Craftsman 28cc gas weedeater gas line connections

The fuel lines in my craftsman 28cc gas weedeater have 'disintegrated'. I removed them without noting which lines go where - there a 2 holes in the fuel tank, a primer pump and (of course) 2 carb outlets.
Anyone know the proper connections or have pics of the lines connected ?

The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.

The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank


I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can 'fall' into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

Easy way to install fuel line and primer bulb return line into gas tank


Chainsaw fuel lines enter the gas tank from holes in top of tank. They are sized for a tight fit to prevent leakage. Make it easy on yourself when pushing the line through the tank by cutting a long lengthwise taper cut with razor knife 3 inches or longer to easily feed through that tight hole. Once started you will then have to grab it through the gas cap hole with needle nose pliers, then cut the tapered end flush and add fuel filter. Readjust inside length by pulling from above, then cut to length to upper carb fitting. If connecting to primer bulb a filter is not required and make sure the line goes to fitting on primer bulb marked tank.

What would be wrong with my weedeater when i press the primer bulb gas will start to come out of the gas cap ?


You could have a clogged tube from the primer into the carb, but it also sounds like the fuel tank is overfilled.

Why does the fuel not stay in the primer bulb, when I prime the craftsman weedeater with sim-pul


Fuel lines probably need replacing. Have you been using ethanol? The alcohol eats the fuel lines on most 2 cycle motors up.

Fuel line on husqvarna weedeater need replaced


They are just a pull/push fit. The fuel line has 2 flanges that should fit either side on the fuel tank. Pretty simple to replace.

I am not getting gas to my weedeater


Well, all the fuel delivery starts with the fuel filter in the fuel tank..so check that and then check the condition of the fuel lines, and then remove the covers from the carb (the one without the hole in the cover), Check inside the carb for a very small round fine mesh screen. Make sure it is clean...if not ..clean it with non-flammable brake cleaner. If it has debris on it, then it is restricting fuel flow thru the carb. Does the spark plug ever smell like gas at all. Is the primer bulb pulling any gas at all to the carb thru the small diameter fuel line? Check around and post back if you like.

Does the black gas line onmy weedeater connect to the (fuel filter?) in the gas tank?


Yes the fuel line on the 125l is an assembly that the fuel filter is attached to. If it is not it may still run but you are not filtering your fuel and any impurities could damage your carb and possibly your cylinder wall.

Poulan Weedeater sst25 25cc engine fuel line


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.
