Featherweight weedeater primer bulb repair?

I just replaced the gas lines on my featherweight weedeater. Now the primer bulb will not fill but I can see air expelling from the filter. How do I fix it?

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.

Why my weedeater idle to high and why air bubble in the primer bulb?


Its not un common to have air in the primer bulb, Check for a possible air leak in the system. This will make the saw idle higher than normal if its sucking air from elsewhere.

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.

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

Routing of fuel lines for a weedeater bv200 type 2. Which lines go where from the carb into the tank?


The line with the filter goes to the bottom of the carb. The other line goes to the outlet side of the primer bulb and the other line from the primer bulb goes to the top of the carb (The primer sucks gas through the carb).
Good luck!
Ps. if you are not sure which nipple of the primer is the outlet port then put your finger on one of the ports and push the bulb. If the bulb stays ridged then that's the outlet and if it collapses but doesn't fill but up then that's the inlet side.
