Bonjouir,

The filter is usually most likey, a little long cylinder, that slides inside the entrance of the gas tank. Just keep twisting gently, it should fall and snap it place, and along came filter...LoL :).

How does a weadeater edger pe550 gas lines hook up inside of the gas tank?


I am not familiar with your brand of machine, BUT... many machines have similar fuel line setups. Here\'s what I know.



Most carburetors have built-in fuel pumps that suck fuel from the tank. As the fuel pumps generally suck more fuel than the engine needs, there is a "fuel RETURN line" from the carb back to the fuel tank, which returns the excess fuel back to the tank. There is usually nothing attached to the end of this line inside the tank.



The "other" fuel line is from the tank TO the carb, and it usually has a tiny, weighted, fuel filter attached to a long piece of fuel line INSIDE the tank. This long, flexible, floppy piece of tubing allows fuel pickup regardless of how, what position, the machine is held.



The purpose for this set-up is threefold:



  1. The filter, of course, is to keep "trash" out of the fuel system and,


  2. The "long" fuel line inside the tank is to allow the filter/pick-up end of the fuel line to move around in order to pick up fuel from ALL points inside the tank,and


  3. The weight is to forcefully "carry" the filter/pick-up intake to the low point ["bottom"] of the tank regardless of the orientation of the machine and fuel tank!!!


On the machines that I replaced the fuel lines, to replace the suction line I had to use a longer than normal [when finished] length of line.



I first had to "fish" the filter, weight, and any nipples and or washers out of the tank.



  1. I then inserted the new line into the tank from outside through the small hose opening hole.


  2. To start, I put MUCH MORE [extra] line into the tank so that I could fish-out 5 or 6 inches thru the filler opening, allowing me to finish the connection of the filter, weight, nipple(s) and/or washers outside the tank where I had room to work!!!!!


  3. The use of nipples with washers expands the hose enough to keep the assembly from easily falling or pulling from the tank.


  4. Once all of the "in-tank" assembly was done, I then gently pulled the extra fuel line back out of the tank hole, thus pulling the weighted filter and connectors back into the tank. I left enough "loose" tubing inside the tank to allow the weighted fuel pick-up end to reach anywhere inside the tank.


  5. The final step was to route the line to the suction nipple on the carb, cut the line to proper length, and attach it over the carb suction/intake nipple.




Not being familiar with your machine, I can only hope this allows you to fix your machine! Good luck!!!!!

How do I replace a broker fuel line? The one broken has a filter inside the tank.


Hi doug c197...

I will also include a fuel routing drawing.
Before you remove any fuel lines, make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the tank for later reference.
You will need to remove all the old fuel lines and fuel filter out of the gas tank.
After you have all the fuel lines and filter removed.
You need a piece of wire...smaller diameter than the inside of the fuel line, insert the wire into the fuel line until it exits the fuel line then bend a hook on the end of the wire to hook over the fuel line.
You will lubricate about 1 inch of fuel line with a small amount of vasoline or light machine oil...
Now using your fingers or small needle nose pliers collapse the fuel line around the wire hook and insert it into the hole in the fuel tank.
After you have the fuel line in the tank, extend enough fuel line into the tank to exit the fill spout of the tank and remove the wire from the fuel line.
You will insert the new or cleaned fuel filter into the line and pull the fuel line to pull the filter just back into the tank.

Put a new carburator on and don't know how to hook


Hi janemueller...

Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.

I have a weedeater model Featherlite 711334 and the gas lines crumbled to nothing. Not sure how the set up was inside the gas tank as to which line goes where and hooked up to what inside the tank.


There are two lines from the tank to the carburator. One picks up gas and fills the prime bulb, the other is a return line. The pickup line should have a filter on the end of it that is in the tank. The other line just dumps back in the tank. Usually the reason these lines deteriorate is because of ethanol in the gas. Make sure you're using ethanol free gas.

Fuel line is bad and needs replaced. need to know


  • One line should be hooked to a small fuel filter or screen.
  • The other one is a dump or over flow that will put a small amount of unused fuel back into the tank.
  • You can buy this type of line at most Lawn Mower shops as a kit. 2 lines and a filer/screen.
  • You can use line for air shocks that fit some cars ie. Cadillac's

Fuel lines inside of tank fell off


This is the typical fuel line routing2.gif on many models: One line ( the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the fuel tank2.gif and goes to the lower port on the carburator. The second line goes from the fuel tank to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb. The third section goes from the top port on the primer bulb to the top port on the carburator. Hope this helps and best wishes.

On weedeater blower and vac gas line is broke from carb into tank does it just connect to fuel filter in tank model 1925


Yes if your asking about the fuel line yes it hooks to the filter out thru the wall of the gas tank straight into the carb. if it broke out side the tank you can try a smaller plastic hose to stick inside to reconnect the two parts. if it broke inside the tank try to replace as one hose.

Two ports on Walbro carb - which line hooks to which?


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

Let me know if you need further assistance.
