, chances are the filter is still in tank. You will reconnect by grabing the fuel line through the filler cap hole and then placing into tank.

How to fit new fuel line to a Flymo maxi trim 430


Removing old fuel line/disassembly
  • Empty petrol tank
  • Use a hooked/bent piece of wire or similar to get fuel line and filter out of petrol tank filler hole
  • Remove fuel filter from end of fuel line
  • Remove air filter housing
  • Remove choke control/ plate from carburettor
  • Ease old fuel line from carb. inlet. And clean inlet tube if necessary
  • Gently but firmly pull old fuel line through hole in base of tank
Fitting new fuel line
  • the new fuel line has too big a diameter to fit through the hole in the base of the fuel tank.
  • To get round this I heated the end of the tube with a lit match (but a blow torch or gas ring would do) until it was soft enough to fashion into a point- take great care the plastic obviously gets very hot and could burn ***** flesh. The tapered end you form should be at least 1cm long. Allow to cool
  • Trim off the end of the tapered point if necessary
  • My next problem was to get the tapered end through the tiny hole inside the fuel tank. To help with this I took the innards out of a standard biro then put the fuel line through the empty tube with the tapered end projecting from where the ballpoint used to be. Push the tapered end through the hole inside the tank.(a torch was useful here to help see inside the tank)
  • Pull the fuel line through from below the tank until you have enough to push on to the fuel inlet on the carb.
  • Cut the tapered end off the tube and push onto the fuel inlet .
  • Cut the other end of the tube so there is enough length to reach all parts of the fuel tank.
  • Attach fuel filter and push it into petrol tank
  • Refit choke plate and air filter housing

Replacing fuel line on ryobi 775r trimmer. when i removed old line and filter, the plastic fitting with the filter protruded about 1/4'' out of tank and was held by plastic retainer ring, now i can get the...


First off, get a piece of fuel line longer than you need for the job. With the gas tank removed, wrapped in a towel and put in a vice to steady it I fed the gas line in from the outside of the tank to through the fuel hole (where the gas cap fits on). I carefully worked the fuel line onto the filter until it was all the way on (touching the bottom of the filter assembly). I then gently pulled on the line feeding it through the hole. Then with gentle pulling, twisting and nudging from inside and outside the tank I worked the fuel filter nipple through the hole on the bottom of the tank until it was flush and secure.. Once the filter and fuel line were secure in the hole on the bottom of the tank, I then worked the secure ring up the fuel line and worked it onto the filter stem until it was snug. I then fed the line through the appropiate holes in the engine, trimmed it to size and fitted it on the nipple on the engine.

The Craftsman Sim-Pul string trimmer starts and runs for one sec.


The larger line is the fuel return line from the purge bulb and should have the nylon connector (funnel thing) on it holding it in place inside the tank so the line won't pull out.The smaller diameter fuel tank line goes from the tank to the lower pipe fitting on the carburetor (fuel intake line). This line has a weighted fuel filter inside the tank on it.
New fuel lines are recommended every so often as the ethanol added to our gas nowadays wreaks havoc on the lines and carburetor as well. Get new lines...cut them long....feed them thru holes in fuel tank...grab with tweezers or needle-nose pliars....put on either the fuel filter or the nylon retaining nipple and pull the one with nipple down to bottom of tank...one with fuel filter can stay long to help draw fuel in the tank (yes, it moves around and is supposed to).

How to get gas lines in tank


You can go to Home Depot and for about $7 U.S. dollars, they sell a replacement filter, primer bulb and install wire. It is really cool. You put the install wire thru the hole in the tank where the lines come out of the tank. There is a small hook on the end. This hook fits thru a small hole in the new fuel line end which is cut on an angle. Basically this allows you to fish the new line into the tank thru the gas fill port up thru the small holes in the tank. Then just plug the tubes on the carb. Easy Pizzi !!!

Reattaching fuel line to gas tank.


Get a new line the same size and length of the old one. Get the filter out of the tank. If it is as I think, it has a barbed end that goes into the outlet hole. Take your new line, fit it onto the filter end and make sure it is all the way on. Take the other end of the line and cut a taper on the end. Thread the end through the tank, into the outlet hole and aissist it so your filter sticks through the tank hole. There was a ring on the outside of the tank, on the line. Take that ring and run the ring over the end of the tube up to the filter bottom. Make sure it goes all the way up to the bottom, and tight.Square off the end and slip it onto the carb...Good luck...Lee

Need to know how fuel system and fuel lines are installed fuel lines dryrotted cant determine where to hook each line can i see a diagram


Line from tank with the filter on it is the supply line and goes to the carb inlet fitting. This is typically on the "bottom" of the carb (with the tank being up) and will usually have a fitting with barbs or a bulge on it to ensure a tight fit. The other fitting on the carb is the return line and is usually a straight tube fitting with no barbs. That line goes the suction side of the primer bulb. The third line goes from the outlet of the primer bulb to the return barb fitting in the bottom of the tank. Fittings have to be removed from tank to properly install the new hoses on them. Remove retainer ring on outside of tank and push fittings into tank, then shake out of the fill opening. More details on proper installation follows.

If yours is like all the Ryobi units that I have seen you just need a piece about 12" long of 1/8 ID fuel line. You can usually order that from parts suppliers or get it at some lawn and garden repairs shops. Hardware stores will not likely have it. There is a fitting with a hose barb on it that fits through the tank. On the outside of the tank on the bottom there will be a round plastic ring, assuming the fitting is still in place and just the hose split at the fitting. Use a knife or thin blade of some type to pry off ring. It is actually around the hose that is over the barb. Keep ring, you will need again. Now push fitting up into the tank. You may have to trim off the hose that is outside the tank on the barb to get it to go into the tank. Shake tank around and get fitting out of tank. You will see there is a piece of hose on it yet. Remove that piece of hose. Now take the new hose and slide it onto the barb. It must go all the way to the top of the barb fitting so that the hose actually goes into the tank through the hole drilled in the tank. The OD of the hose acts as the seal to keep gas from leaking out of the tank. You may need to put some oil of some type (vegetable oil works well) on the barb and inside of hose to help slip it on and use some pliers with smooth or rounded jaws ( no serrations, will damage hose) to get hose on. Thread other end of hose into the fill hole of the tank and out the hole in the bottom of the tank. Hint: Straighten out paper clip or use small wire inserted into the hole from the bottom of the tank up towards the fill opening. Slip tube over that and use the wire to guid the tube directly to the opening. Pull hose through the tank. When fitting with barb and hose over it reached the hole in the tank it will resist being pulled through. Carefully pull firmly on hose to stretch it so the hose/fitting "bulge" pulls into the hole in the tank. Look into tank and see when top flange of fitting is tight against the bottom inside of tank. You should see bottom of barb outside of the tank with the hose on it. Once in place put the plastic retainer ring back over hose and push up to bottom of tank. It should fit snuggly when you get to the "bulge" area. Cut hose length as needed to fit onto straight tube fitting on primer bulb. Should be good to go. You may find that the other hoses are getting bad also and may want to change them at the same time, as they will probably be ready to crack also. You can reuse filter from tank if it is not plugged, just add a new hose as described previously. Otherwise you can order a new filter with the line already on it. That line goes directly to the carb inlet barb. That barb is also hard to push hose on. Third line is from the return side of the carb to the suction side of the primer bulb. That is just a straight piece of 1/8" ID hose and pushes onto straight tube fittings, very easy to get hose on compared to barb fittings.

Fuel lines


Line into tank isn't easy to pass. I made small hole in line near bottom, tied 30 pound fishing line to it (with knot inside of tube lumen), passed line through opening from above, and with fishing line pressure pulling gas line in, I squeezed tip of gas line entering tank from above with needle nose pliers until the line went into tank. Then i pulled excess through until i could trim tip (with knot) through gas tank opening, and then reversed line pull back into tank. Trim other end to fit onto primer exit port.

Need manuel to show how gas lines are run to carb. & pump bulb


HOW TO CHANGE FUEL LINE ON McCULL0UGH 2014 CHAIN SAWS.

I have successfully changed the input fuel line by purchasing Tygon tubing from a local lawn equipment dealer. I did not see the box he cut this from, but the tubing I bought measures 0.190" outside diameter. I gave him a piece of the old tubing and he matched it up. A 18 inch piece cost me $1.19.

The routing of the fuel line involves three pieces, one piece from the fuel priming bulb to the carburator is 3 inches long, a piece from the fuel priming bulb to the gas tank is about 4 inches long and the piece from the fuel tank is about 7 inches long. The priming bulb sucks air and fuel from the carburator and dumps it back into the gas tank. Therefore, when you press this repeatedly, gasoline will eventually appear in the bulb when the gas line to the carburator is full of fuel. The bulb may not completely fill, there will always be a little air in the bulb.

The fuel line in has a filter on the end within the fuel tank. If you find this has broken off, as I did, you have to turn the tank upside down and shake the filter and any pieces of broken fuel line out of the tank.

Replacing the fuel lines within the carburator compartment is easy if you remove the carburator first. To work on this you must remove the two screws holding the carburator to the engine. You may need to use a small screw Torx driver, although on my chainsaw, there was also a long straight slot on the head. The line from the priming pump to the carburator goes to the left hand line on the carburetor (as viewing from the top with the blade extending away from you. The input line will go onto the right line on the carburator.

The two lines into the fuel tank are located in the middle of the tank left to right and one about 1/2" above the other. The upper hole is for the fuel intake line. The fuel line passes through this hole and a second hole visible within the tank fill hole.
This was the trickiest hose to replace. How I did it was to use a piece of #12 copper electrical wire stripped out of its insulation. This was fed through the 7-inch Tygon tubing piece until it emerged from the far end. I also found it necessary to put a bull nose end on the Tygon tubing in order to get it to feed into the tank hole visible from the tank fill hole. Why? I don't know, but after 20 minutes of trying to feed the hose (both naked and with the electrical wire inside) into that second hole, I gave it a bull nose on the tubing by careful cutting with sharp scissors and using a sanding block. Perhaps McCullough has a special tool to do this, but a call to their 800 number could not get a knowlegible answer from the parts person.

After the Tygon tubing shows up in the tank fill hole, I pulled it further with needle nose pliers and was able to pull the copper wire back out of the tubing. I then cut the bull nose lead I put on the Tygon tube and installed the filter onto it. I found that a little oil on the nozzle and the carburator lines makes the tubing easier to slip on. The stuff the filter and Tygon tubing back into the tank fill hole and towards the front end of the tank so that it drops into the bottom portion of the tank. After attaching the intake line to the carburator, use the needle nose pliers to pull excess line into the tank.


Reassemble the carburator to the engine and you'll be good for another 10 years of happy chainsawing!

Return fuel nipple is broke from finger pump


The part previously recommended is not the correct part if it is the return line that is bad. Return line does not use the filter. If yours is like all the Ryobi units that I have seen you just need a piece (about 3-4" needed, but buy extra.) of 1/8 ID fuel line. You can usually order that from parts suppliers.
