Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

1 Answer

Got a homelite ut 15039a (weedwacker with blade st 185)

The diagram shows 2 holes in the fuel tank and the one I was given has only one hole and i am thinking i need to drill another hole for the other fuel line to go into the tank. (when i press the primer bulb gas just shoots out the other fuel line and there is no place for it to go. .any suggestions?

I need the fuel line routing diagram for a Craftsman Model No. 358.791510 Weedwacker 32cc/1.9 cu.in. 2-cycle


The fuel line in the tank connects to the nipple. It then goes into the small hole in the tank and then the fuel line from the carb connects to the nipple. This line is the line that is attached to the body of the carb, not near the plate.

Craftsman 21cc weedwacker, need fuel line diagram


This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. 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. 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. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
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 the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

Fuel Lines


Off of the primer bulb there should be two lines, one goes to the tank, the other goes to the carb

Homelite ST-185 (15039A). Route new fuel line.


If you look closely there should be 2 holes in the fuel tank, also if you look inside the fuel tank there should be some remaining pieces of the fuel line and a fuel filter. If this has been sitting for any length of time you will also want to replace the fuel filter.

Now comes the fun... or a challenge

To start with you will need 2 sizes of fuel line ( go to a small engine repair shop) while you are replacing things you may want to buy a new primer bulb also.

to insert the fuel lines into the tank you will have to cut a tapered tail about 2 " long so that you can grab the fuel line with a needle nose and pull them through and out of the tank so that you can trim off the tapered tails. On one install the fuel filter and stick back into the tank, on the other trim the tapered tail off and pull the line back into the tank but leave about 1" sticking through the tank.

Now hook up you fuel lines to the carb and/ or primer bulb

Fill tank half full with fuel ... now test the installation if it doesn't pump fuel but instead you can hear it blow bubbles in the tank it is simple just reverse your lines on the carb / primer bulb

Retest if it works like it should you are ready to attempt to start it... good luck

Gas line installation on Weedwacker 18" 24cc


The hole in the tank is slightly smaller than the fuel line, else it would leak. So.. you can't push it in, you have to pull it in. I use a label tag wire (about 10" long), stick it through the hole and out the fuel cap hole. Snip the fuel line at an angle on the end, punch a hole in it then stick the wire through the line and twist it. Now you can pull the line through the hole.
