Probably the fuel line has deteriorated and is cracked allowing fuel spillage. A remote possibility is the tank itself could be split.....remote though. Yes there are replacement fuel lines for most saws, some are OEM and have built in grommets to seal the connection into the fuel tank and some use standard fuel lines that can be cut to length and slipped over barbed fittings on the tank and carb.

You probably have to take it to a service center to have it done unless you like to tinker with dirty, oily, smelly and generally grimey power tools on your workbench or kitchen table.

Try Jacks Small Engines to find your parts. Have your model and serial number ready as you'll need it to get info out of their parts locater.

Seller says that it leaks fuel, is this a known problem ?

fuel leaks could be from split tank ,damaged tank fittings , hoses , faulty in carby
The seller is advising you of a problem with the fuel system of the bike as he has to by law
There are too many bikes of this make to have a manufacturers fault
Ring a bike shop that sells the brand and ask them direct what the problems, if any, are with the bike as the seller may be focusing you on a fixable problem and not reporting a more serious fault
Remember the saying --buyer be ware --so if possible you should inspect the bike personally and see what the problems are and run it your self

IT is likely that the carb is leaking fuel and filling the crankcase with fuel. Causing excessive crankcase pressure forcing oil into airbox through the crankcase vent. Check your crankcase for fuel and/ or being overfilled. If fuel is present fix the carb first, then drain and refill crankcase. After all is fixed run the unit outside for a few minutes and let it burn off excess smoke.

Ford f650 xl super duty will not start. replaced fuel filter. drained fuel bowl to fuel filter. It will not refill. checked all fuses, circuit breakers and relays. they are good. flushed fuel lines with...

If the fuel filter will not refill, you know you have a fuel problem. Some of the fuel systems use a "pull" system unlike gasoline engines using a "push" system with a rear fuel pump.

The "pull" systems need Vacuum in the fuel system to allow a draw from the tank. An opening at any point in the system will defeat the drawing of fuel. What you might try is a Vacuum pump attached to the fuel line at various intersections in the flow.

At the point of the air leak, you should find that you can not draw fuel past that area without "losing the prime". You also may want to fill the new fuel filter to reduce any air pockets in the system. I can not say if your system has a fuel pressure regulator, but a leak in its diaphragm can affect starting. Also if the air pressure was excessive, the diaphragm may have ruptured.

Please rate my info.

Hot water tank leaks, big time, as it refills, stops dripping

If the leak is from the tank itself, no you can not fix it. If it is a supply pipe and the leak is visible, in most cases yes. I would recommend you have this issue resolved very soon. If the tank has sprung a leak, it will be a matter of time before the leak becomes a flood.
