There is only one line (tube) that goes from the gas tank to the carb. If there is a fuel filter it will be on that line. To check if it is plugged just pull the line off where it attaches to the carb. If you spill gas, that is not the problem. Replace the line and be sure to clean up the gas. Sounds to me like a carburetor problem, though.

The gas is not going into the intake but has good gas presuer

-Check the fuel filter inside the carburator and the cut off fuel plunger inside the carburator. It might be stuck in or lose from it floating arm.
That's why it doesn't let fuel flow to the caburator recevoir.

Replaced the fuel line on my WEEDEATER GTI 17 XP grass trimmer. Having trouble bleeding the fuel line. Is there a poecial technique? I filled the gas tank and let the gas flow through the line until I...

The fuel line is self bleeding, if there is a lot of air in the pipe there must be a hole in the pipe or the filter is not completlt submerged in the fuel.

My k750 petrol saw looses power during cutting

Before taking the saw completly apart, I would check the fuel filter which is inside the gas tank. There is a black hose with a filter on the end of it which lays on the bottom of the tank. the easiest way to get the hose out is to empty the gas out into a safe container. Flip the saw so that it is upside down and grap it with some needle nose pliers. Once the filter is out pull up on the aluminum coupling, this will release the filter. If you do not have a new filter on hand just simply use some carburator cleaner to spray the dirt and slim. There is a hole at the bottom of the filter that will most likely be pluged with slime. Spray some cleaner in the whole and use a tiny flat head screwdriver to clean out the whole. When the whole is free from slime, spray the filter down with cleaner again. This should do it. put the filter back on the end of the hose and fill with gas. Should work perfectly. Keep in mind this is only a temp fix. You should get a replacement filter asap seeming replacing a carburator will be costly.... I hope this helps!

Need to rebuild carburator on skilsaw chainsaw 1631 type 3,Cleaned the fuel line and filter,starts for few seconds if put gas in carburator but wont **** gas from tank

On a different thread:
Oct 22, 2009 – your comment
Got it started by cleaning carburetor but it smokes quite a bit played with 2 screws on side going in all the way and backing out one and half turn still smokes
Oct 22, 2009 – my reply
Tune it until it idles and cuts properly. 1.5 CCW is a good starting point. Tune for performance. 1 turn CCW is as lean as I’d go. Clean air filter, fresh mix, fully warmed up, bar mounted and properly tensioned. HTH

Replace fuel line

You can cut the line, push the fuel filter and fuel line attached to it out where you fill it with gas. When you are ready to put new line in, cut the fuel line at an angle so you can push it in the hole. Keep pushing in until it comes out the fuel tank fill hole. Attach your new fuel filter to the line and pull it back until the fuel filter lays in the bottom of the tank. Then cut the line to length and put it on the carburetor. Take the other piece hook on the carburetor and put it back in the tank.

Honda 13hp pressure washer cant get gas to my carburator

Hi there
If you have a Honda engine there's a fuel screen filter under the tank .
To get to it you have to remove the tank and turn the tank over so you can acess the filter. There's only 3 bolts holding the tank .
Check also the shut off gas valve by the choke .
Hope this help

Check the fuel inlet, and make sure that the 'feed' is ok.
You might want to change/flush the fuel filter.
Have fun ;)

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


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!
