Question about Poulan Pe550 Gas Edger

1 Answer

The fuel lines have rotted out of the edger gas tank. How do I fix or do I need to replace entire tank with new fuel lines?Since there are no male fuel line connections exiting the fuel tank and just two holes where the lines were, I guess I need to replace the entire tank and get a new one with lines already attached. Thanks.

No you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.

Yes you should be able to replace the rubber tank seal that the fuel line goes through. Be sure to replace the fuel line(s) when you do.

How do you replace the fuel filter on a Weedeater PE 550 lawn edger?


You can find replacement fuel filters at a nearby hardware store. Once you have one, fish out the line from inside the tank and fit new filter onto line and place it all back into the tank. You will probably have to back out the tube a little after re-installation.

I just cleaned the carberator and new sparkplug it sounds like it not getting fuel when i put alittle gas in the carberator it starts and obviously stops? on my craftmen weedeater


if it is an older one, the gas lines like to rot away. you can usually tell by looking down inside the gas tank. you can also check to see if the primer is moving the fuel through the lines as you prime it

Rotted fuel lines


normally one fuel line has a small filter on the end of it. that one needs to be exactly the same size. that one sucks up the gas and sends it to the engine. the other fuel line is for the excess gas / air to return to the gas tank and keeps it from spilling all over you / or wasting fuel. it can be shorter but is required to be inside the gas tank to recycle the unused fuel

Line for fuel filter rotted out. need to replace tank assembly


No tank replacement is nessesary if its not cracked. Only the lines need replaced, The lines are oversize from the holes so the tank is sealed. If one line is bad they all are bad.

My homelite weed eater sx-135 the fuel filter broke of the tube


The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter, fuel line goes from the carb. to the bottom of the tank. It should rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank. The other line should go from the primer bulb to just inside the gas tank, (about an inch).
HINT: Cut the fuel lines at an angle before inserting them into the gas tank. This will allow you to get them in much easier.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Craftsman trimmer won't prime


A new carburetor would be simplest solution. You could try disassembling the carb, cleaning and replacing diaphrams, but just replacing the carb would be my choice. What is the model # on the trimmer and I can tell you the part # of the carb you need.

I have an older Weed Eater gas powered trimmer(Model XT 85T) The fuel lines have aged, rotted and broke. I have new lines (big fuel line and small fuel line). How do I get these lines through the holes...


gas line is 1/8" ID. NAPA autoparts sells replacement gas line that works but has an OD that will not fit hole in plastic frame where the carb sits. Just drill the plastic to the OD of new gas line and use needlenose pliers to install the line. Same goes for the gas tank. Just make sure it is tight fit so it does not leak.
