Question about Poulan/Weed Eater #Wt200 711724 24cc Gas Blower/Vac

2 Answers

Replaced the fuel lines in my Craftsman weedeater. Now when I press the primer bulb, all it does is pumps air down the line into the fuel tank. I can't get fuel to the carb.

I replaced my primer bulb on my craftsman weedeater an am not sure what line goes where on the primer bulb can you help also not the gas leaks out of carb hole where


In regards to which pipe goes where, it's simple. If you pump your primer bulb with the pipes off, one side will suck and the other side will blow. The suction side will link to the outlet on the carb. The blow side will link to the return to tank. The fuel line with the filter on it will link to the inlet pipe on the carb.

Tip

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.

Diagram fuel lines tank primer carbutor poulan pro weedeater


I have no diagram but here are the instructions on how it goes.
The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so.

No gas getting from the gas tank to the carb. replaced hoses and filter already. can not even draw gas with primer button.


You either need a new primer bulb (leaking air) or you have the fuel lines routed wrong. Here is the correct fuel line routing just in case:
Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it.

I need a fuel line schematic for a WeedEater brand Featherlite Plus weedeater


Presuming the primer bulb is on top of the carb....Fuel filter line out of gas tank goes to the lower part if carburetor body. The other line (normally larger in size) coming out of the fuel tank goes to the primer bulb outlet on the top of carb.
If the primer/purge bulb is not on the carb, things are a little different. The fuel filter line out of the tank still goes directly to the carb, as the bulb will pull old fuel/air out of the carb allowing fresh fuel to flow in and pushes old fuel/air back to the fuel tank.
Fresh fuel in, old fuel out of the carb...you can hook up a piece of fuel line to the bulb and tell which one is pulling and which one is pushing..or depress it with your fingers on it...either way you can tell.

Not getting fuel replaced primer and hoses and not


It's easy to mess this up as I've done it in the past. If the unit has an external purge bulb, the fuel line from the fuel tank that has the fuel filter on it goes directly to the carburetor...near the part of the carb that holds the fuel pump and has the grooved cover (where an inbuilt purge bulb would be). The other line coming out of the fuel tank goes to the purge bulb. The side of the carburetor that has the diaphragm and metering lever cover has the line going to the purge bulb. Remember, this is not really a primer...the purge bulb pulls air and old fuel out of the carb and when it does this, fresh fuel flows into it...and then the bulb pushes that air and old fuel back into the fuel tank. Hope this helps.

Craftsman 28cc gas weedeater gas line connections


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.
